About Crete

Crete is the largest and most populous island in Greece, situated in the Mediterranean Sea, slightly southeast of the mainland

Known for its varied landscapes comprising fertile valleys, stunning beaches and the famous White Mountains found alongside idyllic harbours and sleepy villages, Crete has beautiful backdrops around every corner.

Numerous time-honoured traditions remain fundamental to Cretan culture, including Easter feasts, playing stringed instruments called ‘lyra’ and performing spectacular local dances. Some Greeks even say Crete could be its own country due to its diverse terrain and the unique way of life.

There are many domestic ferry routes departing the mainland and surrounding archipelagos in the Aegean Sea, arriving at the five Cretan ports on the north coast, including the capital, Heraklion. These sailings have varying journey times and are run by multiple operators, so there’s ample choice when it comes to reaching Crete by ferry.
