1.  Elafonissi Beach, Elafonissi

The small tropical paradise of the flat island separated from the land only a few meters of shallow turquoise waters, the fine white sand that gets pink shades from the broken shells, made this place a top destination of Crete and of Greece, a location where everyone would like to upload on social networking account.

2. Balos Lagoon, Kissamos

It is the ultimate destination of the island's western north shore, a tropical beach with turquoise waters that looks like a pool, a unique "gem" of the dry and barren peninsula at Cape Tigani, across from the uninhabited islet of Gramvousa with a medieval fortress.

3. Samaria Gorge National Park

It's not only the fame that distinguishes Samaria among the other 50 gorges, it's that within 18 km of its length amazing images are gathered, clearly Cretan, magnificent and unrivaled monument of the nature that you must definitely visit once in your life and you have to notify others on your instagram account.

4. Venetian Harbour Chania

Chania is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Crete, if not the most beautiful, mainly due to its old Venetian harbor. It took a long time and different conquerors to create this cinematic scene, which is full of life during the summer and with a sense of melancholy in winter time.

5. Spinalonga, Elounda

The abandoned - former leper colony - island in Mirabello Bay, today is one of the most beautiful Venetian monuments of Crete, and to tour the dilapidated buildings you will take the boat from the cosmopolitan Elounda and Plaka.

6. Loutro 

The scenic but at the same time secular fishing village of Loutro with crystal waters, is probably the only place on Crete secured from southern wind. It's also a place with no cars, since there are no roads and access is possible only by sea with boat.

7. Cretaquarium Thalassokosmos, Heraklion

Finally, you are at the seabed of Crete without snorkeling and flippers, face to face with underwater creatures and sealife of Mediterranean and Red Sea, a great experience to share and rise your instagram and facebook stories views.
