Holiday Overview

Situated off the southeast coast of Greece, Crete is one of the Mediterranean's most treasured island escapes. The birthplace of the Greek god of gods, Zeus, and the jewel in the crown of the Minoan, Byzantine and Venetian empires, the island's fascinating history is matched by its breathtaking natural beauty. With its pristine beaches, rugged coves and rolling landscapes, it's easy to see why so many visitors fall in love with Crete's combination of postcard-perfect coast, mountains and countryside villages.

Of course, the island also boasts several bustling towns and cities, where local bars and restaurants serve up mouth-watering seafood and trendy boutiques sell everything from handmade leather goods to designer dresses. On your accessible Crete holiday, you'll have the chance to discover the island at your own pace, with the support of the Limitless Travel team.

As well as enjoying plenty of time to relax in the sun and make use of the hotel's excellent accessible facilities, there'll be excursions to the picturesque coastal village of Maleme and the vibrant Venetian harbour at Chania. A visit to a local microbrewery, olive oil mill and winery means you can indulge in the region's finest fresh produce, while the wheelchair accessible Agii Apostoli beach ensures you'll enjoy a laid back day soaking up the atmosphere on one of the island's prettiest stretches of coast.

Day 4 - Agii Apostoli Accessible Beach Excursion

Today, we’ll be heading to Agii Apostoli beach, which has recently been revamped to ensure it’s wheelchair accessible. Beach wheelchairs are available for use if you fancy taking a dip in the beautiful Mediterranean waters, while extensive wooden decking has been laid across sections of the beach if you’d rather stay out of the sand. The town attached to the beach boasts excellent tourist infrastructure, so you’ll be able to take a break from the sun in one of the many beachfront cantinas or grab a bite to eat in a local restaurant. A paved promenade also runs along much of the top of the beach, allowing you to take an afternoon wander if you fancy a change of scenery.

Crete is famous for its delicious island cuisine and is a popular destination amongst travellers who appreciate sensational food and spectacular wines.

Situated on the north side of the island, not too far from the hotel, this ancient city has been influenced by many of the region’s great empires, with fine examples of Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman architecture spread throughout its streets. With its beautiful Venetian harbour and atmospheric, labyrinth lanes, it’s the ideal place to kick back with a cocktail and watch the world go by.
