4-5 Days in Crete: The Ultimate Itinerary (+ My Tips)


Itinerary: How to Spend 4 or 5 Days in Crete

You’re planning to spend 4 or 5 days in Crete for your next trip?

Great idea!

In order to help you plan your stay, I have prepared a detailed itinerary to visit Crete in 4-5 days and see all the must see attractions of this charming Greek island.

I addition to the best places to visit each day, I will also give you all my best tips as well as a list of the best places to stay in Crete depending on your budget.

So, what are the best things to do during your 4-5 days trip to Crete? Where to stay?

Let’s plan your trip!

What are the things to do and see in Crete in 4 or 5 days?

Crete being a large island, it has 2 international airports: Chania and Heraklion.

This is why I propose different itineraries depending on your arrival airport:

  • To visit West Crete in 4 or 5 days, you should land in Chania
  • To visit East Crete in 4-5 days, it is best to land directly in Heraklion.

You can compare flight prices at the end of this article, in the “How to get to Crete” section .

Arrival in Chania – West Crete

Day 1: Chania

For this first 4-5 day tour of Crete, you will arrive at Chania. 

To complete the schedule I have planned and visit West Crete in 4-5 days, you can choose to rent a car or opt for organised trips with included transport.

For those who choose to rent a car, you must compare all the rates and make your reservation on the Rentalcars website.

It is really the most practical option and it also offers the possibility to take out a comprehensive insurance which covers expenses in case of an accident or theft (cheaper than that offered by the rental company at the counter).

La Canée port Vénitien
Chania Venetian port

To visit Chania in 1 day, you must start with the covered market which is actually a mix of souvenir shops and stalls selling local produce: raki, cheese, olive oil…

As you leave the market, you will be in the heart of the old town, where you can stroll through the typical alleys lined with local handicraft shops, bars and restaurants. Then walk up to the Greek Orthodox cathedral, where you can admire the interior for free, and head back up to the Old Venetian Port.

The place is really beautiful with small houses with colourful facades and its restaurants with terraces by the water.

To the left of the Old Port is a large brick-coloured building: Fort Firkas. As you pass under the entrance arch, you can enter the inner courtyard and go to the ramparts for free to enjoy the view of the port and the lighthouse of Chania, the symbol of the city.

The interior of the fort is has the maritime museum of Crete, which exhibits navigational instruments and model boats. Entrance fee: €3.

Then retrace your steps and walk along the Old Port to the other side, passing by:

  • Kiutsouk Hasan mosque (recognisable by its pink dome)
  • The great Venetian arsenal
  • The ancient boat hangars 

You can then leave the seaside and return to the historical centre to see: the church of San Rocco, the church of Agios Nikolaos and the minaret.

You will have completed a circuit and be back near the covered market.

Spend the first night in Chania (my hotel recommendations are a little further down in the article).

Voyage Tips - Advice

To walk the typical streets and discover the history of Chania, you should opt for a guided tour. There are 2 types of tours available (click on the orange links for detailed information):

To make sure you don’t miss out on the interesting spots in Chania, check out our article: The 15 things to discover in Chania.

Chania Crete
Visiting Chania – 4-5 days in Crete

Day 2: Balos lagoon

For the second day of this 4 or 5 day stay in Crete, you will discover one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Head for the lagoon of Balos where you can relax in the translucent waters and a heavenly setting.

To reach Balos from Chania, if you have rented a car, you have 2 options:

  • Drive all the way to the lagoon car park. 

But you should know that on the last 8 km (just after passing the security hut where you have to pay €1/pers for entry), the road turns into a track. You will need to be careful to avoid being hit by stones broken by other cars and the big potholes.

Not to mention that you don’t want to get your tyre stuck or have an accident because no rental company agrees to insure vehicles on this stretch of road. If you have a problem, you’ll have to fend for yourself.

Another important point: after 11:00am, the car park in Balos fills up quickly and you will have to park along the track. The line of cars can stretch for several hundred metres, which means you have to be prepared to walk to get to the beach.

Indeed, from the car park, you will have to make one last effort to get down to Balos: a 1.2 km path. It’s easy in the morning when you arrive, but later when you are getting back at the end of the day, it’s not so easy. 😅

Avoid taking giant unicorn buoys, coolers, or parasols (you can rent deckchairs/sunshades for €10 for 2) and don’t go in flip-flops.

  • Go to Kissamos (38 km miles away from Chania) and take the boat to Balos.

If you’re worried about your car or you don’t want to walk to the lagoon, I have good news: you can choose a boat trip.

As I said, the boats leave from the small port of Kissamos. You will first sail to the island of Gramvoussa which is just before Balos for a 2-hour stop where you can swim or climb to the summit where there is a fortress in ruins.

