Destinations in Crete
Holidays to the Heraklion area of Crete have something to offer around the clock, starting with early morning sunbathing stints on the beach and ending in dusk-til-dawn clubbing.
Golden beaches, cosmopolitan harbour towns and myth-spiked historical sites are yours for the taking on a holiday to the Lassithi area of Crete.
Beach time tops the priority list during holidays to the Rethymnon area, but if you’re willing to leave your sunlounger, you’ll be rewarded by the region’s history and locally-made wine.
