Conquering Deep Blue

THE OPTIONS FOR EXPLORING THE COASTS OF THE ISLAND ARE ENDLESS.

There are daily boat services to many of the most famous remote beaches, such as Balos, Preveli and Agia Roumeli. Visitors can also take trips to the islands of Chrissi, Gavdos, Dia and Koufonisi. Those looking for more options or seclusion could rent a motor or sailing vessel from the marinas of Lasithi, Heraklion, Rethymnon and Chania and at almost all smaller harbors of the island. Indeed, there are many people combining vacation in Crete with a trip to the magical island of Santorini.

In recent years, the number of visitors who prefer to explore the rugged coastline and the beautiful beaches with canoe kayak has increased. Several companies rent equipment or provide lessons for kayaking. Moreover, at most organized beaches, many companies offer various water sport options such as water skiing, pedaling, aqua-board, jet skiing and parasailing. Lastly, all well-organized beaches host beach volley and beach soccer courts.
