The Top Five Most Unique Instagrammable Spots in Crete

August 20, 2021
Crete is undoubtedly a beautiful island. The place serves as its own paradise of idyllic dreams, one where white sands, calm seas, and plenty of sunshine reign supreme. Just about every corner of this island is as pretty as a picture worth a thousand words. Or, when it comes to social media, worth a thousand likes! Especially if what you post about is a place not anybody can see anywhere else. Sure, the beaches and coasts all look beautiful, but on an island like Crete, they're par for the course. There are, however, a few spots worth capturing that will intrigue your followers in the best way possible!

The Top Five Most Unique Instagrammable Spots in Crete


Psychro Cave

Granted, a place that looks like the ideal model for hell doesn't necessarily sound that enticing to begin with, that is the most exciting part about Psychro Cave. Also known as the 'Diktean Cave,' the place looks straight out of a horror movie. Sharp spikes, crusty rock walls, and the way the lighting down here is done, you'd think the floor was on fire! Wouldn't such a place make for a perfect spooky Instagram post? Your followers will surely take notice of it on their timelines. And as for your caption, mention the fact that Psychro Cave is considered as the place where the goddess Rhea (allegedly) gave birth to Zeus! That'll pique their interest for sure!

Spinalonga

It's easy to forget that Greece had a Medieval past to it. Now that the country has become known for its beaches and coasts, both locals and tourists tend to overlook the fascinating relics of this part of the country's history. But that's what makes places like Spinalonga even more fascinating. An entire medieval fortress that dominates its own island will definitely grab your followers' attention on Instagram. Not even the most seasoned travel Instagrammers have posted enough about this place. If you get lucky enough to go here, make sure to set a part of your timeline dedicated to Spinalonga!

Koules Fortress

Speaking of a fortress, the Koules Fortress, also named 'Rocca al Mare,' is another worth checking out. Located at the port of Heraklion, one of the main towns of Crete, this 13th-century Venetian structure exemplifies the fine architecture of that time. You probably won't find a fortress as symmetrical as this in any other part of the country. The precise architecture is so refined that you can still feel intimidated when you see it from a distance as if you were part of the enemy troops marching forward. Just imagine the comments you'll get when you post this on Instagram. Many of your followers will probably share the same sentiments!

Knossos Minoan Palace

Now for a different type of influence—the Minoans. The Minoan civilization used to rule over Greece and the rest of the Mediterranean. And their seat of power was right here on Crete island. You can still see a lot of their ruins and relics all throughout the island. They're the starkest reminders of their former glory and among all of them, one of the most eye-catching is the Knossos Minoan Palace. Although parts of the ruins were reconstructed, most of them have been relegated to dust and rubble. But the few that remained intact, however, still featured the culture's exuberant color and imagery. They'll definitely catch anyone's eye on Instagram!

Samariá Gorge

Up for a hike in Crete? Go to the Samariá Gorge. Firstly, this is the easiest trial to go on for beginners. The pathway is laid out in such an organized way, you'd think you were just walking in a park! And when you get here, you'll get treated to stunning scenes of forested mountains, fairytale-like woodlands, gentle streams, and more! You'll probably run out of batteries snapping away and posting on Instagram in real-time! To ensure that won't happen, don't forget one important tip: bring a power bank! This will help you post everything you capture for your followers!
