Crete Offers Fantastic Winter Sun Break Bargains

Nobody wants to sit in the cold and nasty winters of the UK if they do not have to, which makes a perfect reason to go on a winter sun holiday. A winter sun holiday is when you take a holiday during the winter in a warm location. If you are going to take a winter sun holiday, then there is no better place to visit than Crete. Crete is a Greek island that is located in the Mediterranean Sea. Crete has a population of just over 623,000 people, which makes it the most populous of all of Greek islands. The beautiful weather found in Crete during the winter and the amazing attractions make a Crete holiday a great option, especially during the winter.

The average high temperatures during the winter months in Crete will be between 17 and 20 °C. The months of November and December are generally warmer than January and February. This beautiful weather makes a perfect reason to leave the UK and see the winter sun in Crete. There are several amazing beaches throughout Crete where you can enjoy the warm weather and relax or go swimming.

After you are done on the beach, the first attraction that you must see during your Crete holiday is the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum is located in the city of Heraklion and features one of the most extensive displays of artefacts from the Minoan era in the world. The Minoans were an ancient society that used to live in Crete. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum first opened in 1883 with only a few artefacts and now features 20 different rooms of artefacts. Every room is focused on artefacts that were found in the same region or that are from the same era of time.

Another great place to visit during your Crete holiday is the Cretaquarium. The Cretaquarium is an aquarium that is located in the city of Gournes. The Cretaquarium was opened in 2005 and features over 2500 different animals. Of the over 2500 different animals, there are 250 different species on display in the aquarium. The Cretaquarium features 60 different tanks filled with animals and is the only large public aquarium that is located in the country of Greece. This is a great way to see all of the animals and fish that are local to the region of Crete without having to go into the water. There are also several other museums that are located throughout the island of Crete. If you are a football fan, then there are three different football clubs that play their home games in Crete. No matter what you decide to do while on the island, it will be nice to get away from the cold weather of the UK and see the winter sun in Crete.
