The best beaches for families are the more lowkey beaches that have good shade and shallow waters. Anywhere with a current is also really bad. You don't want to leave kids alone in water that is dangerosu

Elafonisi Beach is my family's favorite beach. The sand is a pretty pinkish color and it is so soft! There are also services here, which is helpful. We've tried Matala, too, and that one is also good.

Elafonisi has some of the calmest waters. It's so soothing and there are no rocks!! There's nothing worse than going to a beach with rocks or trash :(

I totally agree! I want my beach experiences to be peaceful and relaxing, not filled with junk and sharp rocks. I agree with you guys, Elafonisi is a great beach, but there are so many great ones on Crete!
 

My mid day snack in Crete

A few summers ago when I was in Crete, I would go to the manavi every day and get fresh peaches and eat them daily :) Nothing more relaxing than fresh fruit and nature all around

I thought i'd share this with everyone. It showcases the spirit of my favorite island

My favorite memory in Crete is watching a pentozali performance

Pentozali is a super popular Cretan dance! I was at a restaurant once and they had a few guys there who knew how to dance it super well! It looks something like this:

What to do for an evening birthday celebration?

Any tips for a nice evening to celebrate a birthday in Crete? My friend is turning 35 and wants to celebrate at a restaurant and do a fun activity on the island. Cheers!
