With so much to do, family holidays in Crete are becoming increasingly popular. Spend your days relaxing on the warm sands of the beach, take a fun family trip to the water parks or visit historic and cultural sites and towns.
At Sovereign we understand just how important family holidays are, which is why we carefully curate our collection of hotels, ensuring each one matches our exacting standards. Our Personal Travel Planners are travel experts with years of experience who will help you find the perfect place for your family getaway. Whether your little ones want to make lots of new friends and join in all the activities and games in the kids’ clubs or prefer to simply relax with a book, we have you covered.
Spend your days on the wonderful beaches of the town or book the whole family onto a boat trip and explore the nearby islands. If you prefer to stick to land there are 4x4 trips and off-road tours as well. Those wanting to explore the town itself will find a tractor train which tours you around the pretty streets, or exploring on foot is easy. If you prefer to enjoy water sports there are lots to choose from on the beach.
The onsite restaurants serve up a delicious selection of dishes just for children, and ice cream is served by the pool during happy hour. Kids also receive a surprise box on arrival, and there are colouring books, games and activities for children as well.
Make the most of the incredible children’s facilities. These include a Crèche, an all day club for children and tweens and a teenager’s club which offers some fantastic activities and games. There is even a soccer school for those wanting to take lessons.
Book the whole family onto a Jeep Safari and explore this stunning island and its beautiful scenery. Alternatively, try some of the water sports on offer and discover the incredible animals that live underwater. Just off the coast you’ll find turtles, colourful fish and reefs which can all be found with scuba diving and snorkelling trips. Whatever you choose, Gouves is a fantastic choice for your family holiday in Crete.
The Kids’ Club is full of activities and facilities, including games and toys, crayons, paints and more. There are also costumes and arts and crafts classes. Plus teens can enjoy volleyball, golf, football, Greek dancing, surfing and lots more.
Whether you’re looking for culture or a relaxing family break choose Aghios Nikolaos. Visit the Olive Oil Farm and learn how it’s produced on the pretty farm, visit Lake Voulismeni and admire the stunning views and crystal clear waters or tour the many pretty, whitewashed churches in the area.
