Crete in a nutshell
Why fly to Crete

Fly to CreteCrete is one of the biggest holiday destinations year in year out, and especially so for the summer. The island of Crete is steeped in history and tradition but also very welcoming and geared up for the tourist industry.

If you want to see the real side of Greece and Crete then take a visit to
Sfakia, Sitia, Plakias or Loutro where the effects of the tourist trade can hardly be seen.  These villages and towns are what people are starting to seek out when taking holidays now just to experience the real side of Greece.


If your just thinking of taking a holiday to Crete for the amazing beaches and buzzing nightlife then there are plenty of resorts that cater for your every need.  If you want to party hard for 2 weeks of the year then try the non-stop party resort of Malia.  If your looking for nice beach side resorts to take your family then try Stalis, Elounda, Rethymnon, Agios Nikolaos or Kokkini Hani.  These resorts have some excellent hotels and cater well for tourists from all over the world.  


Of course there are many more resorts to visit in Crete and many more sights to see, so its recommended booking cheap flight deals or flights to Crete, pick a resort that’s right for you and come visit Crete for a week or a fortnight.


Crete is one of the hottest destinations for this summer and direct flights to Crete usually take just 4 hours from the UK and Ireland and 3 ½ hours from most of Europe.  The transfer time to most resorts from each airport varies but should take no longer than an hour and a half.

Getting to your resort
Transfers to your hotel and taxi prices

ResorthoppaIf you are not booking a package holiday and want to save as much as you can then you need to be considering the range of private transfer companies that are cropping up.  For your information we can provide the average cost of taxi transfers if you really want to do your own thing and know where you are going but we would highly recommend using a private transfer company.

As we regularly fly from island to island we use a company called
resorthoppa.com who are the leading provider for low-cost shuttle and private transfers worldwide.  Booking with resorthoppa.com is very simple and you tell them where you are staying and an email confirmation is emailed to you within minutes and the prices are quite reasonable.


When you arrive in Heraklion or Chania airport, you collect your luggage, find the
resorthoppa.com representative who are normally straight outside the arrivals door, they all speak perfect English and direct you to your coach which has an English speaking driver and once everyone is ready your off to your resort.

When you arrive in Crete you are normally provided with a guide to the sights of Crete and the cost of some excursions with
resorthoppa.com which can be very useful if you haven't visited the island before.
