A Crete holiday will see you in one of the larger Greek islands and arguably the most popular destination in the country. The most southern of the islands, it has a vast array of bustling beaches and quaint villages to enjoy.

With so many myths and legends having their origins in the island, such as the story of the Theses who killed the Minotaur in the ancient city of Knossos, you're bound to find many-an-opportunity to see ancient ruins and time-honoured artefacts.

But what is really unique about Crete is that, whilst it has some of the most amazing ancient sights to be found on the planet, the island is constantly updating itself so that today's travellers can also enjoy some great contemporary architecture, food, drink, and, most importantly, fabulous beaches.
