Before I ask any questions on the forum, I thought it would be polite to introduce myself first. I appreciate the forum takes time to run etc and of course I must admit that like others, I am planning my trip and seeking advise for my own trip, but hopefully my questions and respected answers may help others in the future.
We have been to Crete once before. Stayed at Ibrostar Mirabello in Havania, near Akios Nikolas (East Crete)
Ventured out all the way to Vai, and also went to all the beaches along the way..
Also ventured to Irepetra. Yes I also took the Coast road after all the way along the South East as I love to explore more.
We also visited all the Cretin Villages, even those which are free to visit and not tourist based you can see from the roads.
Went up to the Plateau three times. Visited the wonderful Spinalonga & took a boat from Plaka. Also did Phaphos.
My Uncle & Aunt have an apartment in Elundia, which is a beautiful place.
Well that's the introduction.... Seen East Crete, now going west !
