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
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.
