How is it going?
Does anybody know is it really hard to be the savage on Crete?.. I mean, I want to buy a trip to Rethimno or somewhere else, go to the hotel and make the headquaters there, but, then, I want to take a tent and rent a bike, and begin to travel on the island.
Is this really hard to realize? I read that it is forbidden to stay the tent where you want, isn't it? Could you give some advice on this? I do not want to stay the tent on the officially approved camp grounds.
Have you some information about bike rent on crete? how much is it?
Also, do you know something about deserted beaches on the north coast? Some cozy places, where you could swim, relax without any other visitors (or LESS visitors). Is it really hard to find?
Thank you! :)

what you describe is possible. Camping is illegal outside of camping grounds but if you go to a secluded beach, you won't have any problems. There is no guarantee about that though and some risk is necessary.
You will find useful information about the beaches of Crete in the following page: www.explorecrete.com/crete-beaches.htm
