A Cretan cocktail in Lasithi

Whatever Cretan wonder you're after, Lasithi's got the lot. Dazzling pebble coves of white stone and cerulean sea? Check. Sinewy mountains that drop to goat-trodden gorges? Check. Mystical caves and plateaus clad in olive trees? Check. The towns – chic Elounda, rustic Myrtos – offer a medley of whitewashed tavernas and seaside bars, all peppered with gorgeous Lasithi vacation rentals, some with pools, some with sea views, some surrounded by lemon orchards and olive farms. For adventure and relaxation combined, Crete's easternmost province obliges.

Things to do

Lasithi's enthralling past

Amid the rugged peaks and gorges of Lasithi lurks an enthralling past. You can hike all the way to hidden Minoan tombs in the village of Magoula, to find ancient sepulchers only recently unearthed between the almond forests and olive groves. More popular is the beautiful fortress that crowns Spinalonga Island. You'll need to pull yourself away from the shimmering beaches of Elounda to head there, but it's worth it. Its Venetian keeps and Ottoman bazaars, cacti-clad towers and rocky bays, make it a real living history museum.

Activities

Touring the untrodden isle in Lasithi

Lasithi is tucked away from the brochure-fodder resorts of Malia and Chania to the west, and promises a much more rustic, adventurous experience of Crete. Rocky donkey trails wiggle up to the mountains from the shore, an invitation for budding hikers and mountain bikers. There are verdant olive farms studding the hills, where you can taste your way through oils and breads and more. There are deep gorges for intrepid types, even laden with ancient Minoan tombs and babbling waterfalls. The coast, meanwhile, is for boating trips, snorkeling sessions and good old sunbathing.

Weather

The long Lasithi summer

Crete isn't like the rest of Greece. With its unique culture and history also comes a unique climate. The place heats up as early as May and stays warm until as late as October. Throughout those summer months, you can expect temperatures to creep over 100, which is why so many folks try to bag Lasithi vacation rentals with a pool or access to a beach. Visits in April and November, in early spring and fall, are a great idea if you're looking to dodge the crowds or hike the Cretan mountains without the heat.

Natural features

Untrodden gorges and bays in Lasithi

Lasithi is just about as rugged as it gets in Crete. Seek out Lasithi vacation rentals in the mountains and you'll be surrounded by uber-rustic hamlets and scrub-dressed hills where caves and grottoes carve the ridges. The deep Gorge of the Dead, named for its Minoan tombs, is perhaps the biggest haven for hikers – the trailheads are at little Zakros, on the east coast. Talking of coast, that wiggles from Malia's body-peppered strips all the way round to the black-sand bays of charming Myrtos. Vai and Elounda are in the middle, famed for their crystal waters and sprouting palm forests.
