Holidays to Nea Alikarnassos
Nea Alikarnassos is embraced by the warm Mediterranean on one frontier, and the Cretan capital Heraklion on the other. Its enviable sun-soaked location means it's all about relaxing on lazy beaches, exploring Heraklion's ancient history, and sampling Crete's gorgeous Greek cuisine. Heraklion is home to the legendary Palace of Knossos, a must-see ancient sight, while nearby Malia has one of Europe's wildest nightlife scenes.
There's sports, beach bars, and good swimming on offer on this string of golden resort beaches east of Nea Alikarnassos.
A 15 minute drive from Nea, this is a long stretch of sand popular with windsurfers thanks to its exposed position.
Dig in and discover more about prehistoric coins, statues from Asklepieion, beautiful mosaics and pottery.
White Stone Cave
Hidden from the public eye, this preserved cave has been named one of the oldest and important monuments in Kos.
Families can enjoy hours of fun with these lazy rivers, giant slides and numerous restaurants.
Catch a movie under the stars in the open-air cinema, where you can enjoy a drink and snack or a choice of hot dishes.
Crete's local cheeses are often made of sheep or goat's milk - graviera, a hard cheese with a sweet flavour, is popular.
These wild greens are a true local delicacy on Crete. Similar to asparagus with a bitter flavour, and often boiled.
Paleteia Eleftheria Lions Square
Bars and cafes around these Heraklion squares kick off the night and serve as a meeting place for groups of partygoers.
Nea's noisy neighbour, Malia's Beach Road is notorious for its die-hard partygoers, shots, fishbowls, and foam parties.
