The south coast of the island is definitely best for rocky shoreline and superb viz! Don't expect carribean type corals of marine life though. Quite "dead" looking surfaces but there is life to be found

Beautiful Balos and Gramvousa. Climb to fort took 15 minutes. Fabulous views from the top. Some lovely coves to swim and snorkel. Clean clear waters. Small wreck to snorkel through.

George went above and beyond. It seemed that in any given moment when we needed something, he was right there before we even considered asking for it. Don't hesitate!

Great way to beat the crowds to Balos and Gramvousa Island. Much better than one of the crowded ferry boats. We got a personal experience with a great skipper.

Balos Bay and Gramvoussa were wonderful - this is the best way to visit Balos and Grancoussa. George was an accommodating host and we would highly recommend.

Was nice to be in less crowded touristic places, more known by locals. The water was crystal blue and we really enjoyed swimming in the little caves.

We anchored in Dias Island and Marathi cove, There we could bath in a very quiet and beautiful sea. We spent the vening discussing and looking at the stars. Then we went in Chania, a nice and colored city. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars with local music. We rented a car and went from there to Elafonisi, an incredible lagoon with clear water and rose sand. On the return trip, we stopped in Rethymnon, a dynamic balnear station with beaches, restaurants and bars where we spent happy moments. Finally we spent the last night again in Dias island. We enjoyed very much our vacations. Anne and Paolo Cremasco

Kofunisi is like an karibien iland. So many extraordenary places there. Oure captain Thanasi showed us the most beautiful places. We went to Ios and Sikinos. Most by sailing without Motor. So we had a lot of Practice. We were involved in every habor maneuver. So we learnd a lot about sailing.

I went with my family to Crees on summer holidays. It is a perfect destination for summer. The Greek food is very good, is not expensive, and Elafonissi and Balos are a very good beaches. I recommend to stay Chania because is a very Mediterranean city.

La atención de los patrones fue maravillosa. Y el cuidado en los detalles increíble. Fue un viaje precioso y estamos muy agradecidos de haberlo disfrutado a bordo de este maravilloso velero con dos personas tan amables como Sakis e Evie.

Le lagon de balos est accessible par voiture mais avec un chemin en terre bondé de vehicules ou par bateau avec des personnes entassés qui debarquent sur de petites chaloupes. Visiter cette plage avec un bateau particulier est l idéal.

На КРИТЕ надо плыть на Балос или дальше на другие острова. Вокруг Ираклиона на день путешествия красот мало. Пожалуй то

elfonissi, balos, gramvousa, vai, et toutes les villes (héraklion, malia, rethymon, la canée...) Bel accueil des habitants, bonne gastromie pour pas trop chère, possibilité de manger à toutes heures...

Our boat rental was great but the coastline around Port of Souda was not as pretty as other parts of Greece. However this meant that there were very few small boats so we had the small coves to ourselves.

Die vom Vermieter empfohlene Route ist wunderschön. Es gibt traumhafte Anker- und Anlegestellen mit Stränden unterschiedlichen Charakters. Dazu malerische Tavernen zum Beispiel am Marmara Beach!
