Your day-by-day itinerary
Pure relaxation on the south coast
Arrive in the small fishing village of Agia Galini ready to relax for a few days. Spend your mornings deciding how to spend your day over a delicious breakfast at your boutique hotel. After checking in today you can walk straight onto the beach or head to the small streets of the village walking up the hill finding a table at one of the local restaurants tasting the fresh produce of the day.
Happy hippies & palm tree beaches
The next few days are free for you to do as you please. You could take a trip to nearby Matala. In the 1960s, this seaside resort was popular with hippies drawn here by the chalk cliffs with deep caves that surround the beach. Using these caves as a place to sleep many called this beach home. The old center of the village is still car-free so it’s nice and quiet with souvenir shops, cosy bars and a wide choice of restaurants. It’s also worth the drive to Preveli Beach, one of the two remaining primeval palm forests that you will find on Crete. Walk through the palm grove over rocks and along a river that flows straight into the sea. About a short drive or walk from the beach are the beautiful ruins of Preveli Monastery, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the bay.
Departure from Agia Galini
After these days of relaxation, you might be itching for a bit more adventure so can head to the Lassithi plateau and visit the windmills for a rural experience in the mountains or to Chora Sfakion for a hike through the Imbros gorge.
