Hi,

If is a chilled out place you are looking for I would suggest you head to the south coast, perhaps Agia Galini or Plakia. You would have a nice choice of bars and restaurants in either place but not a hectic nightlife. If you do want the latter you would be best heading north in the direction of Hersonnissos / Stalis / Malia.

There are so many places to chose from on Crete that it would possibly be best if you could check out a few of the islands websites and narrow down your villages / resorts to perhaps two or three and then come back here regarding recommendations.

The first thing to say is that you have no need to worry being a single woman in Crete.

You will be treated with respect everywhere you go.

You could do a lot worse than spend your holiday based in Sissi.

Everything there is very low key and friendly.

It would be possible to meet new friends or just enjoy your own company there, whatever you feel comfortable doing.
