Golf Course
“The Crete Golf Club is located east of Heraklion, the capital city of Crete and in close distance to Chersonisos, one of the most important seaside resorts in Greece. The location of the Crete Golf Club in the valley of the river Aposelemis is on the diachronically main road connecting the, Ancient and Byzantine, city of Chersonisos on the north coast of Crete with the hinterland of the island, prominent settlements (like the ancient city Lyttos), and fertile areas in Kastelli plain and Lassithi Plateau. It is important to underline the dynamics of landscape imprinted in significant monuments in the region, namely Ancient, Byzantine and Modern ones.”

Park
“Elafonisi is one of the most popular attractions in Crete for a good reason. Located 76km west of Chania it is a place of magnificent beauty and majestic scenery of turquoise waters, sand dunes covered with sand lilies. The name means “Deer Island” but in fact the Elafonisi is a sandy cape that the water cuts in half, creating a sand dune island and a lagoon. The water depth is never more than 1m and it is very easy to walk to the “island”. Elafonisi is a Natura 2000 protected area.”

City
“The Koules is a fortress located at the entrance of the old port of Heraklion, Crete, Greece. It was built by the Republic of Venice in the early 16th century, and is still in good condition today. Many people go there to walk, run , bike or take their dogs for a walk. If you want to see it from the inside I think there is a ticket you have to pay. Otherwise you can see it from the outside and have a walk at the port.”
