Waterparks, historic towns, beach resorts – our family breaks to Crete show off the best bits of Greece’s biggest isle.

From SplashWorld to SuneoClub

If you see a SplashWorld or SuneoClub tag on a hotel, it’s a dead giveaway that it’s a family-friendly establishment. Take the Atlantica Akti Zeus Hotel in beach resort Amoudara. The in-house waterpark ticks off Boomerang, Black Hole and multi-racer slides. SuneoClub hotels, meanwhile, specialise in great value for money. Daytime activities and globetrotting buffet restaurants come as standard.

Explore Crete

Crete is the biggest island in Greece, so there’s loads to see. Acqua Park is a waterpark that serves up slides for kids and R&R zones for adults. If you’d rather give the family a history lesson, head for the city of Chania. It used to be a Minoan stronghold, but the Venetians, Greeks and Turkish have also put their stamp on it in the form of fortresses and lighthouses. Bag a sunlounger at one of the beach resorts, meanwhile, and you’ll have watersports, tavernas and boat trips in grabbing distance.

Book a family holiday to Crete, and you’ll soon be spending a few nights in an All Inclusive hotel on the biggest island in Greece. Waterparks, kids’ clubs, evening shows, beachfront locales — they’re all on the cards.
