The south-west corner of Crete, near Elafonisi has some beautiful natural beaches. Elafonisi beach itself is worth a visit but was very crowded, even in early September. Kedrodasos Beach and White Lake Beach are worth a visit. In the second half of our trip we stayed near Rethymno which was a great central location for day trips to many different places on the north and south coast and to Knossos and Heraklion. Highly recommend hiring a car. The drive to the south coast through the Kourtaliotiko Gorge is beautiful.

We loved all our trips, especially tympaki beach which is a long beach with very secluded areas for relaxing and privacy. We very much enjoyed the experience of balo beach which we did on a Sunday and it was not bust at all. The driver to all our trips were very pleasant and enjoyable, the views are amazing and the roads are safe and in very good condition. We loved every minute of it.

Bring a snorkel and flippers. The water is so clear and warm (even in late May) and the marine life usually impressive around the rocky edges of the many coves in Crete.

Plaka village - the most friendly locals, great food in the Tavernas. Elafonisi beach is looking a bit over visited. Need to find a quieter beach next time.

Driving in the cities can be quite stressful, with narrow and poorly maintained roads. Moving around between cities, we found it very helpful and convenient. Need to note that on the highways one should drive partially on the hard shoulder to allow cars to overtake, and to avoid head-on collisions with cars overtaking on the other side!
