Travel Guide

The south of Crete is perfect for all individual tourists, adventurers and sun worshipers.

Southern Crete is famous for its wild natural beauty, exquisite cuisine and thousands of years of culture and history. There is so much to explore here in the central south that you never really need to drive more than 1-2 hours to visit both the remote beaches and small mountain villages.
Take a ride on impressive coastal roads, past secluded bays with a view of the turquoise sea, follow the winding country roads through the barren and lonely mountains along impressive gorges. Enjoy nature, culture, and delicious food – and adapt to the slow pace of the Cretans.
