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.

    “A nice little place that offers everything you need in the holiday. Still quite grounded and not too crowded, at least in the preseason. Pleasant that there are still locals and an everyday life takes place.”

    “A beautifully grown place. It depends on what you are looking for. There is sufficient hiking possibilities and a very well-kept beach, with everything you need. The restaurant offer is large and very good. A car is recommended, but it also a bus several times daily to Ierapetra. You feel welcome in Mirtos.”

    “The place is very pleasant and easy Mirtos lain outside the tourist paths of Crete. There are no big hotels but inns, apartments and even cottages. The place is now no classic greek gem a la Santorini but has just the typical Greek life style. There is a nice selection of restaurants and taverns and almost exclusively typical Greek meal, hardly tourist-food. Entertainment are otherwise not available - but was us also not important. Mirtos and its inhabitants have simply there is something like a daily life and tourism is not determined the complete atmosphere.”
