Why don’t you take off for Crete?
♦ 6 REASONS TO VISIT CRETE ♦
For the Warmth, Generosity and Hospitality of locals.
Nowadays, in our modern society people are more and more individualistic.
By going to Crete I rediscovered what is being warmth and welcoming. Local people always great you with smile and generosity.
These kindness and thoughtfulness are a real gem in our today’s world.
For the beauty of Crete.
From the beaches offering each of them something a little different (crystal clear water, small coves, bustling beaches, the Elafonissi and its pink sand, the Balos Lagoon, and so many other hidden gems) to the mountains, the gorges and the waterfalls by passing through the charming narrow streets of its cities and villages, Crete’s views and landscapes are gorgeous.
For the Authentic Cretan Cuisine
Cretan cuisine is a pure delight : flavorful and varied, always cooked generously with fresh fruits and veggies.
The Cretan diet is not just a variety of dishes laid on the table. It comprises a whole philosophy of life and represents the lifestyle of the Cretan people. In the Cretan culture food plays a central role.
Because Crete caters for all ages.
It is unbelievable the sheer variety of things to do there.
From sailing, diving, snorkelling, watersports, to hiking or road trip through Crete’s natural beauty (Samaria Gorge, waterfalls…) passing by, visiting the old towns with their quirky street markets and inspirational architecture, without forgetting the discovery of its thriving culture and historic treasures ; whether it is the Palace of Knossos or one of the many ancient ruins scattered throughout the island, Crete’s rich history is on display wherever one looks.
For its climate.
The weather is always perfect and the summer last longer !
Because it’s cheap.
When you summarize the 5 first reasons Crete seems to be already a perfect place to visit, but to those reasons you can also add this last one: Crete is very affordable. Even with a low budget I guarantee you will enjoy and love it!
