Country: UK

Last visited Crete: 2001

Crete is special to me because I feel like i am returning home when I step off the plane and smell the scent of the herbs, yes even over the stench of the aviation fluid!

Favourite restaurants in Crete: We have made many friends in Crete over the years that my husband and myself have been visiting and have been treated with nothing but kindness on each visit: Petrino in old Malia, Artemis in Stalis, Amphora in Chania, Kri kri in Ag. Nikolaos. We have also been lucky enough to visit some fish restaurants in Iraklion who don't have names written in English so I'm afraid i can't share them with you!

Favourite accommodation in Crete: Koni appartments in Stalis, St Nicholas bay hotel in Ag. Nikolaos for the lap of luxury!

Favourite beach in Crete: Elaphonisi at dawn
You have to see in Crete: Elaphonisi, Iraklion and Chania, both buzzing with life, Samaria Gorge. Any villages away from the tourist areas

Night Life in Crete: Local taverna to eat and drink in late

Off the beaten path in Crete: If you hire transport you can very quickly get away from the busy tourist areas. It would be silly of me to suggest anywhere, what you need to do is set off early one morning and just drive! Take your time, stop and stare and let you imagination run away with you!

When in Crete be careful about The sun! use plenty of high factor sun cream, drink lots of water. The roads, more to fear from the tourists on motorcycles than most of the locals!

Transportation: Excellent bus service.

Cultural Tips: Treat others as you expect to be treated and remember that you are a guest in someone elses country. Also don't be surprised if asked, what we as British perceive to be quite personal questions, it's just the Cretans being interested

Favourite Links about Crete: -

Additional Comments: Where ever else I holiday in the world, I need to come to Crete at least once a year for my "fix"!!
