  • The beach is on the East of Crete, Vai in the National Park. It is famous for its palm-fringed, in Europe it is the only wild Palm forest. Our way, with the center of the island, ran through the mountains, passing below seascapes. The pictures are beautiful.

  • Nice beach but very expensive and very touristy. Also very busy but worth while to have seen.
