What to see and do in Crete
In this section, we will mention the wonders of Crete to discover during your stay on the Greek island.
Monastery of Arkady
It is one of the most important religious centers in Crete. In turn, it functioned as a hostel during the Ottoman invasion. Locals visit their site not only for the church but also for the surrounding gardens.
Nightlife of Malia
The Malia region is the ideal place in Crete if you are looking to have a good time during the night. It is located north of Heraklion and has a plethora of taverns and discos to choose from.
Hike through Richtis Gorge
It is a Greek national park, located between Heraklion and Sitia. It has an extensive path inside where you will have contact with different animal and plant species. In the end, you will find a waterfall and a beach.
Are you looking to visit a beautiful beach with palm trees and sun throughout the year? Well, Vai Beach has all that and more. Similar to the Caribbean, the turquoise water and golden sand make this site a unique place.
This beach is located in the Lasithi region, one of the sectors of Crete with the most impressive panoramic views, as well as having the cleanest coastlines. It is an area that is difficult to access (by car and then on foot), so it will be perfect if you are looking for a moment of disconnection.
Discover the City of Chania
One of the main attractions of Crete is its striking cities. For example, the old city of Chania is described as the most attractive corner of the island.
It is the second largest city in Crete. In it, you will find a perfect coexistence of cultures, such as Venetian, Ottoman, Turkish, and Greco-Latin.
In the evening, you can dine in the downtown taverns, the perfect place to watch the sunset over a glass of local white wine.
Moving in Crete
In Crete, Greece, the bus service works well and several regular lines run along the north coast.
However, to tour the island, the most suitable means of transport is the car, although taxi fares are reasonable. The mountain roads, between the villages, are now paved.
What to Eat and Drink in Crete
The Mediterranean area is world-renowned for its gastronomic offer and beverage production.
On the one hand, on the island of Crete, you will find many vine plantations, which you can visit. Some 12 special grape varieties from the region are harvested there.
Among the most successful wineries, we find Manousakis, near Chania, Vidiano, Dourakis, on the way to Sfakia, and Lyrarakis, in Heraklion. Many have a guided tour and personalized wine tasting.
On the other hand, in Crete, you can find various dishes whose main ingredient is not only fish and shellfish but also goat and lamb meat.
Do you want to enjoy typical Cretan dishes? Then visit Argyroupolis, a hidden town between Chania and Rethimno. Their specialty is a roast kid and grilled trout. And not only that! It is surrounded by valleys and springs, where you will feel as if you were in a story.
As you will see, the island of Crete has a lot to offer. Now it's your turn to choose what to visit!
