The Activities Are Endless In Rethymnon
The city of Rethymnon (also referred to as Rethimno, Rethymno, Réthymnon, and Rhíthymnos) can be found on the island of Crete, and you won’t believe how many things there are to do here.
To get the full experience of being in Rethymnon, you need to head on down to Old Town. Get that authentic Crete feel, as you walk down the narrow streets, check out all of the great little shops on the street, and dip into the restaurants and cafes. This area is full of history and is as beautiful as it is interesting. The restaurants range from going somewhere to grab a quick bite to eat, to sitting down at a top-notch restaurant for a romantic dinner with a glass of wine. If you’re looking for a great atmosphere for relaxation, Old Town is it.
But don’t let the relaxation stop there. Let it continue at Baja Beach Club! This sea resort has excellent service, a little something for everybody, like the pool in front of the sea, plenty of bars and restaurants, a whole bunch of padded lounge chairs for relaxing, and waterslides for the kids. It’s a great place to just kick back and spend the day.
If getting around is a pain — which it probably will be — save yourself the headache and use Crete Taxi Service. They’re a highly reputable company, always on time, friendly and their drivers are highly knowledgeable of the area. That will be one less thing that you will have to worry about during your stay.
If you’re looking to tour the island in a fun and unique way, we highly recommend checking out Discovery Quad-Buggy & Jeep Safari. Each customer is shown how operate the quads before being allowed to ride them. The tour will take you down paved paths, but you will also drive across some rugged, off-road paths on your journey. You will get to see the mountains up close and personal, the lake, and all kinds of beautiful, scenic nature. You definitely get your money’s worth, as the excursion will last up to four hours.
For beaches, you’ll have the option to choose between Damoni Beach and Geropotamos Beach. Damoni Beach has a reputation for being a clean beach with crystal clear water, plenty of rocks to jump off of into the water, and access to a nude beach if that’s something you’d be interested in. Prepare for large crowds if you come in-season, though. Geropotamos Beach has almost the same vibe as a private beach. It’s very small, but it’s also very quiet, nice and relaxing. You’ll want to wear water shoes if you visit Geropotamos Beach, as the coastline is rocky.
The nightlife is fantastic in Rethymnon. There are plenty of bars and nightclubs to choose from in the area, such as Eyes Live Lounge, Chaplins, Metropolis Musiclub, and Black Lotus Pub. You really can’t go wrong with any of these establishments. That being said, the Eyes Live Lounge is regarded as the best spot to go at night, due to its top-notch atmosphere, karaoke, two big screen televisions for sports fans, and excellent drinks.
