Many visitors have fallen in love with Crete for its beautiful scenery, relaxing atmosphere, and cultural offerings. If you’re a first-time visitor to the largest Greek island, you’ll find many sights and unique experiences to enjoy, and it’s hard to go wrong when planning your trip. Just sitting at Hotel Esplanade and taking in the gorgeous view and calming atmosphere can make the trip feel worthwhile. However, here are a few things to keep in mind to make sure that you fully enjoy your visit.
For some people, the best part of a vacation is breaking away from schedules and planning, and enjoying the feeling of being spontaneous and free. However, a little forethought will make your vacation run much more smoothly. There are many archaeological sites and museums on Crete, and geography, wildlife, and climate vary significantly over the 3,000 square miles the island covers. Deciding what you would most like to see beforehand, and drawing up some kind of itinerary with a travel plan for each day and a Crete hotel to end at each night, will help you ensure that you don’t miss anything.
Don’t limit yourself.
If you normally love to spend your vacations relaxing on a beach, or visiting cultural sites, or doing one particular thing, Crete may be a great place for you to break the mold. The island has much to offer, including ruins, diverse wildlife, delicious Mediterranean food, and festivals. Sticking to your established travel habits might make you miss out on some of the things that truly make the island memorable and exciting.
Leave time to relax.
With all of that said, it can be hard to fully enjoy a vacation when you’re constantly feeling rushed and trying to keep to a tight schedule to squeeze the most out of your time. Try to leave some room to recover, explore new options or adventures that you might stumble across, and just enjoy the atmosphere. Find a nice Crete hotel by the sea where you can unwind and take in the beautiful view, or spend some time in a village at a tavern or coffee shop.
Crete has proven to be an exciting yet restful place for many travelers. You’re sure to be enchanted by your visit there if you take the time to plan a well-balanced trip that will let you experience a little of everything Crete has to offer while still relaxing and recovering from your day-to-day life.
