Your local guide will meet you at your preferred location within the Rethymno town region. Your private daytrip will start by heading towards the West side of the island, at the peninsula of Gramvousa.
Driving along the coastal dirt road we will reach the starting point of a short 15 min trek that will lead us to the breathtaking viewpoint towards the Balos lagoon. You will have plenty of time to soak up the beauty of this amazing scenery.
Our following destination will be Falassarna beach. One of the most beautiful beaches in Crete with its wonderful fine white sand and warm, crystal-clear water. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the beach.
There are café-bars on the beach, providing snacks and drinks!
At the end of your tour, our mission will be accomplished – you will leave with enjoyable memories and a much better understanding of breathtaking Cretan nature.
