Holidays In Crete
Crete is the perfect all-round holiday destination which truly has something for everyone
Boasting a coastline of 1,000 km with sandy beaches, coves and bays washed by the Mediterranean, Crete is one of the best places to choose for that bargain holiday or for a late deal holiday.
Crete is the fifth largest island in the Med and waiting to be discovered.
If you want a holiday in the sun and with plenty to do, this is the place to choose. After relaxing on the glorious beaches for a few days, dipping into the warm sea, enjoying a drink or two whilst watching the marvellous sunsets, it’s maybe time to get a bit more active and explore the archaeological sites on the island and take in some history! Burn off those calories that you’ve consumed while on your all inclusive holiday...See the Minoan Palace at Knossos, the 6,000 year old city of Gortys and the archaeological site of Phaistos.
But if archaeology is not your bag, don’t worry. The Aquaworld Aquarium in Hersonissos will blow you away. Open between 1st April and 31st October, this inexpensive venue exhibiting marine fish, reptiles and crustaceans will keep you enthralled for many an hour. The stables at Finikia offer a 2-3 hour horse ride into the mountains to enjoy the marvellous scenery, go during the day or the evening – the choice is yours.
Pink sand and blue sea are to be found by the Balos Lagoon. A tranquil and unspoilt landscape. Relax and drink in the surrounding beauty this region has to offer.
For a great family day out, the Limnouspolis water park will suit both adults and children. Check locally for the opening times.
There is so much natural beauty on Crete – beaches, coves, mountain ranges, vineyards, olive groves, fig trees. Herbs, such as oregano, rosemary, thyme, bay and mint, grow in abundance in hedgerows, but the most amazing sights are the beautiful wild orchids of all sizes and colours, decorating the landscape.
When you book your all inclusive holiday, your hotel will offer you a wide variety of local and international cuisine, and local drinks. You will certainly find something to suit your palate at every meal. All inclusive holidays will ensure that you get the very best value for your money.
