All around the course the golfer can enjoy stunning views, both of the mountains and the coastline some ten minutes’ drive away. It is a stunning backdrop to what will be a memorable day.

Nana Golden Beach, as a preferred partner, offers a special discount on green fees for all our guests, who wish to visit the Crete Golf Club. In order to get that discount, please the Front Desk or the guest relations department.
