Crete is a place of rare natural beauty. Its history is suffused with myths. It was here on Crete that the newborn Zeus first opened his eyes, and the pristine beauty of this heavenly island forever stayed in the young god's heart. It is no coincidence that Zeus would later carry away his beloved Europa to Crete, seeking seclusion in the Dikti Mountains, where the thousand-meter heights command a breathtaking view of the boundless stretch of sea below.
Crete is just as breathtaking today as it was thousands of years ago. The azure sea is just as pure as it was in antiquity. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom a long way from shore, even at depths of 40 meters or more.
The island's climate is the mildest in Europe. Even during the hottest time of year, the temperature rarely rises above 30°. Swimming season begins at the end of April and ends in mid-November. The island is also loved by the sun, which shines on Crete 340 days of the year.
You will breathe easily here, where the sea breeze and the rich mountain air meet to create the perfect combination, which is very beneficial for health. The island's pristine natural environment is protected by laws that curb industrial manufacturing, and Crete's beaches are marked by blue flags that are conferred in Europe only to locations meeting impeccable standards of environmental cleanness.
It is not only pleasurable, but also very safe to live and vacation on Crete. The crime rate on the island is one of the lowest in all of Europe. There is a strong tradition of respect for privacy and this is one of those rare places where the famous can forget about the paparazzi, hide away their evening gowns and tuxedos, and savour their peace and quiet. But of course there are also plenty of social activities to tempt the island's visitors. All it takes is a short trip to one of the towns for you to be able to enjoy lunch in a restaurant, shopping in the boutiques, or a night out at the dance clubs.
Its spellbinding natural beauty, the breath and whisper of the sea, monuments of ancient civilizations, and world famous Greek cuisine – all these things and more are waiting to be discovered on Crete. Anyone who has visited once will invariably wish to return to this magical place where, albeit in myths and legends, the gods once dwelled.
