Holidays to Skaleta
On Crete's northern coast, the holiday village of Skaleta offers sun drenched sands and turquoise sea, not far from the historical city of Rethymno. With little in the way of nightlife, and a beachfront well equipped with resorts and restaurants, a stay here is a quiet, relaxing escape from the crowds. But with watersports aplenty, ancient caves and relics nearby and delicious local food on tap, there's plenty to drag you away from the sunbed.
Being on the north coast, Skaleta is exposed to wind making the wavy sea a swimming spot popular with nature lovers.
Part-sandy, part-rocky, Stavromenos beach caters to families and couples, well organised with sunloungers and umbrellas.
Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon
A collection of Neolithic and Minoan artifacts including sculptures and jewellery provides a gateway to the area's past.
Fortress of Rethymno Fortezza
A Venetian fortress stands high on the hill of Paleokastra, an iconic trademark of Rethymno situated 12 kilometres away.
If you want a close look at marine life from the safety of land, head to the aquarium in Gouves for its diverse species.
Take a trip to one of Greece's most important caves spanning 3,000 square meters, inhabited in the early Minoan times.
With one of the world's healthiest diets focusing on oils, fish, fruit and vegetables, it's ideal for a natural detox.
Lightly soaked barley rusk topped with fresh tomato and sheep or goat's milk cheese, dusted with herbs is a favourite.
For a night on the town, the nearby Rethymno has a broader variety of bars and clubs that cater to the party seekers.
You'll find traditional nights at tavernas mean lively local music with flowing wine, as you link arms to Greek dances.
