Crete is a dream destination for many visitors to Greece. As popular as it is though, Crete still somehow manages to hold on to its unique personality. The beaches are an obvious reason to set your sights here. Heavenly stretches of golden sand or pebbles, clear waters, organised or secluded and off the beaten track. You’ll find every kind of beach here in Crete. Lap up some culture to, with Crete’s long history that includes, Minoan palaces, Venetian towns, Minoan palaces, Medieval Castles and Ottoman mosques and Byzantine monasteries.
Being such a large island – the third largest in Greece, there are so many things to see and do in Crete.
Relax on the crystal beaches of Paros Island, stroll around small traditional villages and enjoy warm evenings spent outside enjoying an evening drink. This popular Cyclades island is a hit with romantic couples, the younger crowd and families of all ages. Meander through the paved streets of quaint villages like Naoussa, Parikia and Lefkes with their whitewashed houses and iconic blue-domed churches. Golden Beach on the south eastern side of Paros is popular for windsurfing and you can easily take a leisurely day trip to the small island of Antiparos, with crystal beaches and a chilled vibe.
Sink your toes into the golden sands and ... relax.
One of the world’s most romantic destinations is all due to one of the world’s largest volcanic eruptions taking place in about 1,500 BC! So many years later and the breathtaking views, shimmering sunsets and luxurious resorts are what makes the island such a hot destination and keeps Santorini at the top of most people’s romantic wish lists.
Visit the submerged volcano and the caldera, explore the delightful caldera villages with their sugar cube houses and fall in love with the stunning island of Santorini. Be sure to seek out the best sunset spot at Oia, Visit the Minoan Town of Akrotiri and get up close to Santorini’s volcano. Take a day trip by boat to Nea Kameni and walk up the black, solid sides of this steaming lava island. Seek out some healing hot springs in Agios Nikolaos while you’re there too!
