Crete, the southernmost of the Greek
islands, is popular with tourists from
across the globe for its rugged mountainous
scenery inland; it's beautiful coastal towns
and beaches, and typical Greek culture.
Visitors are drawn to Crete year-round;
because of its southerly position Crete
benefits from a warm, temperate climate -
you can comfortable lie on Crete's beaches
and sunbathe from April until October!
Enjoy the splendid scenery Crete has to
offer, explore the tiny traditional villages
inland or visit the ancient Minoan palace of
Knossos - whatever you decide to do with
your stay in Crete, you are sure to have a
memorable and enjoyable time!
