A private Tour with to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world Falassarna , Elafonissi and Milia Mountain !
Falassarna (sometimes written as Phalasarna) is located on the West coast of Crete and, similarly to Elafonissi is popular with day trippers because of its stunning beaches and clear turquoise blue sea.It consists of several sandy beaches of various length, all facing the West (which makes it a wonderful place to watch the sunset from). In Falassarna the sea is generally very clean and with lovely colours because of the sandy bottom.If you are interested in archaeology you can also visit the remains of a fortified Hellenistic harbour. Because of a sudden uplift of the West of Crete 1500 years ago the harbour is now located inland.Because there is a good area of flat fertile land running along the coast, a lot of greenhouses have been erected in the last 20 years or so and Falassarna, especially seen from above as you drive down the hill, is not as beautiful as it once was. But when you are on the beach you won’t notice them anymore!
Elafonisi is an island located close to the southwestern corner of the Mediterranean island of Crete. When the weather is fine it is possible to walk to the island through the shallow water. The island is a protected nature reserve. It is known for its pink sand beaches, created by tidal and wave-induced deposits of pigmented microorganisms living in a symbiotic relationship with native seaweed.
Milia Mountain Retreat is an authentic 17th century mountain settlement which has been transformed into and eco-friendly tourist complex; it seems to have sprouted from the lands of Crete. A glorious location boasting exceptional rugged beauty in the area of Kisamos. Placed among plane trees, chestnut trees, and mountain tops reaching the skies, the area overwhelms visitors with its unique diversity. The philosophy of “back to basics” has found true meaning here.This is a unique experience to escape in a different world. The Milia owners have put a great effort to restore the abandoned village, with a great respect to the environment, and a full organic food served in the tavern.
