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.

    “Long pebble beach, a little uncomfortable to get in some places the water. A diving school. Deckchairs, there are usually at the waterfront tavernas that you get for free if you eat it there. People in Mirtos are very friendly, there are a few nice shops, small shops for food, but no gas station, no bank.

    Very quiet evening at most times Greek folk music in the taverns and cafes. Approximately 45 minutes to the east coast there are beautiful sandy beaches with shallow access to the sea (ideal for small children).

    One can centrally situated in Crete, but it is very quiet and Heraklion is 1 hour 15 minutes away (over the mountains - what but overall very good to drive is). About Ierapetra and then up north the draws entirely on over 2 hours.”

    “Mirtos is a small, relatively originally retarded fishing village which still has a good infrastructure. Nearby is the beautiful beach of Tertsa we recommend. And there, the tavern Lambros.”

    “There is good shopping in Mirtos - 2 supermarkets, a butcher, a baker, a butcher combined / dairy goods store. Several quaint restaurants with tables overlooking the water. Extremely reasonable prices and good food, but not the big culinary surprises - typical Greek dishes. The locals are friendly and very helpful.

    For larger purchases, we drove to Lerapetra and acted in a large Lidl.
    Mirtos is a beautiful, small, quiet and peaceful town without a lot of tourists. It feels as if one comes pretty close to the real Greek environment.

    The local beach is beautiful and also child-friendly.

    Possibility to rent equipment for snorkeling and diving at the beach.

    Excursions with boats to small islands from Lerapetra.”

    “Mirtos is a pleasant little place, marked by individual tourism. There is a good restaurant choice, 1 bakery, 1 small supermarket, a fruit shop and several Touriläden. The nearest ATM is in Ierapetra (14 km), a gas station, there is not. Beautiful beaches in the area.”

    “Mirtos is a beautiful little place. Especially Individual tourism. An adequate selection of Hospitality is present, most of them are located on the beach promenade. There are some tourist shops, bakery, fruit shop, small supermarket. No gas station and the nearest ATM is in Ierapetra (14 km). Comfortable and relaxing after staying previously at the bustling northern coast. The scenery in the surrounding area is rather sparse. Some beautiful beaches in the neighboring villages .. On Sunday we were able to follow the Orthodox worship on church speaker ...”
