Samaria Gorge

Ever since the Samaria Gorge was granted the status of National Park of Greece in 1962, it has consistently attracted thousands of visitors, quickly becoming one of the country’s most well-known natural wonders and a beloved activity in Crete. Located between the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) and Mt. Volakias, the Samaria Gorge is a natural marvel that you definitely shouldn’t miss. Encountering abandoned villages, amazing rock formations, and hidden water springs while traversing through a lush green forest, you will be amazed by this hiking trail, which also happens to be one of the most famous trekking routes in Europe.

Balos Beach

Travelers often say that Balos beach is one of those otherworldly places that will make you think that you stepped right into a postcard. Indeed, the pristine white sands and bright blue, crystal-clear waters of Balos are hard to take in at first sight. This extraordinary setting is created by a unique geological formation of a shallow lagoon on the tip of a small peninsula in Western Crete. Witnessing this remarkable landscape will become, without any doubt, one of your best experiences in Crete. Balos beach is an ideal family destination as the waters are quite warm and shallow, but also a nice fit for those who love snorkeling and spending time underwater. Balos beach and the surrounding area are home to an abundance of wild local flora and fauna; the area has been claimed as a “Natura 2000 site.”


Located just off the southwestern edge of Crete, Elafonissi is a spectacular tiny island and perhaps the most well-known summer destination in Crete. Visitors who reach Elafonissi for the first time are always amazed by the bright aquamarine waters and, of course, its trademark pink sand that is created by a unique biological phenomenon. What truly makes Elafonissi so extraordinary, however, is the fact that the waters between its shores and Crete are so shallow that you can actually walk from one island to the other if the weather is good. Still, regardless if you walk or sail there, this miraculous, exotic tiny islet is bound to amaze you.


A journey to Falassarna is another activity in Crete that should be very high on your bucket list. Located just a few kilometers away from the city, Falassarna combines a fascinating archaeological site, where an ancient Greco-Roman city used to stand, with a stunning beach, presenting visitors with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the rich history of Crete and its natural beauty in a single place. After touring the archaeological site, swimming in the azure waters, and tanning under the hot sun, make sure to head over to one of the nearby traditional tavernas for a taste of genuine Cretan gastronomy.
