Quad biking in the mountains, boat trip to Balos Lagoon. Avli Taverna in Hersonisos for the best home cooked food in Crete

Rethymon, knossos Palace, spinalonga Island, heraklion archaeology museum and Malia Palace ruins are all worth visiting if you are interested in history.

Score marked down only due to baby car seat. It wasn’t great, the cover didn’t fit over the plastic base so it was very hot when our son sat in the seat and almost covered his neck and head. I mentioned this when dropping off the seat. We had the rental for 2 weeks. The car park as very good and the overall service was good. Only negative was noting that we needed an IDP but we didn’t. I emailed a week before to check but didn’t get a response until 2 days after our arrival. Overall good though

Many more asphalt minor roads now than maps show. Don't just stick to beaches, use improved raods to visit remote villages and countryside.

Crete is a fantastic Greek Island, great places to visit and something for everyone. Rethemo and Chaina up North and Agia Gallini and Hora Sfakion in the South, restaurants and local food are delicious. Historical site are very interesting too. The beaches and sea are very clean and clear, wonderful. Brilliant.

Mochos is a beautiful village in the hills. Zeus cave on Lasithi Plateau worth a visit as is Milatos for a quiet sandy beach within the harbour and lots of choice of restaurants.
