Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, it has bags of character and lots to explore. It's got everything from gorgeous sands to pebble coves and dramatic cliffs. It's steeped in legend, soaked in sunshine, and littered with little villages, romantic retreats and perfect places to party. Crete has long, hot summers and mild winters which makes it a great year round destination.

Crete is a great destination for thrill seekers and sun worshippers alike, you'll find watersports galore on lively beaches, and peaceful bays for snoozing in the sun. There are no end of great places to eat and drink in Crete, the fresh fish is amazing and sampling the local lamb is a must. Walkers will love the wild and rugged Samaria Gorge – a sturdy hike from the hills to the sea. Shoppers will be spoilt for choice for stunning jewellery, leather bags, boots and belts, and arty studio ceramics. And if sightseeing is more your thing, you won't beat the island home of the Minotaur for Roman ruins, Minoan palaces and beautiful Byzantine churches. Crete really does have something for everyone!
