I already decided to visit the Samaria Gorge. I won't do the whole hike, but rather hike into the gorge from the village.

Now, I am looking for some other experiences to do that involve the outdoors? I know that Crete is so pretty, and I want to spend some time in nature while on the island.

The island is beautiful - I would take a tour or hire a taxi driver to show you around. Besides Samaria Gorge there's Preveli Lake, Dikteon Cave (Cave of Zeus), White Mountains (Lefki), some of the many beaches... I've also rented a car and driven around - the island is pretty everywhere!
 

A beautiful sunset in Crete

My family and I were driving yesterday and just needed to stop on the off beaten path to admire the sun that was just about to set. Sometimes the best entertainment is right in front of you. 460C58D0-C5C2-47CF-A96E-41B973F05128.jpeg

Great Beaches to Visit on the Island of Crete

Crete has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. I thought I'd share this link I found:


I haven't been to Crete in a while, but the next time I go to Greece, I was thinking of spending a few days here. I have only been to a few of these and of the ones I've been to, Balos is my favorite.

Those of you who have been to Crete, what do you think of this list?

Visiting Theriso on Crete.. Advice?

Lately I have heard so much about Theriso and how great it is, particularly the food. It seems like it is a "must visit" on Crete. What do you guys think? Do you have any advice for me? I have been looking into Cretan cuisine and wanting to collect information for my next trip to Greece.

Great Area in Crete for a Wedding?

Some of you may remember that I am planning a wedding in Greece. So excited!

I think I might want to look at the island of Crete for it because my guest list will likely be pretty large, and I feel like the island has a ton of options and things to do.

Now, I am wondering which area to focus on. Chania? Heraklion? Something else? Most of the guest list will be coming from other places, so we will need a large enough area with plenty of options for places to stay and things to do.
