I would greatly appreciate some guidance. My husband and I are in our late 20s, coming to Crete via Herkalion for 4 nights in early September. We plan to rent a car.
We are old souls, romantics, looking for a beautiful town on a stunning beach for swimming. We plan to visit Knossos and spend the rest of the time in a single accomodation seeing local scenery of which we are not picky (be it nature, churches, marinas/promenades, ruins/architecture etc), relaxing by the beach, eating at fabulous local restaurants, and having a nightcap at a bar/taverna. No clubs or discos, and we don't want too crowded a beach.
I am torn between Matala/Agios/Elounda/Agia Galini and open to any other suggestions.
Could someone please make up my mind for me??
Thank you very much,
