During this week with cooking workshops you will learn how to make the most delicious Greek dishes.

End of June on Crete: The last week of June and the first week of July is a wonderful time to come on holiday.

October on Crete: The month of October is also a wonderful month. This is perhaps the nicest month to come on holiday. The temperature is in general still very pleasant and not too high. The sea water is always relatively warm in this month. This is of course ideal for an active holiday, combined with wonderful beach days.

Why Zorbas Island: It is an affordable and great location, which is not overrun by mass tourism. In addition, the homely atmosphere, all our own and unique excursions, a personal service and the culture make Zorbas Island special. Because of the many excursions that we offer and which we have mapped out ourselves, we often get the request to cooperate with tour operators. This is not what we want. We prefer to keep everything in our own hands, so that we can offer you an unforgettable holiday with a personal service.

Accommodation Zorbas Island: The accommodation with 21 apartments is located directly on the coast. From our swimming pool you have a breath-taking view of the Aegean Sea. Directly at the pool you will find our pool bar and tavern with outdoor kitchen and grill house. Every day we serve your breakfast & dinner in our tavern as a buffet, while you enjoy the beautiful view. In the outdoor kitchen and grill house we regularly prepare typical Greek grill dishes or a BBQ at the end of the day. In the kitchen we use fresh vegetables and herbs from our own organic garden around the apartments. We offer an extensive lunch menu with a variety of sandwiches, snacks, pancakes, omelettes and mezedes (small Greek appetizers). In addition, you can also enjoy delicious local Cretan wines, a good cup of coffee, lovely ice creams and milkshakes or a special cocktail. Zorbas Island is open all year round and is suitable for everybody with apartments for 1 up to 6-12 persons. It is also possible to stay here with a group. Click on Zorbas Island.

Beach at Zorbas Island: Directly in front of the accommodation we have a private sandy beach. It is a wonderful place to relax on a bed in the sun and to swim in the sea. You can walk into the sea up to many meters, since it is not deep here. If you fancy something to eat or drink, we will simply bring it to you on the beach. There are sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach and our guests can always use these. When you buy here a cup of coffee or a soft drink, you can use these free of charge the whole day.
