Why go to Crete

Soaked in sunshine and wrapped in mystery, Crete is somewhere that will quickly get under your skin. A magical mixture of landscape and legend, the Greeks believe that Crete could be its own country, and as soon as you set foot on the island, you’ll understand why. Ancient columns stand out against bright blue skies, rocky coves hide secret beaches, dizzying gorges splinter forested mountains, and hilltop villages plod on at their own timeless pace. Myth bumps into reality, tradition meets tourism and pale sand slides into a perfectly clear sea. One holiday in Crete and you’ll be hooked for life.

Step into a perfect postcard

Crete is both the southernmost island in Europe and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean.

Home to over 650 miles of coastline, it’s a dreamy package holiday destination dotted with tiny coves, hidden bays and vast swathes of golden sand. Think long sun-kissed days, barefoot walks, morning swims in turquoise waters and sunsets that leave you speechless. It’s Greece as you’ve always imagined it.

Whether you’re looking for family holidays in Crete with kiddie-friendly waves, a romantic retreat buried between headlands, a luxury all-inclusive escape or a beachside blowout with a bunch of mates, Crete holidays can provide.

Explore a natural Shangri-La

Crete’s beaches are just the beginning of a bigger, more beautiful story. Inland, you’ll find a rich tapestry of wildflower meadows, hillsides bursting with wild herbs, soaring mountains and traditional villages.

If you like to keep active, cheap holidays in Crete are the dream ticket: hike through the longest gorge in Europe, meet the locals in tiny hilltop tavernas, wander through sun-dappled olive groves or visit the eye-opening ruins of Knossos.

Even if you do decide to go for all-inclusive holidays in Crete, you should munch as much local produce as you possibly can, from homemade cheeses to foraged greens and freshly baked pastries drizzled in honey.

Whatever you do on package holidays in Crete, don’t just stick to the edges.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
