Crete island is the largest greek island of Greece, located in the southern side of the Aegean Sea. Among the most popular holiday destinations of the country, Crete island is visited by millions of tourists every summer. However, despite the tourist development in some places, Crete Greece also keeps intact its unique character. Its long history has left evident marks on the greek island: Minoan palaces, Venetian towns, Medieval Castles, Ottoman mosques and Byzantine monasteries constitute the most important sightseeing. And of course the most distinctive characteristic of the island are the beaches: organized or secluded, sandy or pebbled, all beaches are magnificent.
