 Crete with Kids

The incredible island of Crete has so much to offer to travelling families and it is often voted one of the most popular and safe destinations for family holidays. Crete is the biggest island of Greece known for its rich culture and amazing scenery. You will discover stunning sunny beaches with crystal clear waters, rocky coves in idyllic landscapes, endless groves, delicious food and of course, the unsurpassed Cretan hospitality.

If you are a fan of underwater exploration, and your children are old enough, you can discover the gorgeous underwater world of Crete through scuba diving courses. 

You can also enjoy sea kayaking on the south coast.  Crete also offers plenty of surfing opportunities – wind surfing, paddle surfing and kite surfing – in locations including Elafonisi, Falassarna, Agia Marina, Plakias, Amoudara and Ierapetra.

Water Parks: Acqua Plus is by far the most popular water park on the island of Crete and the first in the Balkan region! It is situated 5 km from Hersonissos and only 30 km from Heraklion city.  This aquatic park is a “fun land” full of fascinating aquatic games, especially created for you and your kids to play in the water in a variety of ways!
