is definitely for those seeking a small quiet village with a tranquil
beach, away from the big crowds, and simple low- key nightlife. With
relaxation being the essence, this is true bliss for couples or
families coming to Crete to unwind. Holidays in Gerani are
gloriously laid back and leisurely.
The beach is the main focus of a Gerani
Holiday, less developed and rarely crowded its relaxed and peaceful,
the long beach is a mix of sand, shingle and pebbles and is proud to
carry the EU blue flag status. Water-sports and beach volleyball
provide an excellent diversion from lazy days and serious
sun-worshiping. After dark activity is largely centred round a
handful of bars and traditional tavernas, Gerani is not big on buzzy
bars and nightclubs, but if you do fancy some action then head for the
busier resort of Platanias which is only2km away, where you’ll find an
excellent choice of nightlife.
Holidaying in Gerani you ought to take advantage of the local
surrounding countryside, which has several small traditional villages
including the pretty villages of Modi, Vrysis and Loutraki.
Traditional café-bars and tavernas in these true Cretan villages will
provide a nice contrast to the coast and will defiantly enhance your
experience of Crete.
