Travelling has been a big passion of mine since a young age. When I travel to different country and exploring their culture and city it excites me and inspires myself to do great things and keep exploring and sharing my experiences.
We wanted to plan a trip to one of the many Greece Islands and we decided on visiting Crete mainly for the amazing beaches that we saw. When we go to Crete we didn’t realise how massive the island was until we had to drive from Heraklion port to Chania where our hotel was located, the drive took 2 and half hours if I remember correctly. I wanted to create a post of some of the things you should see why in Crete.
Things to do in Crete:
- Elafonisi Beach – link to post –
- Balos Lagoon – link to post –
- The Samaria Gorge – link to post –
- Ancient Aptera
- The Palace of Knossos
- Chania Old town – link to post –
- Heraklion Archaeological museum
- Agios Nikolaos
- Arkadi Monastery
- Star Beach water park
There is so much to do in Crete thats properly a quarter of the things to do in Crete. If you are planning on visiting Crete then I suggest going for more than a week if you want to see a lot of places mainly because everything takes way over an hour to get to so If you want to explore different places, I recommend hiring a car everything takes over an hour to get to, unless you want to stay in once place then don’t hire a car.
