Telegraph: The Top-10 beach hotels in the Greek islands. Two of them on Crete

Telegraph published an insider’s guide to the top beach hotels in the Greek Islands, including the best for watersports, family-friendly coves, sea views, sunsets and spas, in locations such as Mykonos, Corfu, Crete, Rhodes and Hydra.

6. St Nicholas Bay, Crete

With superb views over Mirabéllo Bay from its landscaped grounds, this stone-clad building is on Crete’s Nisi peninsula. The sandy coastline is limited to one little cove – flanked mostly by a terraced lido below the beach bar – but there’s a full watersports programme, scuba school on-site (accepting children over eight) and charterable 34-foot sailing boat (€850/day for up to 12 people). The cove is very sheltered and safe.

9. Minoa Palace, Crete

Beachside, especially so since the annexe – a somewhat austere building but better shielded from road noise – was built. Guests now have immediate access to the north-facing beach, which gets a good surf. Choose from 14 categories of rooms, including those with mountain or sea views, bungalows with private pools and Suite 301, with its giant veranda lookins out to the Ágii Theódori islet. Don’t miss the luxurious basement spa.
