Full-Day Trip's Highlights: We set sail from Chania's Old Harbour at 10:00 a.m. We arrive at the crystal clear waters of Maherida beach in less than an hour. You may swim or snorkel there to see the underwater beauties. Maherida is a reminder of the absolute beauty of the Cretan coastline, with its little shore hidden from the wind and untouched by man.
Our sailing trip continues to the lovely island of Thodorou, where you may swim and snorkel while sightseeing the endangered species and Cretan wild goat, Kri Kri. Meanwhile, under the shade of the boat tent, the captain will prepare a light snack to be enjoyed with wine or beer.

About the Crete (location Intro): Crete is Greece's largest island, located in the Aegean Sea to the south. Crete offers a breathtakingly gorgeous landscape with high mountains, gorges, small and well-protected bays, and stunning rocky and sandy beaches.
About the Chania (location Intro): Chania is one of Greece's most popular tourist destinations, attracting millions of visitors each year. Chania is the second biggest city on the island of Crete and is located in the northwestern part of the island.
For more than 5.000 years, it has been a crossroads for sailors, traders, and pirates due to its position. Venetians, Turks, Egyptians, Jews, and Arabs, among others, have left their imprint on the city's architecture, culture, and economic progress over the years. Chania is constructed around the historic Venetian town, with its winding alleyways, beautiful buildings, and medieval walls.
The enormous public market in Chania's center offers a diverse choice of local items, but the major attraction is the scenic Old Venetian Harbour, which has the famed lighthouse that has stood out for generations.
Best beaches in Chania:
North: There are Souda Bay and the beaches of Almirida, Kalives, Loutraki, Marathi and Stefanou (Seitan Limania) from east to west.
Stavros, Maherida, Kalathas, Agii Apostoli, Agia Marina, Platanias, Afrata, and Menies are among the beaches in Chania Bay with the islands Thodorou and Lazaretta. Agios Pavlos, Ravdouha, and Nopigia beaches, as well as Kissamos Bay.
West: Balos lagoon and Gramvousa island, Falasarna, Elafonissi, and Kedrodasos are the islands from north to south.

West: Elafonissi beach is in the south-west of Chania, reachable by car, bus or boat. Blue and turquoise waters, white pinkish sand and the beautiful Natura 2000 protected area compose a landscape of unique beauty. It has shallow and warm waters, ideal for children although most of the time it is very crowded and not good when it is windy.
Falasarna on the west of Chania is one the best beaches in Greece and one of the top 10 in Europe. The long and wide organized beach with the white sand and crystal clear waters is very popular among locals but never too crowded. Because it is exposed to wind and the high waves it is surfers paradise.
The paradise of Balos lagoon and Gramvousa island is on the edge of Gramvousa peninsula north-west of Chania. It is the most popular beach in Crete and although it is isolated it is very crowded. You go there by boat or after driving on a dirt road and 20? downhill walking. The turquoise waters, wild nature and exotic scenery make Balos the most photographed beach in Crete and cover for many tourist guides and magazines.
