Beaches of Crete Feb 23

Here you can find some of the most astonishing beaches and coasts of our island. Martsalo – Mesara This is where Apostle Paul has disembarked on his journey to Rome and has preached Christianism for the first time. At the middle of a gorge one can see a church of Saint Mary, nested in a cave, dating from the first Christian years. Hrissi Island (Gaidouronissi) – Ierapetra A destination proposed in all tourist guides and not in vain. Little boats depart daily from Ierapetra to carry visitors some seven miles south, to a small island covered with cedar-trees and surrounded by perfect beaches where the sand is pink, composed of sea-shell fragments. Tsoutsouras – Southern Heraklio Inner tourism from the surrounding villages of Crete, little tavernas on the waves which will undertake the mission of frying the fishes just out of the fish-boat; it’s so nice being in Crete in summer time! Balos – Cape of Gramvousa The most famous landscape of Crete and it is definitely worth it. All the shades of blue and green, a warm, shallow lagoon bursting with sea shells.
