Crete is the largest island in Greece. Its located south of Eagean Sea and north east of Mediterranean Sea. What comes to mind when you are in the island? Here’s the best thing to do and how to beat the heat while visiting the place.

Laze around by the Beach
Are you a beach bum or just after the sun? If you based yourself up north you’ll enjoy the Eagean Sea or if your down the southern part you’ll be spoilt with the Mediterranean Sea. Laze around by the shore or just have a good book to pass time, while topping up your sun tan.

  1. At least in Crete there is a bit for everyone, the beach bum and the cultural and adventure seeker. I have been to various places in Greece but Crete is still on my list.

  2. While others go here with romantic dates, its also good to go for a solo trip! More time to reflect and the pictures are amzing. I love the scuba diving

  3. Greece!!! I haven’t been there yet and hoping one day soon. I’m actually not sun lounge, haha šŸ™‚ I would like to do something fun and explore around all day. Other than scuba diving, is there snorkeling as well?

    Maybe add cuising or hiking if they have that? šŸ™‚
