    Eating a plate of Dakos while gazing into the blue Aegean Sea looks like a slice of heaven. I can almost taste those ripe tomatoes and smell the salt in the air. Crete looks absolutely amazing.

    I recently visited Athens and I’m already in love with Greece. I’m indeed planning a couple more trips to Greece. I am definitely considering Crete but haven’t decided yet. It does look like good option, going by your post.
    Indeed a history buff here! Spinalonga Island looks incredible too. Thanks for this guide!

    Your article brought back great memories of our visit to Crete and where we stayed in Elounda over 30 years ago. I would love to return some day and see how much it has changed. We visited Spinalonga, had great meals along the Elounda waterfront and visited the windmills high up in the hills (although many of their sails had blown off over the years).

    I went to Crete many years ago and still have fond memories of the Greek island. I definitely remember trying stifado, it’s delicious! I’d love to return to see Loutro and that fabulous Spinalonga Island. You mentioned some great places to see.

    Crete looks amazing. I’d love to do some of the long walks, particularly being able to swim midway through – that’s always a fun thing to do. And the food, I think Greece has some of the best food in Europe – completely underrated.

    Crete seems to have everything a traveler can ask for. History, Nature, Cuisine, so many experiences at one place. Personally would prefer to visit the historical sites and of course soak in the spectacular natural beauty all around. Loutro sounds like a really enchanting village and hoping it retains its pristine character.

      Indeed, it does, Sandy. I absolutely loved the historical sites too and Loutro is a must-visit too!

    I have never been to Crete and your article is giving me consideration to add this to my travel bucket list. I must start saving for my airline ticket for Crete! Maybe would be lovely to visit during summer season.

    Wow, there are so many beautiful things to do in Crete. I missed Crete during my Greece visit but now I have to plan for Crete. I would love to check out some clubs in Iráklio Old Town. Day trip to Gorge of the Dead must be a beautiful thing to do here.
