On this island, you can’t flush the toilet paper. 

This is because much of the Crete’s sewage systems are installed by the use of small pipes that simply cannot cope with it and it can lead to a blockage.

After using the toilet paper, you have to place it in a bin. Everywhere on the island, you will always see a “no paper in here please” sign in the toilets.

Being a first-time visitor in Crete Island, this is a culture shock but hey, when in Rome, do as the Romans do! Just take the scented wipes with you.
