Agios Pavlos, Alatsogremni and Triopetra beaches

In his latest film, Giannis Psaroudakis shows a beautiful fragment of the southern coast of Crete. The vicinity of the small town of Agios Pavlos and the two beaches (Mikri and Megali) of Triopetra are still classified as peaceful places, and the characteristic dunes of Alatsogremni are even an oasis of peace. Be sure to watch this movie!

Another heatwave in Greece

In the coming days, Greece will find itself under the influence of hot air masses flowing in from the North African region. In some parts of the country, the maximum air temperature, according to meteorologists' predictions, may even reach over 43 ° C. Such indications can be observed on the continent and in the southern regions of Crete. Unfortunately, you cannot count on a respite from the high temperatures at night, because even during these hours the mercury will not fall below 25-26ºC.

Interesting places for history lovers in the Chania Prefecture

Today we have prepared the second episode of our new series of articles, in which we will present the most interesting places within one prefecture. We were the first to take a closer look at the Chania area, where we showed the most interesting roads a week ago. Today we chose places related to the history of Crete. Of course, our selection does not exhaust this topic.

The history of Crete is not only the excavations of palaces from the Minoan times. This is of course an important part of its history, but it should be remembered that many traces of the past were left by the Venetians and Turks, who for many centuries occupied Crete. There are also many traces left by World War II on the island. Our selection takes account of this diversity.

Hotel Owners' Association offers tickets to two famous beaches of Crete

Some topics come back like a boomerang from time to time. One of them is limiting the number of tourists on the two most crowded Cretan beaches: Balos and Elafonissi. Of course, this is not a groundless idea, because these places have been struggling with a strong phenomenon of overtourism for several years. This time, the introduction of paid tickets to these places was proposed by the Association of Hotel Owners of Chania Prefecture. They decided that in this way it would be possible to control the number of people visiting these two places.

Paid admission to Balos and Elafonissi?

Rules for ferry travel within Greece

In recent days, Greek authorities have updated the rules for traveling by ferry between the mainland of Greece and the Greek islands and between the islands themselves. Depending on the direction of travel, however, there are slight differences in the documents accepted. So if you are planning this type of trip, the following list will be helpful for you. At least until the regulations change again :)

Interesting roads in Chania prefecture

Everyone probably knows that Crete is a large island. When you come here for the first time, you will definitely not see all the interesting places, because the distance between individual attractions is in some cases quite a lot. Of course, there are tourists who do not plan to return to the same places, so during one stay on the island they want to see as much as possible. To these people, we recommend our articles such as Top 12 Crete and Top 20 beaches , which in a nutshell show the most famous places of Crete.

But there is also a large group of Crete admirers who have swallowed the mole-buckthorn and return to the island once again with the intention of getting to know the region in which they have accommodation more closely.

Interesting roads in the Chania area

Therefore, today we are starting a series of what can be described as " interesting places nearby ... " in which we will show you thematically divided points of interest located in each of the Crete prefecture. These will be both well-known and popular places, but we will show you less typical suggestions, which in our opinion are also interesting. Of course, it is impossible to describe everything interesting on the island, so it was necessary to make a preliminary selection. So these will be our subjective types, but if you know other interesting places that you would like to recommend to others, just enter them in the comments, of course referring to the published category. As this topic grows larger, we will probably create a special space on our website where you will be able to easily find all the articles created within this series.

As the first topic, we chose interesting roads located throughout the Chania Prefecture . To make it easier to find the described places, we have also developed a google map with markers. The roads we have chosen for today's part are paved roads. We do not expect to describe the unpaved ones (possibly in a small amount), because when you rent cars at local rental companies, you know well that damage caused on such roads is not covered by insurance.

gość PiotrWie: I to jest zdecydowanie ciekawsza Kreta niż zbiorowiska hoteli All Inclusive.
Jedziemy za chwilkę sprawdzić
Byliśmy w sierpniu w Kavrós - upał był nie do opisania i to codziennie ☀️ ale ja to lubię
Ok. 34 stopni w okolicach Heraklionu, ale wiatr chłodzi na plaży. Jak przestanie wiać, to może być piekiełko
Lecimy za 10 dni na Kretę, liczę że będzie trochę chłodniej
Jesteśmy na południu Krety i dzięki wodzie się totalnie tego nie odczuwa
Tak. Jest bardzo gorąco tylko baseny i plażowanie
Ładnie opisane brakuje mi tylko z 3-4 klasztorów min z Półwyspu Akrotiri
gość PiotrWie: Dlaczego trzeba jeździć w połowie marca - spokojnie można było pływać, woda porównywalna do Bałtyku na początku lipca, a tak całkiem poważnie to albo do połowy maja - tylko nie w długi weekend majowy bo wtedy jest dużo Włochów i Francuzów, lub w październiku - wtedy woda jest ciepła i poza weekendem nie ma prawie łudzi.  
Dzień dobry, czy macie Państwo jakieś informacje czy we okresie 09.2021 rząd grecki planuje jakieś obostrzenia ? Tzn czy będzie utrudniony wjazd na wyspe
To teraz tłum X2
gość PiotrWie: Dopóki nie było doprowadzonej szosy było niewiele ludzi, od wyasfaltowana dojazdu ilość odwiedzających się zwielokrotniła. Teraz rzeczywiście trzeba ucywilizować miejsce do końca. Według mnie najlepszym rozwiązaniem byłoby zrobienie zejścia jednokierunkowego. (...)
Wielka pora, bo zejście tam to koszmar
Przecież zejście na tą plaże to sama przyjemności. Gorzej z dojazdem samochodem i pod górę z powrotem.Mega stresujące ale nawet słabym samochodzikiem na 1 lub 2 biegu da radę.
I kolejne ciekawe miejsce zostało niepotrzebnie "zurbanizowane"
Wchodzenie i schodzenie to cały urok tej plaży :) tak jak na Preveli :p
Lepiej powiedzieć ludziom aby nie jechali tam busem. Ledwo się z tamtąd wykaraskalem. Zjechać było łatwo ale z powrotem było ciężko
Wyciąg by zrobili
Jutro to obadam ;)
Zdala jestem od myślenia katastroficznego ale coś mi intuicja podpowiada ze znając „inwestowanie” Greków wszystkie pieniądze od turystów pójdą w prywatne kieszenie a nie ochronę tych pięknych miejsc, a kiedy już dojdzie do ich zniszczenia przez ludzka stopę, to postawią tam wielkie hotele z prywatna plaza, bo tylko to zostanie.
jeszcze niech za powietrze zaczną naliczać, za chlor w basenie, sól w morzu, opłatę za sterylne all inclusive etc. Grecji już i tak nie ma od dawna, mogą stawać na uszach i tak się nie dorobią Greki zapyziałe
Dobry pomysł, ale jak z tym pójdzie jakieś udogodnienia typu ubikacja z prawdziwego zdarzenia itp
