Crete Holidays

Show on Map

Sandy beaches, seafront tavernas, ancient palaces, 24-hour nightlife – this sun-soaked island has the lot.

Beaches galore

Crete is the largest of all the Greek islands and comes with swathes of beach-blanketed coastline. You’re sure to find the perfect spot, whether you’re after sandy stretches for sunbathing, rocky coves for snorkelling or wind-swept waters for surfing.

Resorts for all sorts

Looking for a family-friendly holiday with sun, sea and sand? Agios Nikolaos, Sissi or Stalis will tick all the boxes. For a taste of tradition or a romantic retreat, head to the hills where you’ll find quaint villages like Koutouloufari and Piskopiano. If it’s world-renowned nightlife you’re after, make a beeline for Malia, the island’s party capital.

Step into the past

Crete is steeped in history. Some of the mountainside villages have barely changed in centuries, while the sprawling ruins at Knossos are over 3,000 years old. The archaeological museum in Heraklion is one of the finest in Greece and will tell you everything you need to know about the island’s past, including its ancient glory days under the rule of King Minos.
