Crete in October

While I was strolling the streets of Paris at the end of September, an invitation to join a group of journalists for a press trip in Crete organized by the Greek Tourism board in Vienna landed in my inbox. Needless to say, I jumped in joy! I can’t hide my love for Paris, and at the same time, I can’t hide my love for the Greek islands as well…

What I am going to say right now may sound strange but this was an invitation I was expecting! Why? Because for the past 2 years, I had the chance to visit Crete in October and somehow this trip became a habit that I wanted to repeat every October.

Not bad at all, if you think that in many parts of Europe it starts getting quite chilly and you hop on a plane with Aegean airlines, that brings you to a place where the sky is blue, sun shine bright, and you can still wear sandals and summer dresses and go to the beach! Who wouldn’t accept this invitation, right?

Apart from the fact that in Crete, summer lasts longer, this island has so many things to offer to visitors year around.

Below, you will find a list with things to do, where to eat, and places to visit in Crete. Those are the things we did during the press trip and hopefully they are a great source of information or source of rough itinerary for you when you start planning your next travel to Crete.

I would like to point this out, that Crete is a place to visit year round and not only in summer because of its mild climate and because there are plenty of activities that you can do, apart from going to the beach. Check out the flights of Aegean Airlines that flies you to Crete here!

During the press trip, we did many great things but I think that the best part was kept for the end: horse riding by the beach (thank you Maria Lavdaki for organising this extra activity for me)! Our press trip ended in the most beautiful way and I was the happiest!

Thanks to the Greek Tourism Board, Aegean Airlines, and Region of Crete for making this happen! Very grateful to be invited to join!

Crete has never been my favourite Greek island. What I never liked about it is that Crete is a big island. In Crete you simply lose the sense of being on an island. I guess, I am more a small island type of person.

But Crete island has a lot to offer. Culture, sightseeing attractions, sandy beaches, scenic countryside. Plus, it has two international convenient airports (Chania and Heraklio) where you can find the best flight connections to many European cities.

My friend’s wedding though was a very good reason to visit Crete once again, the last weekend of August. I am glad that I had the chance to spend my holidays in Crete one more time, to discover this island with a different point of view, as the more we travel, the better traveler we become, we learn to appreciate things differently and we mature through this process.

My best Chania travel tips: 

• Go to Pallas for breakfast.

• Visit Sketi Glika for something sweet.

• For exciting views over Chania go to Koukouvaya.

• For dinner and the best traditional Cretan Ntako go to Mesostrato.

Crete is undoubtedly beautiful. Remember that you need time and a car to discover its beauties. Oh my gosh, how nice it would be to be there right now!
