Crete is the largest island in Greece (about 8200km2) and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean. The coastline is over 1000km long and offers you sandy beaches, coves and bays and several hideaways only accessible by boat.
The island is divided into four regions. From West to East they are: Chania, Rethymnon, Iraklion and Lassithi. Tourism is well developed all along the North coast, where you will find the largest resorts. Because of the mountain ranges that cover Crete, the South coast is less accessible, with fewer and smaller resorts, but ideal if you who want to avoid mass tourism.
Recently, agro- and eco-tourism have started to be developed, showcasing the fantastic fauna and flora of the countryside. Nature trais, hiking, bird watching... these are just some of the options available for those of you who want more than just a beach holiday.
