It’s well worth hiring a car in Crete, you can the see that the beautiful villages drowning in green-Olive green, vine green, citrus green and vegetable green-add living colour to the sometimes harsh views in which life’s traditional Cretan rhythms have not changed in centuries: coffee under the shade of old trees, traditional dances, sousta and pentozali to the sound of Cretan lyre.
Old cities hide behind walls, their narrow alleys winding past squares, churches and ruins. Ports like Chania, built over ancient Kydonia, picturesque Rethymon, Heraklion, cosmopolitan Agios Nikolaos and beautiful Sitia developed on the North side of the island, with only Lerapetra on the southern shore facing Libya on the North African Coast.
There are many elegant hotels in Crete offering wonderful spas, fine dining, excellent water sports, great kids clubs and fantastic gold courses. Watersports and waterskiing are very popular, and easily organised through most of the hotels in Crete. Or you can simply soak up the sunshine on one of the many beautiful beaches in Crete.
The beaches in Crete stretch over many miles, with small bays and coves, sandy dunes, pebbly shores, coastal caves surrounded by steep rocks and the characteristic dark sank of volcanic soils. In 2006, 404 beaches and five marinas in Greece were awarded the converted blue flag, a figure that puts the country in a top-ranking position among others in Europe.
