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.
