Heraklion Lodging Dec 16

Heraklion city is a common busy and noisy town. It is the business, administrative and commercial center of the Prefecture and of the whole island, partly due to its large port. Even though Heraklion is not the ideal place for relaxation holidays it can offer many options to a traveler. First of all, you can find many lodging alternatives in a wide price range. In addition there are numerous restaurants, cafes and nightclubs where you can taste the local cuisine and enjoy the nightlife of this vivid city. Heraklion has many interesting places which you can visit, ranging from monuments of the Minoan civilization to Venetian castles and traditional markets. Heraklion is located in the north part of the island and its closest beach is Ammoudara.

Crete Lodging Dec 16

Crete Lodging offers a huge amount and variety of holiday accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. There’s a plentiful supply of cheap and cheerful pensions, camp sites and youth hostels geared to the needs of budget travellers and backpackers. Masses of mid-range hotels and apartments cater for the hordes of package holidaymakers who descend on the island each summer and you’ll also find a generous helping of top of the range deluxe hotels likely to strain even the healthiest of bank balances.

It’s risky to turn up on spec at any of the main tourist destinations without a reservation in July and August though you may strike lucky if you persevere and are prepared to take whatever’s offered. If you visit outside the most popular months (June to September) you’ll be able to get a discount of 50% or more on high season prices if you hunt around. But expect to pay top rates if you’re visiting at Christmas or Easter. Freelance camping on the beaches was common in the sixties but is now frowned on by the police and many of the islanders. There are plenty of well-equipped official camp sites dotted around the island’s coastline but many backpackers still take the risk of camping out in secluded spots. Breakfast is included in the room price at many of the island’s hotels and the more upmarket establishments lay on in-house entertainment such as weekly Cretan nights with traditional music and dancing.

Crete Lodging

Package Crete holiday accommodation is largely concentrated in the frantic seaside resorts of Hersonissos and Malia on the northern coast east of Iraklio. The beachfronts are lined with hotels of all standards but most are block booked by the tour operators months in advance. You’d be ill advised to pitch up in either resort in high season without a booking though you might find a last minute bed in Malia’s old town which has numerous rooms and cheap pensions geared towards independent travellers rather than package holiday tourists.

Golf in Crete Dec 16

The Crete Golf Club is situated at Hersonissos, near Heraklion, the capital of Crete, and it’s the first full 18-hole golf course to have been built on this beautiful Greek Island. The 6430-yard, par 71-desert style course has two loops of nine, which seamlessly blend into the existing landscape. The slopes, visible rocky ground, groundcover pants and absence of trees provide a character, which is easily identifiable as Crete.

Each hole has a selectlon of 4 tee beds, providing a challenge for all golfers whatever their standards. Where the scratch golfer will fInd the course a tough enough test from the back tee, the novice will find the forward tees more suited to their game. For the farways, we have selected Paspalum as the grass type. This requires the minimum amount of water whist providing the maximum drought resistance. Tifdwarf will be used on the greens where a finer turfgrass is needed.

The course also comes with the full range of practice facilities for novice golfers, tourists and golf club members. ThiS includes a double- ended covered driving range with practice bunkers, short game area and practice putting green. There is also a second put- ting green adjacent to the first tee.

Crete Golfing Dec 16

The Crete Golfing club is a marvellous new addition to Europe’s rich reservoir of courses and  will soon be regarded as one of the finest tests in the whole of the southern Mediterranean.  The new Bob Hunt masterpiece, is best described as a desert golf course hewn out of rolling landscape little more than half an hour from the international airport of Heraklion. It boasts a series of memorable holes that will test every aspect of a golfer’s repertoire and offers stunning views over mountainous landscape that has hardly changed since the Minoan era back in 2600 to 1100 BC.

The views on the back nine are incomparable and so is the service offered to visitors. Staff can supply a fine selection of quality hire clubs. They will go out of their way to fix up games for single golfers and can even arrange transportation as and when required. The standard of service at Crete Golfing Club is exemplary and adds a great deal to what is already a special experience.

Crete Entertainment Dec 04

Crete’s evening entertainment scene is in keeping with its high profile as a popular holiday destination. Night-owls can happily spend the best part of their days doing nothing in preparation for a night of hedonism, while those preferring to get up early and head out sightseeing can pursue the quieter side of the island’s night scene. Whatever your background, you should find something to keep you busy once the sun’s gone down.


Crete Entertainment

Crete nightlife is a busy affair and all four of the main resort areas have their fair share of popular nightspots. There are venues to cater to most tastes and you can opt for either a wild or a sedate night, whichever best suits your requirements.  In Heraklion, much of the action is focused around the port of Heraklion Town. while other popular venues can be found at resorts such as Limenas Hersonissou.

In the Chania region, head for Chania Town, Platanias and Paleohora; in Rethymno head for Rethymno Town, Agia Galini and Plakias; and in Lassithi, head for Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Sitia, Makrigialos, Ierapetra and Neapolis. If you’re a young party-animal then the island’s nightclubs will suit you down to the ground, with their beyond-dawn closing times  Whereas, if you are of the older crowd, then the many restaurants and tavernas with live music are ideal venues for a pleasant evening.

Crete Nightlife Dec 04

Fortunately, the space on the small island of Crete can accommodate two types of travelers. There are travelers who arrive in Crete and whose primary goal is detoxification. On the contrary, there are travelers who arrive in Crete and wonder, "Where’s the party?"

There are endless stretches of nightlife in Crete. Travelers affectionately refer to it as one of the Greek "party islands." Tavernas, bars, nightclubs, lounges, and discos comprise the main attractions.  Unlike the uptight structure in many urban, American venues, most of the Cretan nightlife is casual and a place to seriously unwind.

Crete Nightlife

Although every prefecture maintains some type of nightlife activity, Heraklion and Agios Nikloas are more well-known and crowded areas. Malia and Hersonissos also offer memorable evenings around every corner after dark. This kind of random exploration affords the most excitement.
