VENETIAN TRAILS AND EXOTIC BEACHES
On the New Road, the bus takes you west through the outskirts of Chania to the port of Kissamos. Here you go on a boat which will sail for about an hour in the amazing bay, against a stunning backdrop of steep cliffs and rocks, incredible secluded beaches, and the infinite blue. The boat will approach the little Island Gramvousa with its imposing Venetian castle and breathtaking views. After 2 hours of stay the boat will take you to the lagoon of Balos. The fabulous clear water of the lagoon and the white coral sand makes an irresistible paradise for all guests. Balos is listed as one of the best beaches in the world. After 2 hours the boat will take you back to Kastelli where the bus waits to pick you up.
Good to know: Walking shoes are necessary (for the climb to the castle)
PEARL OF THE WEST
After 2 hours heading West, the bus turns toward the South into the heart of Crete.
At our first stop at a small taverna you will have the opportunity to have breakfast and/or a coffee. A 30 minute ride will take you to the Monastery of Chryssoskalitissa. From here it is just a small ride to reach the Libyan Sea and the main goal of this tour, the beautiful beach of Elafonissi – the most westerly point of Crete. Here you have 3 hours to swim in the crystal waters and enjoy the beautiful sandy beach and its surrounding nature.
On the way back before reaching the National road we will stop at the beautiful cave of Agia Sofia with its chapel, where you can also relax and have a refreshing drink or cup of coffee in a tavern nearby. Following the New Road you will be taken back to your hotels.