The boat then sets off after for about ten minutes and stops at Balos for the rest of the day. You will be dropped off right in front of the lagoon and you will also enjoy a beautiful sea-side walk!

In the late afternoon, the boat will take you back to Kissamos and you can take your car back to Chania.

This cruise must be booked in advance by clicking on the button below:

Balos Lagoon – A must-see in Crete!

If you didn’t want to rent a car for this 4-5 day itinerary in Crete, don’t worry, you can also go to Balos.

To do this, just click on the green button below to book your return trip by bus and boat to Balos. The bus will pick you up in front of your hotel (or nearby) and take you to Kissamos.

From there, you will board the same boat that is on the cruise I just told you about.

Upon your return to Kissamos at the end of the day, the bus will wait to take you back to your accommodation. Everything is really well organised to spend a stress-free day.

Reservations can be made here:

No matter which option you choose to go to Balos Beach, spend another night in Chania.

Voyage Tips - Advice

I explain more about Balos in my article dedicated to the beach: My guide to visit the lagoon of Balos.

If you feel like a romantic day or have decided to go 4-5 days in Crete with your family/friends, you must choose one of the following private cruises:

Day 3: Hiking at the Samaria Gorge

On the third day of this 4-5 day trip to Crete, you will put on your hiking shoes to discover one of the longest Gorges in Europe: the Samaria Gorge.

One clarification: Samaria National Park is only open from May 1st to October 15th.

The start of the trail is 1 hour away by car (or bus) from Chania, near the place called Xyloskalo. There is a paid car park at the entrance of the national park for €5 a day, but you can also park for free on the roadside.

Entrance to the Gorge is also €5 per person.

You will start at an altitude of 1230 metres and go down to sea level during this 16 km hike . Depending on your endurance and photo breaks + stop for lunch, it will take an average of 5 to 7 hours of walking. 

You should start the hike at 10:00 am. You don’t need to carry too much stuff because you will find several drinking water points along the way, as well as rest areas and toilets.

Samaria Crète
Samaria Crete

Here are some hints on what awaits you:

  • A 4 km steep slope at the start – Be careful not to slip as this is the most accident prone area. The stones roll under your feet and the stairs are made slippery by people using them.
  • From km 7, after the main rest area where you can stop for a small picnic, you enter the bottom of the Gorge.
  • At km 11, you pass through the narrowest place of the Gorge, called “The Iron Gates”.
  • You leave the Gorge at km 13 and can take a shuttle bus for €2/pers at km 14 to cover the last 2 km
  • Km 16: end of the hike in the village of Agia Roumeli.

To return to the car park, you will then have to completeseveral steps:

  • Take one of the 2 boats that leave from Agia Roumeli at 5pm or 5.30pm and take between 45 minutes and 1h to reach the village of Sougia. Tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking here , at the tavern next to the car park and at the ticket office in Agia Roumeli.
  • From Sougia, a one hour bus ride to the car park. Tickets can be booked in advance by clicking here, at the car park tavern, or directly at the ticket office in Sougia.

I have given a you much more detailed explanation about the Gorge in my dedicated article. For more information, click here: How to visit the Samaria Gorge?

Spend a third night in Chania.

Day 4: The pink sands beach of Elafonissi

For the fourth day of this 4-5 day Crete itinerary, you should go to the Elafonissi beach for a quiet day. After the efforts made yesterday, you need a well deserved rest.

Access is much easier than for Balos as you will just have to park on the large free car park and walk 5 minutes to reach the waterfront.

This beach, located about 90 minutes by car from Chania, is famous for the pink colour of its sand because of the shells of certain crustaceans.

It can only be seen at the water’s edge and not on the whole beach, but the contrast with the turquoise colour is really beautiful.

Elafonissi is divided into 2 parts:

  • The main beach is located next to the car park and you can rent deckchairs and parasols there. This is the busiest place.
  • Elafonisi island is located opposite the beach and is accessed by crossing the lagoon. You will find beautiful little coves and the famous pink sand but with far fewer people.

In the afternoon, you can also get to another beautiful beach that is still quite untamed, that of Kedrodasos. To do this, go back up by car for 5 minutes and walk down for about ten minutes.

Return to Chania at the end of the day.

Voyage Tips - Advice

All the practical information about Elafonissi can be found in my article: Visit Elafonissi beach. 

As for Balos and Samaria, you can book your return trip by bus from Chania to Elafonissi:


Day 5: The surroundings of Chania

For the last day of this 4-5 days road trip in Crete, you have several options.

1) Discover the Akrotiri peninsula, about 10 km from the centre of Chania.

Among the places of interest to see during the day, you must go to:

  • Stavros beach
  • The Agia Triada monastery, one of the best known monasteries to see in 4 or 5 days in Crete
  • The Governto Monastery  
  • The ruins of Katholiko monastery
  • Seitan Limani beach, also considered one of the most famous beaches on the island
  • Marathi beach.

