We visited Crete not really knowing what to expect. Mainly we went to Crete to see the palace of Knossos and thats about it. What we found was a stunning island with friendly people, we enjoyed it so much that we hope to visit again soon.
We had booked the Hotel Anastasia, a fairly quiet hotel in Stalis, which was again, a fairly quiet resort, but plenty to see and do with the most beautiful beach. The resort of Malia was close for those wanting a bit more night life than Stalis had to offer.
Our first trip was to Knossos which we did on the local buses, much cheaper than the coach trip offered to us! Considering we went in August, it was uncrowded. A little hot though, (make sure you take a hat offering protection for the children in the exposed Knossos).
If you go with children there are 2 really good water parks, we visited Water City which I believe is the larger of the 2. We had a daunting 7 and a half hours there, but this passed so quickly the children were disapointed when it was time to leave.
We hired a car for 2 days, which is something I would tell anyone to do. We probably could have done with more time with the car, but as we were only there for a week we had so much on our agenda, 2 days was all we could manage.
A trip up to the Lassithi Plain is a must if you vist Crete. The roads are tricky and scary, but fun all the same! The plateau is a breathtaking oasis in the dryness of the Cretan mountains. The Diktean Cave which is the (supposed!) birthplace of the Greek god Zeus is here too. A walk up the rocky hillside takes you to the cave where you have the most fantastic view of the plateau in all its glory.
After climbing back down, the road goes all the way round the plain passing through delightful greek villages with old men sitting waving to all the passers by and old ladys on donkeys.
We thoroughly enjoyed Crete, but there is so much more to do (if you like exploring) that you really need more than the week that we had there.
