Known in Greek mythology as the birthplace of the sky god Zeus, Crete is the largest and most densely populated of all the Greek islands.

Located in the south of the Aegean Sea, the island of Crete boasts of stunning bays like Seitan Limania Beach and Elafonissi Beach; towering landscapes like the Samaria Gorge; and even ancient palaces like the Palace of Knossos — an archaeological site from the Bronze Age that is considered to be the oldest city in Europe.