2) Visit Rethymnon, a very nice little town 1h from Chania.

You can walk around the historical centre and visit the Koules fortress. 

I have explained everything in my article: The best things to see and do in Rethymnon?

During the way there or on the way back, you should stop at Kournas lake. You can swim or rent a paddle boat and see sea turtles.

Arrival in Heraklion – East Crete

Day 1: Heraklion

Here is my second idea for a 4-5 day stay in Crete but this time to visit the East of the island with an arrival in Heraklion.

Just like the Chania itinerary, you can use Rentalcars to book your car. Simply click on the button below to compare the rates of the rental companies at Heraklion airport:

For this day in Heraklion, you must follow this itinerary (don’t worry if you don’t have time to do everything, you can make up for it in the following days).

There’s nothing better to start this 4-5 day journey in Crete than to discover the history of the island. To do this, go to the historical museum of Crete, which recounts the important events that took place from the Byzantine period to the 20th century.

Entrance to the museum costs 5 and you will also have an audio guide in English.

Leaving the museum, go to the Koules fortress, a 5 min walk from the seaside. Here too, the exhibit inside is devoted to history but is more focused on the city and the fort.

You can also walk around the ramparts to enjoy views of the harbour and Heraklion.

The entrance to the fortress costs €4.

Héraklion – Best places to visit in Crete in 4-5 days

To continue your tour of Heraklion, you must explore the old town on foot.

From the fortress, you must head to the main shopping street “25 Avgoustou” and take a walk in the classic streets nearby.

You will see:

  • Agiou Titou square where the church is located
  • The Town Hall
  • Saint Mark’s Basilica
  • The Morosini Lions Fountain
  • The rue 1866.

You will then find yourself next to the archaeological museum of Heraklion. Even if you’re not too much of a museum lover, it’s worth going there because it’s the most visited museum on the island.

It houses an impressive collection of objects from the Neolithic period to the Roman period. You can also admire all the vestiges discovered on the site of the Palace of Knossos (next visit of the day) and dating from the Minoan civilisation.

The museum is modern and the objects are well presented, with explanatory panels in English.

To conclude this first day, you can finish at the archaeological site of Knossos, the best known in all of Crete.

You can stroll among the ruins of this Minoan city that once hadroyal apartments, residences of officials and priests, warehouses, thermal baths…

However, there isn’t much left of it and most of the frescoes on display are copies. The originals are displayed in the archaeological museum.

Knossos is located about 5 km from the centre of Heraklion, so I recommend that you go there by car (large car park on site) or by bus (bus no. 2 at a stop 200 metres from the museum).

All the details about the places of interest to visit in Heraklion can be found in my other article: The best things to see and do in Heraklion?

And you can find all the practical information about Knossos here: How to visit the Palace of Knossos?

Spend the first night in Heraklion (you will find my selection of the best hotels in the city a little further down).

Voyage Tips - Advice

If you want to visit the museum and Palace of Knossos, remember to buy your combined ticket (+audioguide) in advance to avoid queues.

You can find it by clicking on the green button below:

Day 2: Rethymnon and its surrounding areas

For the second day of this 4 or 5 day itinerary in Crete, you must visit the very charming little town of Rethymnon, a 70 minute drive from Heraklion.

If you have not rented a car, you can take the bus from Heraklion bus station. There’s one every hour. You can check the timetable here: KTEL Bus Heraklion – Rethymnon.

Upon arrival in Rethymnon, you can start by exploring its Venetian fortress which costs €4.

Then go through the tiny Venetian port lined with restaurants and reach the heart of the old town of Rethymnon. Walking through these alleys, you will pass by:

  • The Rimondi fountain
  • The Neratze Mosque
  • The old Venetian houses with their wooden loggia
  • The workshop of the last filo pastry maker on the island
  • Rethymnon Archaeological Museum
  • Grand gate
  • The Four Martyrs Church
  • Veli Pasha   mosque and   Kara Mussa mosque.

To find out more about these places, please read my article: The 13 best things to do in Rethymnon.

La forteresse de Réthymnon
Rethymnon Fortress

After lunch in one of Rethymnon’s traditional Cretan taverns, drive up to the Arkadi monastery.

Located 30 minutes from the city, the monastery has a great historical importance for the island’s inhabitants. Besieged by 2,000 soldiers under the Ottoman occupation, the monks and Cretans who had taken refuge there preferred to set fire to it rather than surrenderit.

Everyone was killed but this act of resistance marked the beginning of the fight against the Ottomans.

During your visit, you can discover its 16th century Venetian church, the ancient wine cellars and the museum with its relics.

Entrance to the monastery costs 3€. Ladies, you must have your shoulders and legs covered (this applies to all monasteries).

