Crete is the perfect island destination when you want more than just a holiday under the sun. Crete is one of the most visited places in all of Greece and it’s not hard to see why. Greece’s largest island has it all, the natural beauty of its mountains and beaches, a vibrant culture and a long and storied history. You could spend weeks, months even, exploring this wonderful island and always find something new to discover. Crete caters to every category of travellers, so whether you desire a deluxe private villa, a large luxurious resort or a cozy bed and breakfast, you will find the perfect accommodation to suit your needs.

There are two international airports in Crete. The larger one is Heraklion International Airport and the smaller is Chania International Airport. No matter which Crete airport you fly into, hoppa offers friendly and reliable Crete transfers to wherever your holiday takes you.

Crete seems to have been perfectly placed in the Mediterranean Sea between Europe and Africa, where it enjoys a mild climate and year-round sunshine. Because of these ideal conditions, Crete has been an attractive place to settle throughout history. The Minoans were the first, their advanced civilization flourished here from 2600 BC to 1400 BC. There are several impressive Minoan archaeological sites scattered around Crete. The most famous is the Palace of Knossos, which is one of Crete’s biggest draws. You will feel in awe of the Minoan’s artistry and sophistication as you explore the maze of massive columns and the beautiful frescoes.

The capital city of Heraklion houses two fascinating museums; the Heraklion Archaeological Museum and the Historical Museum of Crete, for those who want to learn more about Crete’s interesting history. While you are in Heraklion, immerse yourself in Cretan culture by enjoying Cretan music, dance and food during one of the city’s cultural events that are held throughout the year.

A trip to the old Venetian city of Chania (Hania) reminds you that Crete isn’t all ancient artifacts. A blend of both Venetian and Ottoman architecture make Chania both exotic and evocative. Wine and dine at one of the many elegant al fresco restaurants in Chania and sample delicious Cretan cheeses and other Cretan mezze.

At the very tip of Crete is the stunning Palm Beach of Vai. It is the most popular beach on the island and features the largest natural palm forest in Europe. Vai offers visitors what everyone loves about the Greek Islands, crystal-blue sea, matched with brilliant-white soft sand. No holiday to Crete would be complete without a swim in these azure waters.
