  1. This is awesome. I need a vacation and quite frankly, Chania is my spot. Love a good beach. I love exploring new places to check out the history and culture.

  2. I wasn’t able to visit Crete during my last trip to Greece, and I super regret not adding to my itinerary! It sounds like you had the best time. I’d definitely like to visit in september when there are fewer people, but still great weather! Added to my list for next year!

  3. Crete looks like a beautiful destination. I can’t wait until I get the chance to visit one day and use all your recommendations! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Your photos are amazing! Crete looks gorgeous, I feel like I don’t hear as much about it as I do other islands like Santorini and Mykonos. I hope to visit Greece soon and Crete is definitely on my list!

  5. I´ve never been to Crete! But thanks to this one now I want to! Specially because I´m a solo traveler most of the time!

  6. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I have been solo traveller for years now. You also have gorgeous photos. Lovely

  7. I love that Crete is so well known for solo female travel! I’ve never gone anywhere alone but I would definitely be terrified to go to a new country that I dont know alone. Several places I have gone, I have not felt safe, fortunately I was not alone.

  8. The water there looks amazing! I’ve been wanting to visit Greece for a while, so I may have to take a solo trip to Crete soon so I can finally go!

  9. I loved Crete, too, and am so looking forward to going back. The Knossos Palace is amazing, but I also really enjoyed the many treasures excavated from there that are now in the Heraklion Museum of Archaeology. The Samaria Gorge is a phenomenal hike! So beautiful. Glad you had such a wonderful time.

  10. Crete looks amazing – we had not considered visiting until reading your epic guide. Thank you for sharing all these incredible tips! So ready for a beach vacation.

  11. One could probably spend many vacations trying to explore all of the Greek Isles. This looks like another fantastic one. I appreciate your overview of the beaches, food, day trips, and places to stay.

  12. Great Post! Didn’t know Crete had so many fun things to do. I love all the recommendations in your post from beaches to where to stay and eat and the wine tours. Very thorough guide. Thank you for sharing!

  13. Currently dipping my toes into solo travel and wondered how you found eating alone, especially for dinners, in Chania? Currently tossing up between staying in a hotel that has a pool to lounge around or an Airbnb that has a kitchen. Thank you! x

    1. Eating alone was always something I didn’t love when I first solo traveled, but now I love it! I just have something to do when I am there. Usually, I am editing my photos or researching what I am going to do the next day. A pool is great! Although, I spent all my time at the beach. I would highly suggest wherever you stay, be in the center of town. If you are new to solo travel, you want to be close to town, so you don’t feel secluded. I made that mistake in Sorrento, Italy. I had to take a bus to town daily.
