How to split 7 days in Crete??

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have one week to spend in Crete this summer. We are in our late twenties and love beaches and food. We are taking a ferry from Naxos and are arriving in Herkaloin. Our plane leaves out of Chania one week later.

Here's our tentative itinerary:
stay in Rethymnon(1 or 2 nights?), then head to Chania for a few nights, spend two nights towards Falasarna or Elafonisi beach area and then head back to Chania for our final night.

Does this seem like a good plan? We plan on renting a car once we get to Chania. Should we stay in Rethymnon 1 or 2 nights? Are there any other regions we missing and need to check out? We realize we can't see the entire island in a week.
