Crete tourist guide

The best Polish website dedicated to the Greek island Crete and to a small extent of continental Greece. You will find useful information related to visiting Crete that goes beyond the offer of optional tours. On the website you will also find descriptions of the most interesting places that we visited by visiting this largest Greek island. The content complements the current news, photographs and recipes of Greek cuisine.

Wild Gorge Ha

Most people crossing the route between Agios Nikolaos and Ierapetra will definitely notice the large crack which is marked by the mountain located east of this road. This majestic geological creation called Ha was probably created as a result of an earthquake. The total length of the ravine is just over 1.5 km. Despite the fact that it is so perfectly visible, it still remains one of the wildest nooks in Crete. A few-meter rocky steep that forms the mouth of this gorge, effectively deters most visitors. Only people who have knowledge about climbing and having the necessary climbing equipment will be able to fully enjoy the beauty of this place.

If you are just ordinary tourists, you should not, after all, cross the Ha gorge from your holiday plans. It is worth taking a few kilometers off the main road to pass the village of Monastiraki, to be at the foot of steep rock walls, which rise several hundred meters up. The amazing calm prevailing in this place is drowned only by sheep and goats, which keep their bells still attached to the neck to know about their presence. Especially interesting may be the observation of these last animals, because they have the gift to appear on the least expected rock shelves, which seem to be available only to experienced climbers.

How to get

Regardless of where you are, access to the Ha gorge requires going to Agios Nikolaos. After turning into the road leading to the city of Ierapetra, you have to drive a few kilometers to turn east at Vasiliki. Using the few signposts you can reach the end of the asphalt road and then, walking along a gravel road, you can go to the mouth of the ravine.

Richtis Gorge

Richtis Gorge

Going deep into the Richtis Gorge near Exo Mouliana, it's hard not to resist the impression that you enter a land completely different from the rest of Crete. The abundance of water and shade mean that even at the peak of the tourist season, this place is full of lush vegetation. So obvious rust colors dominate in other places of Crete, here they are completely absent, because their place replaces juicy greenery.

Trip to the Samaria Gorge

Trip to the Samaria Gorge

Samaria is one of the most important tourist attractions located in the western part of Crete. In addition to such places as Balos and Elafonissi beaches or the extremely charming oldest part of the city of Chania, the gorge is one of the stronger magnets attracting tourists to this area of ​​the island.

Gosia | crete.pl : No jak zjesz je sama w całości i od razu to z pewnością będą to tysiące kalorii. :P Jeśli szukasz dietetycznego przepisu na ciasto to jednak nie w kuchni greckiej. Zresztą polskie ciasta robione na bazie całej kostki masła też mają mnóstwo kalorii. Wszak kaloryczność tłuszczy jest zbliżona.

gość PiotrWie: Dodam tylko że droga do Tris Ekklisies została wyasfaltowana na przełomie roku 2016/2017, gdy byliśmy tam w czerwcu 2017 była w trakcie ostatecznego wykończania - malowano pasy. W samych Tris Ekklisies wtedy był jeden pensjonat, drugi - w trakcie budowy. Sklepik był jeden, czynny kilka godzin dziennie, tawerny dwie. Ale plaże i góry wokół - super. (...)
gość Grażyna: Tragedia! tysiące kalorii w tym cieście!
Marek Knobel: Aż dziw ,ze zagląda tam tak mało ludzi.Byłem tydzień temu i pustki totalne :) :) a miasteczko przepiękne.
