Last year I was living in London, so during the summer vacations my friends and I took a trip to Crete!

It was a vacation package that included flights from London to Crete and 8 nights at a Hotel in Malia, one of the big cities in the island.

We used Malia as our HQ, rented a car and did some daytrips to nearby beaches and historical sites - One day to Santorini island (daytrip arranged by a tour agency), then with the car: one day to Knossos ruins and Matala beach, and another day to Kournas lake and Elafonisi beach.

It was such a great trip, the roadtrips itself were amazing, with stunning scenarios!

Malia is a young city - its nightlife is very busy, and during summertime a lot of students from all europe (specially England) go there to party, so if you're looking for a more familiar deal, you should probably choose one of the other cities of Crete.

Best day trip of this trip to greece, beautiful landscapes, the white houses contrast with the deep blue sea in an marvellous way! Also, the tour we took to dive in the volcanic waters was a great experience.
