Crete is the largest Greek island and famous for it’s sunny coastline and lovely taverns. The laidback and lovely island is an absolutely fantastic place to just laze around and chill out at the beach and enjoy a few drinks in the sun. But there is so much more to the island it isn’t recommended to do just that. The sun sand and sea treatment is necessary but once you’ve lazed around for a couple of days you can discover the lovely sights of this very beautiful and huge space. Ancient sites like Knossos, medieval monuments like Spinalonga and natural wonders like the Samaria Gorge await. In truth Crete is a very wholesome and lovely tourist destination if you have the explorer’s eye.
