Monastery dedicated to Saint. John was founded by a magnate named Prevelis from whose name he gained the colloquial name of Preveli (Greek: Πρέβελη). The beach, located a short distance from this monastery, attracts numerous groups of tourists who want to rest in the vicinity of the palm grove growing on the Megalopotamos estuary. How the access to the monastery looks like presents the following video.
Today we invite you to the next sunset that we shot last year in Crete. This time you will be able to see the end of the day above the city of Sitia, located in the eastern end of the island. A part of the film was shot by a time-lapse technique allowing for a significant acceleration of the sunset.
Drive by car on a gravel road leading to Tripiti beach. It is in vain to look for information about this beach in traditional paper guides. It is not surprising, therefore, that this place is overlooked by mass tourism and the vast majority of people relaxing on this beach are local Greeks. We wish you nice watching ... the road is really "interesting".
We would like to take you on our journey through Crete. We have tried to capture a considerable part of the places that we visited during our holiday this year in a short film, not much longer than 3 minutes. Certainly, some of them are well known to you and you will recognize them flawlessly. However, we think that even for the greatest experts in Crete, some of the places will be interesting puzzles.
