Crete holidays

Discover idyllic beaches and ancient civilisations

The largest of the Mediterranean islands, Crete is steeped in history, myth and legend. Its stunning mountain ranges are dotted with caves and sliced by dramatic gorges, and its rugged interior is blanketed in olive groves and wild flowers. In contrast the north coast is fringed by wonderful sandy beaches while breathtaking drives along the gloriously undeveloped rugged south coast lead to an unspoilt paradise of pretty isolated coves.
