5 Days in the East of Crete, e-Book

Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that an average of 300 days of sunshine a year means more chances to relax on the sand. As an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.

Firstly, there's the language barrier, which can make it difficult to ask directions on back roads, how do you know what sights and villages you should be looking for? And, what is the difference between and Zakros, Kato Zakros and Faragi Zakrou?

With the 5 Days in the East of Crete, you won't miss any of the historic sites, interesting towns and blissful beaches. This route will show you the relaxed tavernas and traditional food of Crete, for everyday eating and everyday pleasure.

The stunning mountains and coastlines of Crete will be at your fingertips –

  • Experience mountain hospitality and local food in Tzermiado

  • Enjoy the views, nature and green heart of the Lasithi Plateau

  • Use our accommodation tips in Elounda

  • Relish in the stylish lakeside boulevard and atmosphere of Agios Nikolaos

  • See the inland route to Kato Zakros and the historic Gorge of the Dead
