    I have been to Crete, we stayed in a quieter village not far from Malia, it's nice, water parks, beaches, lots of bars, day trips out etc.

    Have i been to Malia <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> It was the most fucking incredible two weeks of my life <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Go forth and discover <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> I won't go on about it, it ruins the fun of it, but its small enough to make lots of friends yet big enough to have a bloody good night out, the weather, food, beach and people were all fantastic <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Its the best holiday i've had in Europe and i doubt many places ever will beat it, take lots of cash though, you'll need it <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I'm going to Crete in early September with my girlfriend! <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    We wanted somewhere quieter than Malia so we are going to a resort called Aghios Nikolaos.

    Some of my mates are going to Malia but me and my closest mates are going to Kavos in Corfu which is a sensational place..... <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Crete really is a lovely island, make sure you take a bus into Iraklion the main city, visit the habour area <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> We also got a bus from Iraklion to Knossos where the minatour is said to of lived, thats a magical place as well, both are must do trips <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    When we landed, we shit ourselves, the runway comes out into the sea, so if you unaware of that fact and your looking out the window all you see is sea getting nearer and nearer and nearer <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> then you magically hit runway <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    one and half litres of Ouzo for 4 quid, what a bargain.

    We went Kavos last year and we are going back again because it is so wicked, just one long strip of bars and clubs open till early in the morning right next to a beautiful beach

    my fave place without a doubt had to be the london bar. mainly becauce im into garage music, drum n base etc. we made friends with the owner and i pulled one of the bar men!!!! everytime we went he gave me free drinks which was a bonus! i liked the crash bar and also(dont know what it is called) but one where you can get fishbowls. they were wicked! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Went there on my honeymoon!

    10 years ago - fuck!

    *sudden realisation of how old he is!*

    Nice place, excellent restaurants, cheap town, recommend the harbour area and the restaurant on the beach.

    Warn you though, at about 3am we found that a boat would sail near the beach, obviously evening entertainment. They played greek music (suprise sur-fucking-prise) and the 'captain'(?)used a mike to shout "ooopmpah" for about an hour. Bastrad.

    Still nice to know that we had an hour when we could get to sleep. Meant we could indulge in the things that newlyweds do <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Was funny to be on the balcony watching the boat at the time too <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    There may be a boat trip to somewhere called (something like) Kalakia Bay, go! The water was the clearest I have ever seen, and so salty that you float really easy, they have banana boats and rubber rings that go around the bay and it's a great day out. We went on a day trip to there and to Spinaloza, the island where the lepers used to live.

    But buy your trips from the village, not the tour company as they rip you off!

    the island where the lepers used to live.
    sounds appealing! <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Thanks for the advice, sounds like an excellent place......

    Yeah Crete ive been there. Been to Malia which was good but not as hyped as i thought it'd be. I also stayed in stalis, much quieter. I find that i get chatted up by the waiters all the time and this waiter came to my hotel (at the time i was staying with my mum and Dad)..... embarrasing but good!!! You'll love it!

    Crete is a gorgeous island. One thing you MUST do...trust me on this...is go to the beach Falassarna. It's on the western side. You have to take a bus from Hania to Kissamos. Then take either a bus or even a taxi there. It's kind of out of the way and not super easy to get to, but it the most fucking beautiful beach I've ever seen, with barely anyone even there - making it the best kind of beach!! The sand is white and the water is very clear! Yum! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
