Explore Crete

A legendary land of myth and imagination, Crete’s fascinating history includes Minoan palaces at Knossos outside present-day Heraklion. Among the many memorable places are splendid beaches, charming villages and a family-oriented, welcoming Mediterranean lifestyle. The Cretans’ relationship to music and dance plays an important role in island life, and its cuisine is considered one of the healthiest in the world. From the sun-drenched northern beaches to the cliff-lined southern coast and the valleys, hills and mountains in between, the island’s natural beauty is a wonderful playground for active and leisure travelers alike.

On the northwestern coast of the island is the city of Chania. Here you can wander around the old Venetian harbor, lighthouse and maze-like alleys to admire beautiful Venetian and Turkish mansions, fountains and elaborate churches. Taste sumptuous Cretan cuisine and wine, before heading out to the national park’s White Mountains for a day of adventure.

Flanked by the White Mountains and Mount Psiloritis, the remote Rethymno region is known for its historic castle, long stretches of sandy beaches, traditional mountain villages and luxurious resorts. For an arty, leisurely atmosphere, plan to visit the northeastern Lasithi region, with beautiful cities and sun-kissed beaches.

Nestled between two picturesque mountain ranges on the central-northern coast is the island’s capital city, Heraklion. This small metropolis is home to a famous archaeological museum that houses Minoan artifacts. Head over to a must-see attraction — the Palace of Knossos — a monumental symbol of Minoan civilization.

In Heraklion, you can shop for designer fashion on Daidalou Street. There are also stores, shops and markets in large cities like Chania and Sitia. Don’t miss checking out the wares at one of many open markets, where you can buy everything imaginable. Or, venture outside the city to an olive grove or vineyard to taste local products.

The island’s centuries-old recipes are blended with modern creative versions that lead to wonderful eating experiences. From family-owned restaurants to small taverns and cafes, everything that is served is locally sourced and beyond delicious. Try fresh mizithra cheese pie, octopus with potatoes, lamb with hilopitis (noodles) or baklava (sweet phyllo dessert). Cretan wine, olive oil and olives are some of the best in the world, and have been grown here for more than 4,000 years.
