My girlfriend and I are thinking of taking a romantic trip around some Greek isalnds this summer after our trip to Italy. Do you have any ideas about what would be fun for couples?

Crete is beautiful, lots of historical charm, beautiful beaches, little villages and amazing food. My advise is don't go to this island if you only have a few days. It is really big and anything less than a week doesn't even put a dent in it! My favorite area is Chania and we usually stay near Falasarna.

I’m a foodie, so I love finding the best restaurants to visit and enjoy some great wine with my girlfriend. Greece can be super romantic. Here’s a pic of this amazing restaurant in Rethymo that we went to. When I went back last year it has closed :( I was so pissed.

My cousin went on a honeymoon to Crete last year and she went horseback riding on the beach. It looked super romantic, and it sounds like such a fun activity.

The best advice I can give you is to rent a car and drive around to all of the beautiful different destinations. Crete is a such a beautiful island full of some of the best nature that Greece has to offer but it’s public transportation is terrible!! Take your time to explore and drive down the coast :)

If you like doing sporty things together, hike the Samaria Gorge! It's long, but mostly downhill (I think it might be 11 miles). Once you get down into the gorge, the views are stunning. Leave plenty of time to finish the hike, and drink plenty of water or electrolyte drink. There are water filling stations here and there on the hike, but honestly I would make sure you have enough water, just in case. Leave plenty of time to also explore the village. There is a nice, black sand beach at the end to lounge at, and you can also get a bite to eat. Don't miss the last ferry of the day or else you will be spending the night. Hiking in or taking a boat are the only ways in and out of the village.

Crete is amazing. Something for everyone. We've spent several weeks there, all told. We've explored from the east coast to the west coast and north to south, meandering through the villages in the mountain range in central Crete. Chania was wonderful, but our stay in Heraklion was also amazing. We'd hire a local cab driver for the day to bring us here and there. Family owned tavernas had the best food I've ever tasted in my life. Oh my! I'd love to return some day, Lord willing.

I am also a foodie ahaha. I like to eat my way through Greece, and everyone knows that the way to someones heart is through their stomach. Here's a pic of some amazing food I had in Crete.

My mouth is watering. Somehow their French fries are special too.

Hello,
I believe a "wine me, dine me" experience in Chania would be totally romantic. A private tour by a sommelier and wine expert at a local winery combined with amazing dinner under the stars would do it.

I would also recommend dinner at Tabakaria and Thalassino Ayeri for a cinematic scenery (it has been actually used as the setting for The Two Faces of January).

Do you have a favorite area in Crete to visit?

Crete is large enough where it's not an easy trek going from one end of the island to the other for a day trip, so I like to choose an area to stay in and then focus on exploring it. My personal favorite is the area near Chania, but I have stayed near Heraklion, as well, and liked it. Where do you guys all like to stay when visiting Crete?

Traditional Greek Music

Does anyone know the names of some Greek kids songs? The kind that may be sung in elementary school?

Where can I find adventure in Crete?

Hi fellow travelers! My two sons are super adventurous and love to do all of the crazy teenage stuff that they see on youtube. I am planning our trip to Crete and I want to book any activities beforehand. Any tips for beautiful Crete??

What is Cretan culture like?

I love getting to know the specific culture of the places I travel to. I've heard that Crete is pretty unique! What's special about Crete that I can't experience anywhere else?

Please show me pictures of the best beaches you visited in Crete!

Hey guys! I’m visiting Crete this year and I wanna go see some of the best beaches that Greece has to offer but there’s way too many to choose from. Do any of you have pictures from your trip? I would love to hear details from your experience.
