Carefully selected by our experts especially for you
Your Destination —
Fascinating archaeological remains are sited all over the island, from the colourful reinvention of Knossos to the arid mystery of Phaestos. Three separate mountain ranges riven with spectacular gorges and rivers stretch from west to east, with lush valleys falling to a varied coast of small fishing villages and magnificent sandy beaches. An absorbing mix of Minoan, Venetian and Turkish architecture, the island’s towns weave together palaces, churches, castles, and minarets alongside the bustle of markets, cafes and tavernas.
The Palmera Beach Hotel 4* sits on the northern coast of the island, on the seafront in the beachside resort of Hersonissos, where you can find bars, restaurant, and beautiful beaches.
