Which? Shorts podcast: Hidden Crete - more than just a beach holiday

Listen to our podcast as we head off the beaten track in Crete, finding out what makes it a standout choice for UK travellers heading to Greece

The second episode of the new Which? Shorts podcast takes a look at the hidden side of the Greek island, Crete, which has much more to offer than just a beach holiday

Which? Shorts features bite-size advice articles from experts across the whole spectrum of Which? content. You can listen to our latest in-depth features from our family of magazines. Hand picked and curated, they offer original insight on a whole range of topics that influence and impact our lives.

In this episode James Stewart heads to Crete, one of the largest Greek islands - and an incredibly popular destination for UK tourists. But beyond the buzzing holiday resorts lies another Crete altogether. James discovers what the area has to offer those who steer clear of the traditional tourist hotpots. And, a few miles away from the usual beaches and bars he finds a culinary adventure, crowd-free ancient ruins, plus the lesser-known beach resorts that locals love. 

We’ll bring you new episodes of the Which? Shorts podcast each Wednesday, all hosted by our team of journalists. 

Listen wherever you get your podcasts.


We surveyed more than 1,300 Which? members to find the best Greek islands.
