never been to crete before and looking for somewhere hot in early october to visit. we're told the south coast would be warmer which sounds about right.
we'd be looking at staying for 10 days, with a car for maybe 4 of those, booked through a friendly local company rather than the big boys. we definitely want a lovely sandy beach within walking distance, the shallower, sandier adn more picturesque the better, and a nice selection of bars/restaurants but not too busy. places we've enjoyed so far on the islands are pefkos (rhodes), tsilivi (zante) altho thats probably a bit too busy for us now, svoronata (kefalonia) and recently had a lovely break at tigaki (kos). all of these beaches were ideal for us and are what we'd look for in crete.
not as important, but again we're talking ideally, would be somewhere that we could book through jet2, as we have always had good experiences with them, and not so good experiences with thomson/TC/olympic.
thanks for any advice you can give us.Edited: 20 May 2018, 19:59
