“Crete broke all tourism records in 2022, despite the absence of Russian tourists, who are one of its main markets, and despite the fact that it is mainly a summer destination. In addition, it showed an increase in air seats by 17% compared to last year, both for domestic and international routes,” Hosteltur writes in the magazine.

“In terms of accommodation, it is the destination with the second most competitive average hotel price offered for the coming months. Finally, Crete collects 57% of the comments for active tourism, for activities in nature and for wellness tourism.”
