Crete is the largest of all Greece islands. It is best known for its fantastic beaches family friendly hotels and excellent food. With the relaxed atmosphere will make Crete the perfect family holiday destination.

Crete is a magical little island located at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea and just off the southern coast of Greece. Although it actually forms part of Greece, like many of the other islands dotted around these waters, it has such a diverse and fascinating culture that you could be forgiven for thinking it’s a country in its own right. It’s also a beautiful island to visit, with an abundance of palm trees, beautiful sands, hidden grottos and clear blue waters. Dotted amongst the mountain ranges are the idyllic little villages, where locals still handpick olives and transform them into olive oil using traditional methods and on the shorelines, fishermen still catch fresh fish for selling in the market daily.

This fabulous little dot of land is popular with us sun seekers because our flight times and costs are usually short and small, at least in comparison to a lot of other places we’d need to fly to for that kind of sunny weather. And aside from the obvious climate benefits, there are plenty of things to do here, so that everyone, young and old, can be kept entertained for hours.

We love the Aquaworld Aquarium at Hersonissos where most of the animals were rescued due to injury or illness. It’s a brilliant day out for the whole family. The Manousakis Winery is a great stop on any sightseeing trip (for the adults obviously) and you can pick up some excellent organic wine made on the premises. We might not normally suggest a wine tour with children, but these tours are by appointment only and they’re happy to have children come along, run around the vineyards and have a light lunch. We also love the Finikia tours on horseback which kids tend to love. Don’t worry if you’re a horseback riding novice. These guys are professionals – they give you a saddle and everything!


Things to do in Crete with kids

Enjoy a boat ride in one of Crete’s most scenic areas, the Mirabello Bay, and take a dive in its clear waters. This is easily one of the most popular excursions on Crete. Visit the infamous island of Spinalonga and uncover the island’s mysterious past. More details...

Limnoupolis offers plenty of family fun, and educational games. There is a central pool which is 1500 m2 with an artificial island. The highlights of the water park is the artificial river, the "lazy river" which is 206 meters total length and the water slides offer two freefall rides, a black hole and a triple twist. The park is located only six kilometres from Chania. More details...
