Travel: 5 Things To Do in Crete

Sunday, July 26, 2015

I've always absolutely loved travelling. After my recent trip to Crete I couldn't help but put together a 5 things to do guide as we visited so many gorgeous places while we spent a week out there! 

Chania Harbour 

First thing I'd recommend for places to visit is Chania Harbour. It's a place full of shops and little markets to visit. Ben managed to forget his sunglasses when we got to Crete and we found some knock off ray ban sunglasses for 6 euros! Along the sea front there was so many lovely places to eat and so many choices. The further you walk down the harbour the more cute and quirky restaurants you will find.

When me and Ben visited the harbour we found a church we wanted a photo next to and an Irish tourist took this photo of us which I absolutely love.

Chana Light House
After a browse around the Harbour, it's well worth visiting the light house. I love looking at new sights and a little adventure and so it was lovely to walk along to the light house and see the view of the harbour.

 Elafonissi Beach
From where we were staying in Crete Elafonissi beach was hard to get to. We had to hire a car and follow a very badly detailed greek map to be able to find the beach! After a couple of hours of driving along rocky roads and on the coast of Crete we came across one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. It really didn't disappoint. It was genuinely so pretty and the water was shallow so you could walk in the sea really far out without it coming over your legs!

 Gramvousa Island
My favourite day of the holiday was visiting Gramvousa Island and Balos Beach. Gramvousa Island was one of the most gorgeous views I've ever seen! We got on a coach and a boat to get to this Island and it was well worth the trip. We paid about 40 euros each for the coach and the boat from Chania and back. It was the best day out so if you end up going make sure you set a day aside to go to the island and the beach.

 Balos Beach
After going to Gramvousa Island we hopped back on the boat and went over to Balos Beach which was a short 20 minute trip away. It was the most amazing beach and it was very deserted as well. The main people on the beach were people from cruises as if you drove it's a very long walk down a hill to get to the beach. If you love a beautiful sea this beach is for you.

Have you been to Crete? Any other places you'd recommend visiting?

I loved your list Becca!
I have lived in Crete for some time of my life and all I can say is i LOVE this island. I would also add Spinalogka to your list, its the island the book by Victoria Hislop was referring to.