Arkadi monastery
Arkadi Monastery

After the monastery, continue for 25 minutes and you will arrive at the village of Margarites. This village is renowned for its many pottery shops and workshops.

Here, everything is handmade and each room is unique. If you feel like bringing back a typical souvenir from your 4 or 5 day road trip to Crete, this is the ideal place. And with bowls selling for €3, your wallet won’t take a hit.

To end the day before returning to Heraklion, you must visit the Melidoni cave, 20 minutes from Margarites. For only 4€, you can go down to the cave to admire the stalactites and stalagmites.

In addition to being pretty, the cave (just like the monastery) served as a refuge for the inhabitants of the island during the Ottoman occupation. Unfortunately, the soldiers found them and decided to set fire to the cave to suffocate them. All the Cretans died.

From Melidoni, it takes 1 hour to reach Heraklion, where you will spend another night.

Melidoni cave

Day 3: Spinalonga Island and the Lassithi plateau

On this third day of your 4-5 day holiday in Crete, you must first go to the small seaside resort of Elounda, 70 minutes from Heraklion.

You must reach Elounda by 10 a.m.

At the small marina, you will find the boats that travel to Spinalonga island. There are departures every half hour in peak season and the crossing takes only 1/4 hour. Expect to pay €12 for the return ticket + €8 for the entry ticket on the island.

In the past, Spinalonga first served as a fortress before becoming a leper colony, which is why it is often dubbed “leper island”. 

During the leprosy outbreak, all islanders affected by the disease were sent to Spinalonga where they were left to fend for themselves.

To survive, they themselves created a kind of village with a church, a hospital, houses, taking over the old buildings of the fort.

Spinalonga has become famous thanks to Victoria Hislop‘s novel “The Island”, which tells the story of a young woman’s quest to discover the story of her grandmother who was deported to the island.

Nowadays, it takes around an hour on foot to discover the island and its buildings. In addition to the historical significance, Spinalonga is really very pleasant to walk around and to enjoy beautiful views of the coast.

Spinalonga island – East Crete 4-5 days itinerary

After a lunch break in a tavern by the Elounda sea, if you want to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches to go to Crete in 4-5 days, you mustgo to Kolokitha beach.

It is located on the Elounda peninsula, which can be reached via a 1 km long path. There is no real car park, so you will have to park as you can and walk to the beach, 10 minutes away.

You will discover a magnificent little cove with shallow turquoise waters and fine white sands. You won’t be able to resist taking a dip!

Spend as much time as you want relaxing before heading back to Heraklion. To mix things up a little, don’t take the same route that you took while coming, but go via the Lassithi plateau.

This rural area of the island is home to several traditional stone villages and some interesting places to discover, such as:

  • Panagia Kera Church in Kritsa. Worth seeing for its extremely well preserved frescoes.
  • The Lasinthos Eco Park where you can attend demonstrations of traditional crafts: pottery, weaving, candle making.
  • The cave of Zeus or the “cave on Mount Dicte” where the most famous of the Greek gods was born. You can reach there after a steep 10-minute climb + climbing down a long staircase to access the bottom of the cave. Entrance costs €6.

From the cave, it takes approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes to return to Heraklion, where you will spend another night.

Voyage Tips - Advice

For those who have not rented a car, you can visit Spinalonga and Kolokitha with an organised trip from Heraklion.

You will find all the information about this trip by clicking on the following orange link: Cruise to the famous island of Spinalonga + stop for a swim on the splendid beach of Kolokitha + explore the seaside resorts of Elounda and Agios Nikolaos.

There’s also a trip to visit Lassithi with an English-speaking guide, available here: One-day Land Rover Safari across the Lassithi plateau.

Since both trips last the entire day, you will have to choose one. You can do the other one the next day.

Kolokitha beach

Day 4: Trip to Balos lagoon

For the fourth day, head to the absolutely unmissable place to visit in 4-5 days in Crete: Lagoon of Balos.

I would like to point out that Balos is located 190 km from Heraklion and you should prepare for quite a drive. If you think it’s too far away and you’d rather stay closer, you can definitely select one of the activities that I suggest for day 5.

To make the journey a little shorter, less tiring, and more pleasant, you must go to Balos by boat. Cruises depart from the port of Kissamos, which is a 2 and half hour drive from Heraklion.

You must book this trip in advance by clicking on the green button below:

The boat passes first through the island of Gramvoussa where a it stops for 2 hours, before reaching the lagoon of Balos. Now all that remains is enjoying this heavenly place.

On the agenda: swimming in the clear water and taking a walk to admire the view of the lagoon.

To prepare for your day in Balos, you must read my dedicated article: Visit the lagoon of Balos.

The boat leaves for Kissamos at the end of the day. You will have to return to Heraklion for the night. 

Voyage Tips - Advice

The bus will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Kissamos.
