Last visited Crete: June 2005

Crete is special to me becauseIt's one of the few places I've ever been that when I travel around, I'm always making mental notes of what I want to see when I come back.

Favourite restaurants in Crete: Golden Heart (Yannis) Beach road in Stalis / Restaurant Mariana, Mesa Potami.

Favourite accommodation in Crete: Liked everywhere, and will be staying in Chania and Matala for a few days each in June, but booked into Gouves this time.

Favourite beach in Crete: Matala...... gotta be. Get a snorkel and look for the ruined roman pillars just a few yards off shore

You have to see in Crete: Melidoni Caves, road west from Chania, Vai beach, road from Ierapetra round the south and back up onto plateau.

Night Life in Crete: Never had a bad night yet! But there can be places from the laid back, to the boring, to the near deadly ... take your pick.

Off the beaten path in Crete: Just about everywhere.

When in Crete be careful about Be careful about drivers! Look out for coaches on narrow mountain roads - particularly in the places they advertise excursions (Gorges, Village nights etc)

Transportation: I like to travel by hired Car. If you can manage, don't go bigger than a Panda - the extra power and speed is not worth the price, as you won't get the chance to use it much and the village streets won't take them very easily in places.

Cultural Tips: Don't dress for the beach when away from the resorts. Don't try and pull back the curtains in the churches, give way to traffic and people who aren't on holiday and smile!

Favourite Links about Crete: -

Additional Comments: Generally, the Cretans want you there and appreciate the good you do for the economy. But remember that they're not there for your benefit and don't like gawping and finger pointing.
