The sheer size and beauty of the island of Crete makes it an ideal destination for travelers looking to log some time hiking in the Mediterranean. By far the largest islands in Greece, Crete is home to more than half a million people, but it is easy and advisable to enjoy the many wild places that the island has to offer.
It stands to reason that an island that is more than 160 miles long (and nearly 40 miles across) offers some varied terrain, and Crete doesn’t disappoint in this regard.
