Country: United Kingdom
Last visited Crete: September 2003
Crete is special to me because I always have a wonderful time
when I' m there, and great memories.
Favourite restaurants in Crete: Taman in the back streets of
the old venetian harbour in Chania, Ela also in the backstreets of Chania.
Favourite accommodation in Crete: Perle Resort Hotel and Health
Spa, Stavros and Casa Delfino Hotel in Chania
Favourite beach in Crete: Without a doubt my favourite beach
is Falasarna on the West Coast. Still undeveloped, a few loungers but
best of all the sea is wonderful
You have to see in Crete: Samaria Gorge, Lake Kournas, Palace at
Knossos, and Chania. The Allied War Cemetry at Souda is worth a visit.
Night Life in Crete: Pallas on the harbour edge at Chania. Great
place to watch the sunset over the sea. Other than that, I' m a bit past
the clubbing stage!
Off the beaten path in Crete: Go into the mountains. If you drive
from Chania to Sfakia, stop off at the War Museum just north of the Imbros
Gorge. Wonderful hospitality and fasinating collection of war memorabilia
this retired farmer has found on his land.
When in Crete be careful about Be careful about mad taxi drivers,
Raki!!!And Kamaki Boys!
Transportation: The infrastructure for getting East to West and
back again is excellent. However North to South is not so brilliant. Take
care when driving on mountain roads.
Cultural Tips: Never steal a Cretan' s woman
Favourite Links about Crete: This is the best one!
Additional Comments: Always be respectful, especially where religion
is concerned. Accept the Greeks' generosity in the spirit in which it
is meant. Do as much as you can when you' re in Crete, there is much more
to this island than beaches and bars
