Greek Islands - Crete (Chapter)
This is the Crete chapter from Lonely Planet’s Greek Islands guidebook.
Nature in Crete is prolific with a dramatic quilt of big-shouldered mountains, stunning beaches, crystal-clear lagoons and undulating hillsides blanketed in olive groves, vineyards and wildflowers. Crete’s natural beauty is equalled only by the richness of its history.
