One of the larger islands of Greece, it was an independent state up until 1913 when it formally joined Greece. One of the earliest human civilizations once resided here, among greener landscapes of the time. The Minoans have certainly left some interesting ruins for modern day discovery. Today, visitors enjoy the many beautiful beaches along with plenty of fresh seafood.
Crete life is definitely Greek life, but it's also a little unique. You'll enjoy your visit to Crete if you're interested in beaches but also over land access to other sights of a large island destination.
Planning Your Cruise
Mix it up on your vacation to Crete and be sure you explore a few beaches as well as taking up some of the unique local culture. Be mindful that some beaches are pebble and not sand.
