The hospitable and sunny island of Crete is one of the most popular beach destinations in the Mediterranean. Tourists are waiting for the best beaches in the picturesque bays of the island, the azure and clear sea, as well as the historical antiquities of Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos and Rethymno.
The first civilization originated in Crete several thousand years before the advent of our era. Many historical monuments have reached us through the centuries. Today, guests of the island have the opportunity to explore the mysterious labyrinths of the Knossos Palace, admire the impregnable Venetian fortresses or look at the ruins of ancient cities.
The swimming season in Crete lasts from the end of May to the end of October. The winter months are ideal for exploring numerous attractions, as even in January the daytime temperature rarely drops below 15 °C.
