Crete is the largest of the Greek islands. Situated just north of the continent of Africa, the island is easily assessable via the many ferries that ply there trade around the Greek islands. There are also two main airports on the island, one at Heraklion, and the other just outside Chania. The island boasts a long and fascinating history, a wonderful mountainous interior, and superb, long, sandy beaches. We have included some of the more popular resorts, plus a few of the more interesting attractions on the island, such as the palace at Knossos, and the Samaria Gorge.
