The Crete region
We would consider Chania a must visit with its Venetian Port lined with its many tavernas which can be enjoyed during the daytime or evening. This ancient bustling town with charming back alleys has many attractions including museums, an indoor market, cobbled streets and is richly steeped in history.
The ancient city of Aptera (closed on Mondays ) is located just south of Kalami on the Chania on an elevation with spectacular views of Souda Bay. The site is still being excavated but there is still plenty to see, with the ruins of the city of Aptera and Turkish fortress.
Kourans and Lake Kournas. Lake kournas is the only natural freshwater lake on Crete. It covers a total of area of some 15 acres and has a depth of 25 metres. The village of Kournas is beautifully set above the lake on a mountain in the shape of a horseshoe. It has 3 historic churches and is well know for its pottery.
Elafonissi Beach - on the far west corner of Crete, this is known as the Caribbean of Crete and has pinkish sand and an island you can wade out to.
Knossos Palace and Heraklion Archaeological Museum - 4000 year old relics of a Minoan civilization redeemed almost to its former glory and Museum witch holds the majority of the ancient artifacts found over the year on Crete and all the original pieces from Knossos.
Samaria Gorge - Europe's longest gorge at 11 miles/16km long. Excellent for those of you who enjoy walking.
Gramvousa Island and Balos Lagoon - Crystal clear jade waters and pale white sands.
