The beautiful island of Crete, Greece, has lot to offer travellers from scenic landscapes to soulful beaches. There are historic forts, splendid beaches, yummy food, and wineries. All of this is set amidst beautiful scenery. Let’s tell you the seven best things to do in Crete, and you can easily book a Heraklion car hire to take you to these sites.

  1. Seitan Limania Beach

This beach is near Chania( and Chania airport ) and is superb for relaxing  in the stunning Aegean Sea. While the beach is small and gets crowded, mornings are the best time to go.

  1. The village of Loutro

Loutro is a tiny little fishing village on the south coast of Crete. You will have to take a boat to visit this hidden gem. But it’s worth it when you laze on the waterfront and enjoy great seafood.

  1. Chania

Chania is one of the biggest cities on the Greek Islands and is worth exploring. You can visit the Venetian Harbour, the old lighthouse and the Agora Marketplace to try some freshly picked figs.

  1. Rethymnon

Rethymnon is an old, historic town with narrow, cobbled streets dotted with little cafes. You can also go to the Venetian Harbour while sipping on your frappe.

  1. Knossos Palace

Knossos Palace is the biggest Bronze Age site across the entire island and is often called Europe’s oldest city. There are amazing frescos and a spectacular throne room to see here.

  1. The Fotress of Koules

The Fortress of Koules is a site that is now closed for entry. But as you wander around Heraklion you can still spot a glimpse of it. Book a Heraklion car hire to explore other sites in the city, like the Cathedral of St. Minas.

  1. The Sacred Monastery of Arkadi. 

This monastery is about 20 km from Rethymnon and can be reached effortlessly with a Heraklion car hire. Do visit the bell tower for the Corinthian columns.
