first time in Crete

Really looking forward to coming out at the end of next week, we are staying just outside rethymnon and are wanting to see as much of crete as possible without spending hours driving around getting lost! We mainly love visiting different beaches (as opposed to hiking!) can you recommend beaches to go for the day to around the island - and whether it is better to drive or bus from Rethymnon? Also we are looking to stay for a night in another part for the island which has lovely beaches for a birthday surprise and relax, anyone any recommendations? Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome,

In the town of Rethymnon there is an endless sandy beach, that I'm sure you'll enjoy

There you can visit the Preveli palm tree beach at the south part of Rethymnon, it's an end of a river to the Lybian see where there are palm trees near the riverbed. Plakias has a fine beach too, so does the beach of Triopetra and Agios Pavlos.
