Holidays to Rethymnon
Sometimes referred to as 'Rethymno', this ancient Minoan city on the north coast of Crete has over 20 stunning and unique beaches under an hour's drive away, with its own golden sandy seafront on the doorstep. The town, dominated by the imposing Fortezza Castle, offers a quaint old harbour alongside a mixture of local tavernas and international hotels. A perfect place for families and couples looking to get the most from the island.
The town beachfront is long and wide, with darker, slightly pebbly, sands. It's a great stretch for collecting shells.
The remote Souda Beach on the south coast may be 43km away, but its golden sand and superb views makes it worth a trip.
Heraklion Archaeological Museum
The exhibits in this incredible museum span over 5000 years, and showcase Minoan and ancient Roman artefacts.
Once the Minoan capital of Crete, Knossos is an impressive archaeological site that's well worth exploring.

The Rock Cafe pulls in alternatives types from all over the island. It's in Palekastro near Vai beach and Sitia town.
Head to the Old Town to try Metropolis Musiclub or The Dome. Both great spots for dancing the night away.
