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.

Diaskari Beach - Green Beach

Diaskari beach (Παραλία Διασκάρι), also known as Green Beach, you will find less than 30 km east of Ierapetra. If you spend your holiday in Makry Gialos, you can easily go there on foot, because it is less than 3 km from this holiday resort. This quiet beach with a small and simple tavern is a good way to spend a relaxing day away from more crowded places.

Green Beach

Diaskari is a little known and not very popular beach, which will appeal to people who are looking for more secluded somewhat wild places. This does not mean that the beach is small, just the opposite. Its length is about 350 meters.

The beach is covered with thick sand and small pebbles washed by crystal clear water. When entering the sea, however, you need to show vigilance because the descent is lined with slippery, stone slabs on which it is easy to slip. Larger dimensions of the beach mean that, apart from the relatively small organized part, there is a lot of room for those seeking seclusion on the east side. Often the sympathizers of natureism also use this piece of beach.


Green Beach - Diaskari-Kiosk

Diaskari is also not overloaded with beach infrastructure, you will not find several rows of sun loungers here. For the price of 8 € you can only rent a so-called kiosk, that is, two sun loungers under a straw canopy.
Near the part, just off the asphalt road leading from Makry Gialos, there is also a small tavern. You can eat several freshly prepared Greek delicacies (eg okra in tomatoes) and make small purchases in a mini-market.

Green Beach - view of the beach

The eastern end of the Diaskari beach is marked by a small promontory, after which an even larger and three times longer Lagada beach begins, which is completely wild :)

Palm beach of Vai

Palm beach of Vai

Vai grew loud when in the 1970s a commercial of coconut Bounty bars was filmed on the background of a palm grove, which probably most of you associate. Coconuts falling in advertising were fabricated because only date palms grow on Vai. Nevertheless, paradise on earth was discovered. The hippies first appeared here, looking for a new mecca, and Vai became a giant camping site surrounded by a mountain of garbage.

Tripiti beach and gorge

Tripiti beach and gorge

Tripiti is a small beach covered with a mixture of gray sand, gravel and stones. Despite the fact that the beach is unorganized and has a semi-natural appearance, one small tavern works here. The vast majority of people relaxing in this place are the local Cretans. This is evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of parked cars are pickups and off-road vehicles. A great surprise is the view of many caravans, campers and tents, which are in the vicinity of tablets strongly prohibiting camping and parking ... caravans. On the hill in the north-eastern part of the beach (Kalokambos), you can see small Minoan ruins.

Elafonisi - a beach with pink sand

Elafonisi - a beach with pink sand

Elafonissi is a small island located at the end of the south-western edge of Crete. A characteristic feature of Elafonisi is the shallow lagoon connecting it with Crete. Warm and crystal clear water with a color changing from green to deep blue, is adjacent to beautiful wide beaches, whose white sand is in some places mixed with broken shells creating picturesque pink stripes. This amazing blend of colors makes Elafonissi easily claim to be called an exotic paradise.

gość PiotrWie: Zgubić się w wąwozie Kourtaliko to sztuka. Trzeba przekroczyć wybetonowane obrzeże ścieżki i pójść poza wyznaczona trasą  Ale ludzie mają różne dziwne pomysły - wczoraj widzieliśmy dwie osoby uparcie próbujące zejść ze stromego klifu ścieżką zamkniętą płotem i wyraźnie oznakowaną zakaz wstępu, niebezpieczeństwo wypadku.
Love seeing them in flight, supreem fliers!
Bliskie spotkania :)
Byłam w ostatni wtorek i zastanawiałam się, co to za piękne, drapieżne ptaki latają nad Lassithi! Możliwe, że właśnie wtedy zostały wypuszczone?
gość PiotrWie: Dziś byliśmy na plaży Sarakiniko. Tragedii nie było - tylko dwa autobusy i 23 samochody osobowe. Ponieważ teren jest dość rozległy to się rozeszli i nie przeszkadzało. Ale nie wyobrażam sobie co tu się dzieje w lipcu i sierpniu.
Och nie miałam wielką nadzieję że do tego nie dojdzie.
Super jak ja byłam to był szlak zamkniety
Super miejsce. Kto wybiera się na Kretę, to powinien mieć w planach ten wąwóz. Polecam
jeszcze tylko 2.5 miesiąca :)
Podobne plany w Komiža na Wyspie Vis w Chorwacji. Żal.
Koszmar. Plakias to takie piękne miejsce, a klif niesamowity.
W 2020 było cudownie, pusto, czysto i cicho. Zalety pandemi....
Poza fajną laską nic ciekawego
Byłem pierwszy raz na Balos w 2012 roku, w szczycie sezonu i pamiętam, że zrobiła na mnie ogromne wrażenie. Ludzi było wtedy mniej, dało się zaparkować na szczycie bez problemu. Kolejny raz w zeszłym roku. Również w sezonie. Miałem wrażenie, że droga zrobiła się jakaś węższa i bardziej niebezpieczna. Samochodów multum, było naprawdę ciężko się dostać na szczyt. (...)
Piękna i niezwykla
gość CreteYourLife: Prace już trwają. Usypali drogę i kopary rozjeżdżają klif. 
Smrodek, wiatr taki, że w oczy sypie piachem, mnóstwo ludzi, jako plaża skała posypana piachem. Za to Gramvousa Super
gość PiotrWie: Tu jest sporo szlaków pieszych, prowadzących z Chorio od odludnych plaż. Oczywiście nie jest to wyspa na 3  tygodnie, w czwartek przenosimy się na Milos Po powrocie napiszę więcej.  
Gosia | crete.pl : Kimolos wydaje się być wyspą na krótki wypad. Jest dość mała. Po urlopie napiszesz coś więcej na jej temat?
gość PiotrWie: My byśmy na Balos na początku czerwca 2009 i już wtedy stwierdziliśmy że jest za dużo ludzi. Nie potrafię sobie wyobrazić co się dzieje w lipcu i sierpniu - nigdy nie byliśmy w tym okresie pomimo 17 pobytów na Krecie. Obecnie jesteśmy na Kimolos, turystów można policzyć na palcach jednej ręki. Plaże mamy tylko dla siebie. (...)
Przepiękne miejsce. Miałam przyjemność być, gdy było mało osób.
