Crete is Greece's largest island, with a total length of 160 miles and a coastline of over 650 miles. Also Europe's most southern part (island of Gavdos) with a great Mediterranean climate where the sun shines virtually all year round.
Crete is very mountainous and there are three main mountains: Lefka Ori in the west, Ida Ori in the central part of Crete (Psiloritis is 2454m high) and Dikti Ori (with the Lassthi plateau) more to the east.
It's no surprise that Crete is the most popular vacation destination in Greece. Large in size, a great climate, beautiful beaches, authentic villages, picturesque harbours, rich culture, and many archeological sites. Crete has is all!
Crete By Motorhome
The Island has so much to offer, but it is just too long and mountainous to see everything by making daytrips. Traveling every day for hundreds of kilometers is very exhausting and time consuming. And you also miss the best moments like a beautiful sunset or the quietness of a desolated beach at sunrise. So why not enjoy all the Island has to offer and travel around in a campervan? Take your time to travel along the quiet and beautiful places of the southern coast. Take a tour through the mountains, see places like Vianos, Anogia and Zaros. Go to the beautiful beach of Elafonisi, make a boat trip to Ballos.
Go to the unexpected and there you will find original Cretan hospitality. Small places do have surprisingly beautiful locations like small churches, breathtaking views, old kafenions (coffee shops) or a beautiful bay. Take your time and get out when you can to enjoy all the beauty. You’re on a vacation!
Feel free to go where you want to go, stay where you want to stay. Free camping is still allowed at most places. That makes your vacation a unique experience. Around the island are nice camping sites too.
All with electricity and sanitary facilities. Some even have a swimming pool. Of course you can switch easily between free and organized camping.
