The ancient island of Crete is the fifth-largest in the Mediterranean and is home to a magical tapestry of splendid beaches, ancient treasures, vibrant cities and dreamy villages.


Historically the home of Europe’s first advanced civilisation, the Minoans, it has since been ruled by Romans, the Venetian Republic, and the Ottoman Empire - and this melting pot of cultures influences Crete’s vibrant atmosphere.


On the north shore, Heraklion is the island’s largest city and capital, where you can see the archaeological site of Knossos and the Historical Museum of Crete. Venture east to see some of the island’s unspoiled gems such as the fishing village of Agios Nikolaos. Boasting over 1000km of coastline, there are also plenty of stunning beaches to enjoy - seek out Balos for its Caribbean-esque white sand and turquoise waters, or view the largest palm tree forest in Europe at Vai Beach.


To escape the heat in the summer, venture inland to the island’s dramatic mountains - hike the length of the Samaria Gorge and get lost in its winding river path, or experience thrilling views from Giouchtas Mountain.


At the end of a long day, sample some authentic Cretan hospitality and seafood at a local restaurant - this is the perfect place for a diverse, sun-soaked holiday.
