Crete in winter is beautiful and green. There are hardly any tourists and there is a lot of tranquility. Wintertime is very suitable for travelling around the island. The most famous tourist places (overcrowded in summer) are nice and quiet, so you can really see what Cretan life is all about. November and December are the months to see more activity in the mountains. Everybody is occupied with harvesting the olives. These are also the months to really enjoy the late summer. In many mountain villages people are then distilling the Raki. Raki is made from the leftovers of the grapes. Really nice to see!

Heraklion is also worth a visit in winter. The archaeological museum is nice and quiet, but you can also visit Knossos in peace this time of the year. Starting from Zorbas Island we organise a variety of excursions, but you can also undertake tours yourself by rental car or local bus. With pleasure we advise you. The prices of the rental cars are significantly lower in the winter period compared to the summer season. It could be even half price sometimes!

Even the months of January and February are good for a winter vacation. The location of Zorbas Island apartments is central on Crete and is an ideal starting point for day trips by bus or car. March and April show a beautiful springtime. From mid-March Crete is like a bed of flowers! It seems as if the mountain villages awaken from hibernation and this is the perfect time to travel around.
