My Amazing Car Journey Through Crete: Mysterious Places, Delicious Dinners and Breathtaking Views

I love Crete. For me it is not just another Greek island, it’s more like a small country where you can find anything you want. The largest island of Greece is so fascinating and diverse that you can spend weeks here and not get satiated with it.

Car Journey Through Crete
the only palm forest beach in Europe

To explore the Island from its east part with the only palm forest beach in Europe, to the south coast with absolutely stunning beaches and isolated coves, I would suggest to rent a car, preferably a convertable, to enjoy the taste of the Island and of the fresh sea breeze while driving along the picturesque coastline.

Traveling through the island you will see and smell orange and olive groves, forests of cypresses, pine-trees and evergreen oaks - and a profusion of wild flowers.

beautiful coastline of Crete

Crete has hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline and offers an almost endless supply of beaches. And there is another benefit of renting a car – you won’t need to stay at the crowded beaches of Hersonissos or other tourist resorts. Instead you can just drive and stop at any blissfully untrammeled small rocky bays where you will find a piece of sand just for you.

Top restaurants on a Crete

Greeks live to eat and drink. Wherever you go in Greece you will find some super delicious food. My choice was always in favor of fresh fish and sea food and a glass of cold white wine. It was marvelous!

Agios Nikolaos town on a Crete

Agios Nikolaos - an arty, leisurely and sleepy town, built partly atop of ancient remains of bygone residents' homes. There you will feel unbelievable charm and calmness which makes it must to visit place for an after lunch coffee break.

When you go up the mountains you will find small amazing villages with Greek cuisine taverns and narrow lovely streets. Here you can become a part of genuine local life.

One day I decided just for a change to explore short distance sights by scooter.

I fell in love with traveling much earlier than I fell in love with my first man. And I'm still faithful to that love (But I have exchanged some men since my first one). I have never had a reason to regret my passion. I constantly dream of going further, it gives me indescribable emotions and meaning to my life.
