Enjoy it all in Crete

Enjoy it all in Crete.

As the largest of the Greek Islands, Crete offers the diversity of a small country. Its coastline is scattered with resorts that couldn’t be more different – youngsters will flock to Malia, families to Hersonissos and culture seekers to Hania.

This year-round destination has universal appeal – with its Mediterranean climate, flawless turquoise waters and sweeping beaches. Yet tradition still exists in the cobbled streets, charming tavernas and within its people - as shepherds herd their flocks in mountain villages and local women sit on bougainvillea adorned doorsteps. The past effortlessly integrates with the present in Venetian harbours, while the ancient towns and ruins give you a fascinating insight into past times. However you choose to enjoy Crete, its irresistible charm will have you coming back time and time again – there’s certainly more to this majestic island than first meets the eye.

Aghios Nikolaos
Aghios Nikolaos.

Traditional and charming. Aghios Nikolaos combines three waterfronts – the legendary lake, beach at Kitroplatia and a marina. Its sleepy feel and slower pace provides a delightful contrast to the vibrant neighbouring resorts of Malia and Hersonissos. But the bustling cafeterias, charming coffee houses and traditional taverns provide a buzz that is hard to resist – you’ll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy Cretan “mesedes”. The areas thriving art scene is visible at the intimate open-air theatre, summer cinema and in its shops selling traditional Cretan handicrafts.
