In this video, I am going through the 7 best areas and towns in Crete to spend your holiday.
It’s a big island and so easy to get lost in the many destinations, no wonder you may find it difficult to understand where to stay in Crete.
You will see what works best for a trip with kids, or a romantic break away with your partner. A quiet and relaxing stay or a crazy holiday with daily clubbing.

What is your take on Analipsi? I found a hotel there I like the look of. But would like to know what the beaches are like and is it within easy reach of livelier resorts via bus for example? Thank you
Great video !!
Hi great video – would you recommend miltanos raddison blu?
Can you please recommend a good hotel with sea views please near Chania beach? Thank you ☺️
Well my favorite is Heraklion.Amoudara beach is long sandy beach protected from big waves and Heraklion is city where you can enjoy every night not only in food but also in summer festival under night sky in old Venetian walls…
Thanks for your great videos on the Greek Islands and Crete. You've helped me to make a decision…my partner gets stressed out by my indecisiveness so you are a lifesaver 😆 Thanks again and safe travels!
That's amazing. Thank you so much. What can you advise about transportation to all these places you suggested visiting? Do you recommend renting a car or something else?

Thanx for the video. I'm planning a trip in Crete for July. Your suggestions are very useful. I've seen your name. Are you italian?
This seems to be a very charming place, I hope I can visit sometime when all this is over. Seeing and sharing places like this is why I love traveling and make videos so much!
🇬🇷 🌲 🌲 I miss the walk through the gorge of Samaria. You walk about 16 km from the mountains down into the sea. 🚶🚶♂️ At the end of the gorge you can take a boat 🛳 to Sfakia or to Paleochora. It’s a very nice daytrip. 🌲 🌲 🇬🇷
was really helpful, thank you!
Really nice video, enjoyed it totally!
Fantastic video, definitely helping me in deciding where to go!
