Is the ferry bearable? Has anyone done this trip? I believe it's about 8 hours

I have not taken a ferry from Athens to the Greek island of Crete, but there are several options to consider:

Spend a great day keeping yourself busy in Athens and grab the overnight ferry to Crete. You have a choice of accomodation and the cost is very reasonable. Arrive refreshed having had a nice sleep and hit the ground running on arrival in Crete. I’ve done it from Athens to Chania and will do it again. Had been a flier but tbh the ferry is wonderful.

I agree, if you don't get sea sick then its a great trip

I have done it. It was fine and I would do it again! I had a sleeping compartment so I ate dinner in the restaurant on the ferry then got some sleep. It costs more but makes the overnight ferry a lot more doable.
 

Horse back riding in Crete is so beautiful

I was looking at some activities to do in Crete and I think horseback riding will for sure be on my list!

You should visit Spinalonga island in Crete!

During the Venetian occupation of Crete, the area was commonly used to harvest salt. It was also used as a leper colony. Now, the island is a top residence for tourists, who love exploring the pebbled beaches and old fortress that once housed Greece’s lepers. Now it is the most popular archaeological site in Crete after Knossos. Pretty eerie, but totally worth checking out.

Elafonisi beach is just unbeatable

The low tides are the best part of Elafonisi beach because you can wade in the water and relax without waves, seaweed or deep dirtier water. I love this beach!

Beautiful Toplou Monastery in Crete is totally worth visiting

I swear Greece is one of the only places where visiting monasteries is like a must do! Toplou monastery is so stunning and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to see some less touristy sites in Greece!
