Crete

Greece

April 19 - May 17, 2024

Oct 18 - Nov 17, 2024

We are back - again! We're excited to dip our toes for the 3rd time into the warm turquoise waters of this mystical Greek island, Crete! Last time, we loved it so much that we decided to stay longer to explore it's hidden beaches, ancient architecture and landscapes, weaving in lively cities and dreamy villages, where locals share their traditions, delicious Greek cuisine and generous spirit. Paired with ideal coliving, an inspiring coworking setup, and of course our down-to-earth badass Tribers, this chapter promises to be yet another epic adventure.

Experience Crete with the Tribe

Take on Crete with the Tribe and discover a new side to Greece. Open your mind to the co-created community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.

1. Explore the Colorful Streets

Crete is the perfect balance of cultural and historical immersion to bring you back in time. Think breezy aperitivo lunches in local seaside tavernas, the wild juxtaposition of ancient historical ruins, iconic Greek islands, and the colorful local culture in small towns

2. Swim on Balos Beach

The Bay of Balos is simply stunning and is one of the iconic pictures of western Crete. The water here is beautiful jade color and is always crystal clear. It is also a nature reserve for birds, sea turtles, and the Mediterranean seal.

3. Big, big nature..and lots of it!

No island in Greece does dramatic quite like Crete. Mountain ranges have risen across the island, with cloud-piercing tips sending water cutting through the limestone terrain to leave a legacy of more than 400 canyons and gorges.

4. Afterwork: Ocean Edition

Pamper yourself with a unique experience to dive into the crystal clear waters around the island. Enjoy a majestic sunset on the water, taste local Cretan wine, and take unforgettable pictures on the upper deck overlooking the sea during sunset.

5. Wander through the exotic palm grove of Preveli Lake

Believe it, or not - one of Europe’s most exotic landscapes is found in Crete. With its palm grove, saltwater lagoon, and dramatic Cretan gorge as scenery, Preveli beach takes exotic to a whole new level. Take a walk or ride along the river, through the palm trees and the oleanders to the gorge.

6. Lounge at the Beach of Elafonissi

Throw on your shades, shorts, and hit the clear turquoise waters of Elefanoissi (and the numerous other beaches down the coastline!) for days of paradise along the coast. Elafonissi Beach in particular is known for it's pink sand and crystal clear water. This is the place for the quintessential Greek beach experience!

Meet the Chapter Host for April

Natasha

"Hey there~ I’m Natasha!  

Born and raised in Montréal, I’m a free spirit who left my career in finance for a life less ordinary. What started as a work sabbatical led to almost 2 years of nonstop travel and living the life I always dreamed of.
I’m a nature and animal lover who’s always down for scuba diving or hiking, but also live music, game nights and dancing! 

Truly grateful to be a WiFi Tribe Host and excited to meet and learn more about each and every one of you in our community! Connecting with new people in new places makes for the best memories and I look forward to our shared adventures!"

Good to Know

This chapter is an outdoor-lover's paradise. If you love hiking, swimming, boating, and daily excursions, this is the chapter for you. If you're looking for city-vibes, this may not be your preferred location.


Siesta is a thing in Crete too! Businesses in town are typically open from 8 am to 2 pm and then again in the afternoon from 5 to 9 pm.


The town of Koutsouras is in the southern part of Crete, which is the warmer part of the island at an average of 19 -24 degrees. It can get chillier at night.


Renting cars is advisable for exploring the island and accessing the larger towns nearby, but the landlord can also help facilitate vans and drivers for day-to-day activities.
