In 2010, when Preveli beach was largely destroyed by the fire that raged there , it seemed that for a long time this place would be removed from the group of the greatest attractions of Crete. The sticky stumps of palm trees that remained from the old grove presented a very depressing view. Today we have the opportunity to present you a film from our this year's expedition to this beach. Find out how to regenerate nature yourself.
Of course, when visiting this beach, it is worth visiting the nearby monastery, which, apart from the beautiful location and magnificent views, also has a very interesting history. It is worth mentioning that the monastery signed up on the pages of World War II. In 1941, it became the place of evacuation of the Allied forces, which were submerged to Egypt by means of submarines.
While the arrival to Crete is one of the most enjoyable moments of vacation it is definitely hard to say the same about the departure. This moment marks the definitive end of the summer and goodbye to Crete. Today we would like to present you a short film from our this year's takeoff from the airport. Ioannis Daskalogiannis. In the further part of the film you can see the shots of the Akrotiri peninsula and Chania.
Elafonisi is a small island located on the south-western tip of Crete. Pink sand and a large lagoon with warm water attracts tourists in the holiday season. From the side of Kissamos, the most popular way of getting to this beach is through the Gorge of Topolia and along the western end of Crete.
Of course, you can get to Loutro by ferry from Chora Sfakion, but we again set a slightly more ambitious plan and we passed a part of the E4 route between these towns. An additional advantage of this solution is the opportunity to see the amazing Glyka Nera beach, ie Słodka Woda.
