Top 7 travel tips in Crete

1. Visit the Palace of Knossos

The majestic Palace of Knossos is the perfect place to learn about the Minoan civilisation Crete was the cradle of the Minoan civilisation that gave rise to the Europe we know today. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the majestic palace of Knossos to learn all about the secrets of this culture. Admire the palace and check out the Throne Room, walk part of the Royal Way, the garden and the Royal apartments.

2. Looking for unique beaches? Pink is the color!

There are only a few pink beaches around the world and Crete boasts two of them. These beaches are Balos and Elafonisi, and they have to be seen to be believed. The pink color comes from tiny crushed red shells, giving the sand this particular tone. Lagoon-like beaches with crystal clear and shallow waters that look like heaven on earth. Elafonisi is a nature reserve with this pink sandy beach. Paddle in the natural pool and lie back admiring the shimmering water, the Cretan coast and feel like you are in paradise. Balos, near Chania, is surrounded by a lagoon of pure light-green and blue color. You can reach it by boat or you can challenge yourself and hike all the way to the lagoon.

3. Hiking in the gorge of Samaria

Walking this ravine is the way to make it stay in your memory forever. Start this 10 mile hike in Omalos Plateau at the viewing platform and make your way to the “Iron Gates”, where the ravine tapers to 50 feet (4 meters). Along the way keep looking up to spot some kri-kri, an endangered feral goat from the island. Finish your hike and catch the ferry to Sougia or Sfakia. Enjoy one of the most impressive Greek natural jewels.

4. Lake Voulismeni

This beautiful and unusual lake is ringed by boats, coffee shops and restaurants in Agios Nikolaos and now it is connected to the port and the sea. According to the legend, this lake is bottomless but the truth is it goes down just 200 feet. Enjoy a coffee and see the lights reflecting on the water in the evening.

5. Chania’s Venetian Port

The Venetians started building Chania’s port in the early 1300s and finished 3 centuries later. It boasts a 17th century lighthouse with a minaret-like shape, a symbol for the city, and the center of Mediterranean Architecture. The magnificent Venetian port of Chania is one of the biggest attractions of the island, standing out for its fort. You can not miss the city market to try its gastronomic delights and raki, the local liquor.

6. Visit Rethymnon Old Town

Rethymno is one of the best preserved old towns in Crete where you can visit the Venetian church that later on became the Neratze Mosque. Nowadays is the odeon where music concerts are held. Walk the cobblestone alleys of this pretty town and enjoy a nice afternoon.
