The Top Five Most Romantic Spots in Crete

August 19, 2021
To say that the Greek Islands are romantic is a huge understatement. Whether you go here for your honeymoon or a simple romantic holiday for two, there's no way you won't fall even deeper in love with each other while you're here. In fact, even if you spend all your time on just one island, you're guaranteed to strengthen your relationship in more ways than one. And that definitely rings true with Crete! Although it's one of the bigger and busier Greek Islands, there are still those must-see romantic hotspots here that you ought to go to with your significant other!

The Top Five Most Romantic Spots in Crete


Chania Old Town

Of course, when you go to any European destination, the Old Towns there would prove to be extremely romantic. There's just something about places that have preserved their ambiance and culture over the last few centuries that gets you in the mood. Perhaps it's the charm of the place? Or the fact that you and your partner are walking along a path that countless other loves have walked before? Whatever it is, the old town of Chania, itself one of the central cities in Crete, is certainly this sort of place. Whether you explore the district on foot or go for a horse-drawn carriage ride, a cinematic love affair awaits you here!

Rethymno

But if you're talking about preserved culture at its finest, look no further than the Renaissance town of Rethymno. Having kept up its Medieval vibes for many years, the place looks straight out of a tragic love story. Think narrow pathways where lovers have passed each other at a glance. Vine-lined terraces where countless confessions of affection were made. And a wide public square where they've chosen to be together no matter what despite the disapproval of their antagonistic families. Doesn't that sound like a great love story you'll want to relive as you explore more of the city?

Agia Galini Harbor

Harbors always make for great spots to spend time with your significant other. There's just something about sitting by calm waters, watching as the town on one end and the fishermen's boats on the other go by, and getting lost in conversation. Even more so if this scene includes a sunset too! Wouldn't that be an ideal date? Definitely! So it's a good thing that such a place exists in Crete—the Agia Galini Harbor in Rethymno. Giving you the best of both worlds, the natural wonders of the island and the rustic charm of the coastal city, this is one of the best places to get into a romantic mood.

Zaros Lake

Speaking of harbors, you'd think that, in a place like Crete, the best ones are by the sea, right? For the most part, that's true, but there's one that you absolutely have to visit as a couple: Zaros Lake! This man-made lake in Heraklion is the ultimate remote romantic paradise on the island. Calm waters, freshwater breezes, a few waterfalls here and there, and a flurry of luscious greeneries that'll surround you! And the best part? It's one of the lesser-known spots in Crete, ensuring fewer crowds when you get here. What's not to love?

Falassarna Beach

Finally, there's Falassarna Beach! You can't talk about the most romantic places in Crete, or on any other Greek island for that matter, without mentioning a beach. And among the best of the best here, Falassarna Beach tops the list of the most romantic. The place itself is a vast expanse of sand and sea, a good percentage of which remains untouched. You won't see as many commercialized areas here, further amping its remote-like ambiance. Because of this, Falassarna Beach is also among the best places to watch the sunset. So much so that you will drown in the orange-toned twilight! If that's not romantic, then what is?
