The Top Places to Visit in Crete in October

October holidays in Crete are a great time to explore with fewer crowds than in the peak season. Whether you're after crystal clear waters to swim in or a little culture, Crete has something for everyone.

  • 1. Balos Lagoon

    In the west of the island, Balos Lagoon is rightly famous for the beauty of its white-sand beaches and the breathtaking colour of its shallow turquoise waters. A true Cretan paradise.

  • 2. Palace of Knossos

    This is the one must-see among the many cultural attractions of Crete. The Palace of Knossos is a vivid, living reminder of the island's ancient power. The palace was the lavish home of royalty with more than 1,000 rooms. A visit is an unforgettable experience.

  • 3. Cretaquarium

    This ultra-modern aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, is home to well over 250 species of marine life. There are more than 60 tanks, which offer the illusion of panoramic under-sea viewing. There's something here for visitors of all ages.

  • 4. Samaria Gorge

    For a spectacular day out, take a hike on part of the 16km route along the bottom of this natural wonder. Above, the soaring cliffs are less than a few hundred metres apart in places.

  • 5. Rethymno

    The Old Town of Rethymno hosts a series of atmospheric narrow streets with a surprise at every corner. Some buildings speak of Venice, others of the old Turkish-Ottoman empire. Rethymno rewards an aimless wonder with essential stops at any of the cafés.
