Head out into the beautiful countryside of Crete on horseback, taking in the sites as you go, or maybe gallop along the beautiful expanses of golden sand. You could perhaps even take a swim with the horses to cool off at the end of the day.
Visit traditional villages
The charming village of Vrissas in Western Crete is well known for the cafés and tavernas enjoying shade from the pine trees in the main square. With a backdrop of the White Mountains, many gorges and a nearby winery, it’s a lovely spot to visit. Anos Meros, situated in the foothills of the Kedros Mountains, is home to the Kaloeidans’ Monastery and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Or maybe explore the pretty coastal village of Agia Galini and enjoy the laidback atmosphere while admiring the view.
Enjoy the many boat trips on offer. There is something to suit every budget and taste, from private charters and fishing trips to moonlit cruises offering dinner. Or perhaps you would prefer a cruise to somewhere a little further afield, like the stunning island of Santorini, which rises majestically out of the sea and is famed for its white washed buildings with blue domed roofs perched high on the hill. Some even believe it is the Lost City of Atlantis.
Whether dining in a 600 year old taverna, like Knossos in Rethymnon which overlooks the harbour, or looking out over Chania and Soudha Bay from the stunning restaurant Nykterida, you’re sure to find a romantic spot to enjoy a romantic meal.
With all that Crete has to offer, it makes the perfect romantic getaway, whether you’re looking for a honeymoon or just a break away together away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
