Greek Island getaways
It’s impossible to resist the allure of Crete with its Mediterranean sunshine, spectacular scenery and Greek charm.
Holidays in Heraklion and beyond effortlessly blend modernity and tradition – for every nocturnal area there is a quaint village seemingly untouched by tourism, along with pockets of Crete that will appeal to everyone.
You’ll be hypnotised by the picturesque scenery and crystal clear waters that adorn this magical island. If you’re feeling adventurous, explore the traditional inland villages or the dramatic Samaria Gorge. The sights of the island are truly spectacular, from the ancient city of Knossos to the Venetian harbour of Chania – a rich history is certainly evident throughout. As the sun goes down the focus turns to the island’s entertainment and nightlife. Be it a day-into-night club in Hersonissos, fashionable hangout in the old town of Rethymnon or a harbour-side taverna that serves the freshest catch.
