The Greek Islands are a very popular holiday destination for those who are looking for sun filled holidays in a picturesque location and one of the most popular destinations in the Greek Islands is Crete.
Crete is the largest of the Greek Islands and as a result, it has much more to offer the average tourist than its neighbouring islands. Crete is filled with fantastic tourist resort hotels, sandy beaches and fabulous mountain villages which really must be visited. If all of this sounds good to you, then you should definitely consider a package holiday in Crete.
A package holiday in Crete is the most affordable means of visiting the island; by booking every element of your holiday together, you can quite often get discounts and so it is always a good idea to do so when possible.
A package holiday in Crete will provide fun for all the family, so whether you are travelling with young kids, teenagers or are simply travelling with other adults, you will find that Crete has much to offer in the way of experience and entertainment.
Crete is one of the most fascinating places to visit thanks to its very unique wildlife. As well as many interesting animals, there is an abundance of wonderful wild flowers and unusual plants which provide a free form of entertainment.
In the summer, Crete is extremely hot and this means that most tourists tend to flock there between June and September. However, if you are not particularly a sun worshipper, visiting in the Autumn or winter months is a great idea as you get to see snow on the mountains without being too cold on the main land and you can enjoy a more sedate level of nightlife which is perfect for relaxation,
If you are a fan of culture, a holiday in Crete will not disappoint. Crete is home to Herakolionwhere an archaeological museum can be found and there is also an ancient castle, Roman villas and wonderful ruins to be found.
