Top Travel Tips for Rethymnon, Crete

Away from Crete’s 18-30 hotspot of Malia, the island has several beautiful old towns, including Rethymnon. Situated almost exactly equidistant between Heraklion and Chania airport, the hour’s journey places you centrally in this beautiful north coast town with plenty of scope to explore.

Things to Do

Rethymnon Beach

The beaches are what draws many a visitor to Crete, and Rethmynon boasts golden sand as far as the eye can see. You’ll find endless sunbed companies all neatly arranged, and, as is becoming the norm these days, many with changing huts, Wi-Fi and even waiter service to make your stay even more relaxing.

Their ‘always on tour’ motto is probably only surpassed by Xtra Mile label-mate Frank Turner, who they’ve supported many times, and whose influence is easy to see. With tours alongside US heavyweights Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy’s also under their belt, it’s not hard to see how they’ve perfectly honed the sound of self-proclaimed ‘trad-folk-punk’.

Last Night’s TV: Broadchurch

ITV, 9pm

Just before the finale of the first series of Broadchurch producer Richard Strokes tweeted to ‘watch to the very, very end’. Viewers expected one final twist in an already incredible series, but what they got – an end-of-credits message proclaiming “Broadchurch Will Return” – divided fans.

From the very beginning Broadchurch was sold as a drama about community life, centred around a murder and its domino effect, rather than a basic whodunit.
