On this unforgettable beach tour we visit the south of Crete and the famous Palm Beach Preveli.
Driving to the South Coast we pass through the wild Kourtaliotis Gorge, where we stop to visit its magnificent waterfalls and the springs of the river Preveli.
Our next stop is the view point above the Palm Beach Preveli, from where you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view and to take some fantastic pictures.
After our photo-stop there we continue to the sandy beach of Damnoni, where our boat is waiting, to take us to our main goal. The exciting boat trip lasts approximately 30 minutes.
The Palm Beach Preveli lies at the south-end of Kourtaliotis Gorge, at the mouth of the river Preveli. The gorge with its vertical cliffs, the mouth of the green river and, especially the unique palm-tree forest, make the place very different and very, very special. Preveli is rightly the most romantic, the most idyllic beach on our island. During our stay there you have enough time to enjoy a splendid swim in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea, to sunbathe and relax, as well as to undertake an adventurous walk through the tropical forest.
Afterwards we take the same boat again, go back to the sandy beach of Damnoni, where we stay for a traditional lunch or for one more enjoyable swim. On the way back to Rethymno we take a different road and drive through the impressive Kotsifou Gorge and through some very old and very typical Cretan villages.
