Holidays to Gerani (Rethymnon)
Clear skies and seas, beautiful scenery and friendly locals welcome visitors to Gerani, a tiny community of less than 700 residents on Crete’s northern coast. It was once occupied by the Ottomans, but these days is more likely to be invaded by tourists looking for a relaxing break. Thanks to the nearby main road, Gerani has excellent links, both inland and along the coast in both directions, including the large town of Rethymnon.
Located in a cove, the beach is covered with pebbles. Beneath the nearby bridge lies a taverna in a picturesque setting.
A sandy beach stretching several kilometres. Those who want peace and quiet can choose an area without facilities.
Vederi and Prines
These 2 tiny villages have been declared ‘preservable traditional settlements’ due to their traditional style.
A local flea market takes place every week in the nearby village of Spili, where traditional artefacts can be picked up.
This inland village is one of the most scenic in the region. The adventurous may enjoy a trek up Mount Idi.
Book a trip to Rethymnon to tour the waters off the northern coast. Those not interested in fishing can swim instead.
There's a wide variety available, from myzithra, a whey cheese like ricotta, to xinomyzithra, which has a tangy taste.
While many Greek pies are huge, gut-busting affairs, many of those available on Crete are small and crisp.
Rockas Beach Bar
Drinks are available all day long, and the menu is impressive too. Watch out for the venue’s legendary burgers.
Punch Bowl Irish Bar
Genari is a quiet place, so those looking for a lively night out should take a taxi to Rethymnon.
