Long stretches of sand can be hard to find in Europe, where much of the coastline is rocky. So the prevalence of inviting shorelines and calm waves is exactly why families flock to Crete for a relaxing, kid-friendly beach vacation. Do make time to drag yourself away from the water, though, in order to explore Greece’s largest island. Take a hike through the mountains, visit the fabled birthplace of Zeus and tour one of the villages that date back to the Bronze Age.

This combination of exploration and relaxation makes Crete one of the best destinations in Greece. Opt for one of the many family-centered resorts that are prevalent in Crete — you’ll love the kid-friendly, laid-back atmosphere and onsite amenities.
