Crete holidays boast sandy beaches, gorgeous countryside and pretty towns, plus excellent nightlife and restaurants for those who like to have fun in the sun. Beautiful Crete is not only the largest of the Greek Islands, but the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea so if you're craving golden sands and sparkling azure waters, holidays in Crete are a superb option for friends and families. With diverse resorts to choose from (and enough beautiful beaches and coves for everyone to enjoy) you can pick the resort that is tailormade to your group. Whether you want to explore the colourful town of Aghios Nikolaos, chill in the sun-soaked resorts of Chania and Bali or dance the night away in buzzing Malia, Crete is sure to keep spirits high! Choose from full board hotels, last minute getaways and stunning self catering accommodation on this postcard-perfect resort and indulge in a luxury retreat for less.
Best beaches in Crete
Crete's supersized coastline means you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a space to sunbathe, with a whopping 650 miles of soft golden sands to lay your towel down on upon. There are boat rides, catamaran cruises, booze cruises, snorkelling and scuba excursions, plus all the regular fun watersports, pedallos and banana boats on the main resort beaches. Aghios Nikolaos (on the south coast of the island) is a popular cosmopolitan town with fabulous Blue Flag beaches, seafront restaurants and chic shops, or why not head north for the lively region of Heraklion, where you'll find Hersonissos, Stalis and Malia beach resorts.
Aquaplus or Watercity?
Crete has two waterparks for those looking for splash-tastic fun with the family! Aquaplus is located near Hersonissos and is popular for its aqua slalom and a crazy river, while Watercity, in Anopolis, boasts 36 pools and slides - enough to keep the adrenaline pumping all day long! Feel like diving a little deeper? You'll find a wide variety of scuba diving and watersports activities around the island - another excuse to stay close to the beach!
Greece's Party Resorts
Crete is considered to be (quite rightly) one of Greece's most popular party islands, and with its four fun-loving regions of Chania, Heraklion, Lassithi and Rethymno - it's easy to see why. Whether you're looking for buzzing party scenes in one of Malia's superclubs, sophisticated nights in Chania's glitzy harbour or a more laid-back evening consisting of cocktails by the coast, Crete has something to please everyone.
Mountain scenery from Samaria George
Need some chill time and fresh mountain air? The Samaria Gorge National Park is as blissful as the island's beaches and offers amazing hiking opportunities that start deep in the mountains, and end up practically on the shores of the Libyan Sea. Walk over captivating rocky landscapes as you admire breath-taking views from the cliffs and pass under cascading waterfalls. A trip to Crete wouldn't be complete without visiting the longest gorge in Europe, stretching over an impressive 16 kilometres!
