An elegant Cretan stay at five-star village-style resort near golden sands, inc. flights, transfers and half-board

Crete is full of beautiful beaches, ancient Minoan historic sites, such as Knossos and Phaestos, and charming villages to explore. See it all from the five-star Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa, a village-style resort accessed by stone pathways that meander through herb-strewn gardens. Spend days floating dreamily in the free-form main pool, landscaped with boulders, with a front row seat to the Mediterranean.

You're 35 kilometres away from the historic port town of Heraklion, where you can visit its fascinating archaeological museum. The coastline here can be rocky in places, but the sandy beach slopes gently into the sea, making it ideal for swimming, and there is no shortage of scuba-diving schools if you fancy exploring the colourful corals and tropical marine life.

Highlights of Crete

If you were to name everything you would like to find in your ideal sun holiday destination, the chances of Crete ticking every last box are quite high. For those who love enjoying sumptuous meals made with fresh local produce, picture-perfect Greek restaurants serving mouthwatering Mediterranean-enthused food including olives, feta cheese, lamb, yoghurt, and vegetables can be found in almost every town and village.

For those who travel abroad to learn more about the history and culture of new places, Crete is home to a number of notable landmarks, including the Heraklion Archaeological Museum or the impressive site of Knossos that dates back to the Bronze Age.

Last but not least, for those who simply wish to be surrounded by areas of pure natural beauty, Crete’s magnificent landscapes vary from pristinely-kept sandy beaches along every coast to the spectacular Samariá Gorge which is a fantastic environmental wonder.
