Crete offers it all. It does not matter if you seek a stunning sandy beach which are often found in the north or if you seek the history and culture that Crete has to offer. History dates back to the Minoan period during the second millennium BC and there are plenty of more modern ruins, churches, monastery’s to visit.
As you would expect the cuisine is also amazing. The general diet is made up of fresh fish and chicken and we highly recommend visiting a traditional Greek tavern and try the ever popular Mezze’s. V
