The Magical Island of Crete, Greece

This island has it all....rugged green forests, dry "Cyclades-style" mountains, snow covered mountains in the winter, and sandy white beaches everywhere!

What amazes me is the amount of snow this southern Greek island can actually get!

The pictures were taken from the following site:

http://www.west-crete.com/

It is a good site if you want to know everything there is to know about the island of Crete (lots of accomodation information as well):










































And lastly, two very nice panoramas, One is of the harbour of Chania, and teh other is a random beach picture:

You're qwelcome Kuesel!

Although I have been to Greece 32 times and even lived there, I have only been there once!

It is definitely a place I need to explore further and visit again!

Strange indeed that Crete gets so much snow, given the Island's location.
