Where Zeus used to bathe

Crete | Crete is the most popular holiday destination for those people who want to spend their holiday in Greece. Due to the diverse countryside the biggest island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea provides the holiday maker with many alternatives and options. Regardless whether you are seeking a holiday on the beach (more than 1000 kilometers of coastline), want to undertake a hiking tour to the mystic places related to the Greek Gods or just would like to take a stroll through one of the many attractive towns every holidaymaker will find this island an absolute paradise. Crete also welcomes families with children with open arms. The beaches offer the smallest family members a lot of space to play and explore. Those interested in exploring the sea world further down will find a selection of scuba diving schools where you can make your diving license. A popular daytrip is the under nature conservation protected Palm Beach of Vai which can be found on the east side of the island. It is referred to as the Caribbean beach of Europe as its characteristics are a fine white sandy beach surrounded by old palm trees. One of the most beautiful and longest beaches Crete offers can be found in Rethymnon. This is a tourist town with many fish taverns in a Venetian port and numerous small souvenir shops.
One of the main attractions of Crete is the Samaria Gorge on the south side of the island which is the longest in Europe. Those who dare may take a hike along the cliffs. In the Diktaean Cave, that is one of 3000 mountain caves to be found on Crete, you can experience the starting point of Greek Mythology. A legend has it that Zeus was born and raised in the cave of Psycho which is located in Lasithi in Eastern Greece not far away from Heraklion. Another popular tourist attraction is the palace of Knosso which is one of the most well known archeological excavation sites in the world.
When paying a visit to the town of Heraklion you must plan to visit the archaeological museum as it is regarded as one of the most spectacular of its kind with unique artifacts. To round off a lovely day you should also plan to look up one of the many taverns. Here you can take in and be enchanted by the Greek folklore with Mediterranean flair until late into the night.

    “Many beautiful taverns and small grocery stores within walking distance. Nevertheless, a rental car is recommended. Beaches at 3km. For beautiful beaches you have to go further. Many sports and shopping possibilities 3 km. The locals are very friendly and outgoing. Many speak good English and even some words of German. As a starting point for excursions well located.”

    “Very nice villa. Enjoys a peaceful setting with a beautiful view and you can still fast on foot to old Hersonissos .Dort there is a supermarket restaurants and even a pharmacy.
    The villa has been lovingly restored and the owners have tried touching to us. I can recommend this holiday home with all my heart. Thank you, it was certainly not the last time.” The review of the area has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

On November 11 celebrates the patron saint of the 'Episkopi' of St. Minas.You can visit Argyrakeio War Ethnological Museum, where at the sight of the exhibits come alive some memories of heroism and selflessness.You can go through the municipal park of C. Panagiotaki (1), a place full of greenery, a modern recreation proposal, a real oasis. The region of Episkopi inhabited over time from the Minoan period until today.
