As a family we love a beach holiday. Exploring, finding hidden beach coves and quiet undiscovered sandy shores along the coast is something we all love to do. Between that and eating in good restaurants. Beaches are the first thing we Google. So, I thought I would share our 10 best beaches to visit in Crete. And if you want to see more photo’s drop over to Insta as I have saved highlights from our trip and dropped lots of photos on my grid.
Since it is Greece’s largest island, Summer is obviously its busiest season, yet somehow it didn’t feel like that at all. In part that was because of the pandemic but also because there are so many villages to explore. So many beaches. And if you are prepared to be up and out super early, I can say that most places were not nearly as busy as I had expected.
I would personally recommend hiring a car, explore and go off the beaten track. Beaches in Rethynmo were much busier than those you had to drive out to. Although, driving in Greece isn’t for the faint hearted – you must have your wits about you and be prepared for some pretty treacherous roads. With some incredible views, and absolutely worth it for that alone. I have never seen views like it. Incredible Crete.

And that’s our 10 best beaches to visit in Crete. We visited Greece in August 2021 during Covid-19. It was wonderful to experience travel again and feel grateful for having the opportunity to travel. Do let me know if you visit one and any recommendations you might have.
