This day starts with a drive along the north coast towards the town Kastelli-Kissamos which lies in the very west of Crete. There we will continue our trip by sailing around the peninsula of Gramvousa. This cruise combines two destinations: The Island Gramvousa where you can climb 137 meters to visit the Venetian Fortress (late 16th century). From its walls you can enjoy a stunning view over the wide sea. The other destination is the lagoon near the tip of the peninsula, better known as Balos Bay. Here the sand is soft and white and the waters have many different shades of blue and green. This really is one of the best beaches on Crete!
