Crete is something more than just a Greek island. Undoudebtly, it is a Mediterranean gem, which is located in the far south of Greece and marks the borders between the Aegean and the Libyan Sea.
Truly, some say there is no place on earth like on the island of Crete. Why? Simply, because Crete embodies perfectly what makes Greece such a beautiful country. It bursts with amazing beaches, turquoise crystal clear waters, magnificent mountains, a plethora of buzzy cities, world's most famous archaeological areas, and picturesque villages.
It is an island yet it doesn’t feel like one. Green mountains, barren hills, deep gorges, and sandy beaches seem to unite all Greek landscapes in one island.
