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.

    “All facilities for daily needs available, nice cafes and tavernas on the beach, good swimming; Bus connections very sparse, with independent arrival car rental almost essential, altogether very recommendable gastronomy.”

    “The place is one of the most beautiful we have seen on the island. with a beautiful promenade with nice restaurants by the sea and a nice little town center with a great butcher (homemade sausage is recommended) and mini markets that are open late at night. There is also a nice café, ATM ATM, nice shops and a bakery.”

    “Mirtos and its local tavernas and beach are great and Crete fantastic to visit -the locals are so friendly. However to get there you must go down a steep, loose gravel track that is quite a challenge. Coming back uphill is not so bad but a couple of us tumbled on that way down”

    “Two girlfriends and I wanted to spend a relaxing beach holiday and came across the village myth. Myth is very small and not too crowded by tourists, which came very much to us. There is a promenade, where many different restaurants are and in the evening Livemusik is played. The beach is so far beautiful, you have the possibility to rent a beach chair at a beach bar or use this after you have been there. To lay in the sand, this is simply too hot.
    There is a small supermarket and several small delis, as well as souvenir shops. All in all, it is also in the long term also as a self-catering relatively expensive. A nice holiday, however, we agree that a week there is enough. For families with children certainly also a great holiday resort.”
