North coast of Crete

The documentation Crete will take you to the tourist attractions of the Greek island of Crete.

The journey begins in Bali on the north coast of Crete. Bali is located about 40 km west of Heraklion and is popular among the locals and tourists alike. The fishing village has several beaches. One of the beaches is excellent for snorkeling. This half-hidden bay reveals a beautiful underwater world. Because Bali is a very small place with a beautiful harbor and several taverns, you can find here plenty of rest and relaxation.

But back to the center of Crete. After Bali you get to know the historic old town of Heraklion with its sights and the archaeological site of Knossos, about 5 km from Heraklion.

Crete is considered the birthplace of the Minoan civilization, the earliest civilization in Europe. Knossos on Crete is probably the largest ancient city of that time. Besides Malia and Phaistos, the palace of Knossos is the largest Minoan palace in Crete.
