Summer, sun, be in the open air … In August, the weather is especially often good mood. Why then go away at all, when it’s nice and hot at home? There are many reasons to take a break: freeing one’s head, getting away from the stresses of everyday life, and putting one’s feet in soft, white sand surrounded by quietly rustling palms in the wind. And that’s just three!

No matter where, you will come back with unforgettable memories in your luggage. Leave us in the comments even more tips for the featured countries or other destinations for a holiday in August there, if you have been there before, we look forward to it!

Have you ever been to Crete?

The largest Greek island is beautiful in August, because with an average of almost 30 degrees it is not too hot. Sunbathers get their money’s worth this month, because on average it rains exactly 0 days in this summer month. Crete is incredibly versatile and will inspire you, whether you like to be active or spend the day relaxing on a beautiful beach. The second largest city of Chania in the north is the ideal starting point to explore the island. It’s best to book a rental car, then you’re flexible and you can just stop when you have one of the many wonderful views.

Chania Crete Sfakia

Do not miss the paradisiacal Balos Beach in the west of the island. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this almost unearthly beautiful coastal strip from above! In the south at Chora Sfakia dreamy little coves with partly lonely beaches, small, cute hotels, casinos with the Betfair promo code and typical greek taverns at the seaside await you. Absolutely go here by boat on the coast and make a stop in Lutro!

And then there is the delicious cuisine of Crete, considered one of the healthiest in the world and, in my opinion, one of the tastiest. Lots of fresh fish from the sea, healthy vegetables and of course one or the other Raki (grape brandy) let the taste buds dance and make your stay an experience for all the senses!
