Tips & Tricks for Crete

3 Most important tips  in Crete

Traveling in Crete – practical tips short  guide

  1. Best Time to Visit: The best time to visit Crete is during the shoulder seasons of spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October). The weather is pleasant, and the tourist crowds are smaller compared to the peak summer months.
  2. Getting There: Crete has two main airports: Heraklion Airport (HER) and Chania Airport (CHQ). These airports have regular flights connecting them to major European cities. Alternatively, you can take a ferry from Athens or other Greek islands to Crete.
  3. Transportation: Renting a car   is highly recommended to explore Crete at your own pace. The island has an extensive road network, and having a car gives you the flexibility to visit remote villages and beautiful beaches. Public buses are available but may have limited schedules, especially in rural areas.

1.Driving on the national road :  The right hand lane, separated from the main highway by a continuous white line, is not only for stopping in an emergency. It’s used as an extra traffic lane so, when you see a car , especially  Bus  approaching fast from behind,  continue to drive OVER  the white line . So all traffic doesnt accumulate  behind  you !

2.Dont trust always your GPS: Driving to small villages GPS sometimes shows the shorter  road but you may find your selves in remoted  paths without any signs or twisted narrow roads in the country fields !

3. Sometimes  villages and locations  bear double names : One official and the other as it called locally. So the town of Kissamos is known as Kasteli.

4.Very often you see double locality name in road panels pointing  in opposite directions !  Do not worry,  soon or later you will drive to this location..
