East Crete by Bus, 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.

The local and regional bus services in Crete are run by regional collectives known as Kino Tamio Eispraxeon Leoforon or KTEL.

The coaches you climb on board as you explore the large island of Crete are owned by the driver and his family.

We have always found that this creates a real pride of ownership and excellent service from Cretan coaches. Of course match family pride with Cretan pride and you get superior results!

With the 10 Days in the East of Crete by Bus, 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 towns, bays and coastlines of Crete will be laid out before you
  • Experience wide open scenery, a palm forest and remote coastal villages in eastern Crete
  • Enjoy the beaches, nature and intrigue of Spinalonga Island
  • Save money with our accommodation tips in Lasithi
  • Explore the lake, harbour and beaches of the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos
  • See how to swim near Chrissi Island by boat
  • Divine Beaches! Azure, turquoise, crystal clear waters in the east of Crete
  • Extend your trip by saving money with bus travel and flexible options
