The largest and one of the most impressive of the Greek islands, Crete has a rich cultural heritage that infiltrates every aspect of life here. Immensely proud of their own unique identity and traditions, the local way of life here is a celebration of the island’s history as the first recorded civilisation in Europe. While history is of huge importance here, the island has adapted to become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Gorgeous golden crescents and warm crystal-clear waters, rugged landscapes to explore, a vibrant party atmosphere and delicious local delicacies to tuck into, all blend seamlessly to create an unforgettable trip. And since the flight to Crete is just an extra hour away than Spain, why not switch it up this year? A holiday to Crete for 2020 can cater to your every whim and desire – so, whether you’re a hardcore clubber, a beach bum, a culture vulture, or simply want to escape to a quaint village, Crete can provide it in spades.

While it would be easy to laze the days away on the sun-drenched beaches while sipping cocktails, if you want our advice, try to pull yourself for a day or two to explore some of the local heritage. Our four essentials have to be the Samaria Gorge, the Ruins of Knossos, Rethymno Beach and the Dikteon Caves. A trek to Samaria Gorge offers some of the island’s most stunning scenery and is perfect for photo opportunities to make your friends back home jealous. Make sure you hire a tour guide for the day when checking out the ruins of Knossos for the full inside scoop on this ancient wonder. For your own personal slice of paradise, head for the beaches of Rethymno, the most peaceful in all of Crete and for our money, the best. Explore the mythical birthplace of Zeus, the king of the Greek gods, with a step through time at Dikteon Cave. With an eerie ambience and chock-full of stalactites and stalagmites, it’s easy to see why this location is the stuff of legends.
