Crete


Under the rule of Greece but with its own strong sense of identity, Crete is the country’s largest island and offers a strikingly diverse variety of terrains, from verdant greenery to white sands to snowy peaks, known as the Lefka Ori (White Mountains). The Ideon Cave, located on Mount Ida – the highest peak – is said to be the birthplace of Zeus, the great ancient Greek god. With dozens of mountain villages and Bronze Age settlements to explore, glittering azure lagoons to luxuriate by and exhilarating activities such as hiking, climbing and water-sports to enjoy, a visit to Crete truly represents an escape from everyday life.

Things to do in Crete


During the Bronze Age, Crete was home to a great number of Minoan settlements, many of which exist in beautifully preserved states to this day. The most popular is Knossos, ancient finds from which are displayed in the Iráklio Museum of Architecture, another fascinating spot that is certainly worth visiting. If you just can’t wait to get outdoors and take in the rolling landscape to the East of the island, you should certainly look into taking a hike along the beautiful but eerily-named Gorge of the Dead – so named because Crete’s ancient civilisations would bury their dead in the caves there. If you’re looking for sun, sea and sand, Crete has it all in abundance. Elafonisi beach is a well-known beauty spot on the island, boasting a beautiful islet that can be reached on foot at low tide via a sandbar. The islet boasts a number of smaller secluded beaches hidden from the mainland, and is popular with nature lovers interested in birds migrating to Africa. Of course, Crete’s beaches also offer activities such as surfing and diving for those looking for a thrill.

Weather in Crete


With summer highs in Crete reaching around 26 degrees Celsius, though even in mid-spring, temperatures are likely to surpass twenty degrees. Winters are often cold and wet, however, and the temperatures in the higher regions of the White Mountains are often icy.
