Award-winning beaches like Balos Lagoon and Elafonissi, gorgeous Samara National Park with its mountains and waterfalls, and some of the best dive sites in Europe, there really is something for everyone.

Add friendly locals, a great climate, and delicious local cuisine - there are so many good reasons to choose Crete vacation packages.

When should you book a vacation package to Crete?

Temperatures range from 80 to 84°F between May and September and all of the island's main attractions are open. Look for Crete package deals from April to June; the mercury reaches around 68°F and beaches and restaurants aren't quite as busy. Or, visit from September to February for a little winter sunshine. You might book Crete trips during March to catch the Rethymno Carnival, one of the island's biggest events. Although it's the most expensive time to visit, you'll still be able to find cheap Crete travel deals.
