Places To Stay, Crete Island
The island of Crete, presents a wide range of alternatives to people that prefer camping to the more traditional hotel style of tourism.
There is something extremely appealing about sleeping under an open sky next to the sea, and waking up when the first rays of sun appear.
Technically , free camping is not allowed in Greece at all. In real life however, people will not bother you as long as you don't put your tent in crowded beaches, or next to hotels. Generally the best locations for free camping in the island are on the south coast. In some cases the locations we will be describing can be reached by bike or car, but more often than not you have to be prepared to walk a bit , or even take a boat. Rest assured however that the walk is worth it. You will be seeing places unspoiled by human touch, visited only by other campers or locals on their day to day work (fishermen etc.)
