Crete, occasionally spelled "Krete" in English, is the largest of the Greek islands and is in the Mediterranean Sea between the Sea of Crete and the Libyan Sea, south of the Peloponnese. Crete is approximately 260 km long and 60 km wide. Crete consists of four prefectures: Chania, Rethimno, Heraklion and Lasithi. If there was a beauty contest for Greek islands, Crete would surely be among the favorites. Heraklion (a.k.a. Iraklion or Candia) is the largest city and capital. Chania is another major travel destination. Chersonissos is a blissful harbour town in winter, party capital of Crete in summer. Malia is a crowded tourist mecca popular mostly with young (especially British) travelers. Paleochora is a small resort village on southwest coast. Travel to the Minoan archaeological sites of Knossos, Phaistos, Gournia and Mallia. Plakias is a small, quiet resort on the South coast of Crete. It has a magnificent beach and is backdropped by stunning mountainous scenery that offers good walking. Elafonisi is a small beach on the southwestern tip of Crete.

It only has two places to stay and is an excellent location to spend the day at the beach. The language used in Crete is Greek, although in main cities and touristic areas people have no problem understanding English. Even in small villages you usually have no problem for basic things like shopping or eating. Tourism is the basis of the Cretan economy. The island is partly very green despite only having around 60 days of rain per year. Crete was the center of the Minoan civilization, a sophisticated Bronze Age culture: the island bears witness to their achievements in the form of palaces, tombs and sacred sites. Towards the end of the Late Bronze Age, the Minoans were superseded by Mycenaeans from the Greek mainland. Thereafter, Crete very much followed in the classical mainstream of Greece and - much later - Rome. The island has three significant airports, Nikos Kazantzakis at Heraklion, the military airport Daskalogiannis at Chania and a new public airport in Sitia. Chania airport is much smaller and far less busy than Heraklion airport. Sitia airport serves currently only a small number of domestic flights, mainly to/from Athens. There are long term plans to replace Heraklion airport, which is too close to the city, by a new inland airport at Kasteli, southeast of Heraklion. Crete has many ferry connections for example: You can go from Pireaus to Heraklion with Minoan Lines, to Chania with ANEK Lines or Hellenic Seaways, to Ayios Nikolaos and Sitia with LANE Lines. LANE also operates routes from Ayios Nikolaos/Sitia to Rhodes and other greek islands.
