Crete, the largest Greek island, lends itself to a unique boating adventure. Circumnavigating the island may take you ten days to two weeks, but a boat hire in Crete is worth the trouble as you will have the opportunity to discover remote beaches and beautiful coves. Your trip can start in Chania, arguably the island’s most beautiful city on its northwest side. Its medieval architecture will enchant you, while its beaches will remind of you of exotic places in the Carribean and the local cuisine will please your sense.
Chania can be the starting point of a cruise along Crete’s long coast. With a boat hire in Chania you can sail westwards towards one of the Mediterranean Sea’s most beautiful beaches, Balos, located in a lagoon accessible mainly by boat. It’s a sandy beach on the westernmost tip of Crete, famous for its crystal clear waters and idyllic setting. You can then head southwest towards Palaiochora and Agia Roumeli, both equally picturesque and beautiful. The rugged beauty of the small town of Chora Sfakion will take your breath away, while a visit to the nearby village of Loutro – accessible only by boat – is a most if you opt for a yacht charter in Chania. And if you want to sail the extra mile, head even farther south to the small islet of Gavdos – Greece’s and Europe’s southernmost point!
