Im planning on visiting the whole island, so which is the best airport to fly into? Does it just depend on where I want to start my trip?

The 2 bigger airports on the island of Crete, Greece are Heraklion International Airport and Chania International Airport. There is a smaller, regional airport in Sitia Crete as well.

To answer your question it depends if you are coming in from another Greek island or international then I would stick with the more main larger airports.


I would personally fly into Heraklion because there is a lot to do in that area. You can always make your way to Chania later on the trip. Since Heraklion is the larger airport, there ear more options for flights.

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!
