A seductive landscape of flourishing countryside, soft-sand beaches and undulating mountains, Crete is undeniably beautiful. Its charms are more than skin-deep: explore the island’s mythical history, Bronze Age artifacts and imposing fortresses.
When to go
Food & Drink
Not to miss
Crete comes alive at night, as buzzing clubs pulse with music and local hole-in-the-walls fill with chatter. Local Cretan wine is a must-try, but beware ‒ it’s rather potent. Don’t leave without sipping on a glass of raki: while strong, its bitter taste goes excellently with seafood.
