A visit to Vai is a must if you visit Crete. The combination of a majestic beach and a rare palm forest creates an exotic flair .

According to a legend, Arab pirates who arrived on the beach threw the cores of the dates they were eating and 5000 palm trees grew from them.

Camping is not allowed in the night in the forest, which covers an area of 60 hectars and is protected by the Forest Authority. The beach is organized and has been awarded the Blue Flag of the European Union. It is a tropical beach with fine sand and pebbles, as well as crystal clear waters. It is located at a distance of 6 km from Palaikastro and 24 km from Siteia.
