As the largest island in Greece, Crete has quite a bit to offer travelers. Rugged mountains stretch across the island while olive trees fill the valleys. Visitors often indulge in the local cuisine, long celebrated for its healthy qualities, and embrace the country’s artistic culture by purchasing handmade pottery and jewelry. Additionally, the many ruins left behind by ancient civilizations like the Minoans can be explored throughout the island. All in all, Crete’s rich history and stunning locale is enough to make anyone want to hop on the next plane over, but what really draws the crowds are the numerous beaches lining the shore. Here are the top sandy stretches to hit next time you find yourself on the Mediterranean island.

Vai BeachThis beach at Crete's northeastern tip is famous for its palm trees–there are so many you may fool yourself into thinking you're in the Caribbean. The summer season brings large crowds, and the beach is often packed tight with sunbathers. Instead, beat the masses and arrive in the early morning or plan your trip for the early spring or late autumn.

Balos BeachRelax on the soft white sand lining this beach in northwestern Crete. From the lagoon, you can see the island of Gramvoussa. If you’re feeling adventurous, venture to the top of the island where the remains of a Venetian castle offer stunning views of the surrounding area.

Frangokástello BeachA Venetian castle, long used to guard the town against pirates, anchors this beach on the southern coast. The area’s history is rich and visitors can explore the castle as well as other ruins after a day on the beach. According to locals, you may even catch a ghost roaming the castle from time to time.

Mýrtos BeachMýrtos has been luring bohemian sun-seekers since the 1960s, and the laid-back vibe still exists today. You’ll find sunbathers lounging on the numerous free sunbeds scattered across the beach. Additionally, the surrounding area is known for multiple ancient Minoan sites. Make sure to check them once you’ve had enough sun.

Elafonísi BeachThe turquoise water is beautifully contrasted by pink-tinted sand (pictured above), making this beach on the southwestern tip of the island extremely Instagram-worthy. You’ll find yourself wading through warm water with access to multiple white sandbars or the natural islet sheltering the beach from rough waters. Elafonísi draws large crowds throughout the year, particularly in the summer months. So, if you want seclusion, head there in the spring.

Activities

The room was cluttered and filthy with dust and soot. It wasn’t an overly large room, but it had all the necessities a learned man might need, a handful of bookshelves stacked with the classic works, a dusty globe sat in the middle of the room next to a mahogany desk which overlooked the stone hearth. And whilst the fireplace was most impressive, it seldom saw use as its owner, the infamous (and rather dashing) Sir Benjamin Braxton of Kent was always elsewhere. Whether his adventures took him to the tops of the snow coated Alps, or as far to the east as the great tombs of China, there was never a dull moment in this man’s life. Early on in his life, Benjamin had decided he wanted to see the world, to explore the unexplored, to chart the uncharted and catalogue the uncatalogued. Always a keen fan of history and the bizarre mythos of the corners of the world, he had been knighted by Queen Victoria herself after discovering a great cache of ancient texts and scrolls in Egypt. But his adventures barely even start there, and there certainly do not end…
