VAI: The Exotic Palm Forest (Premium program)

 Type of excursion: Landscape Beach day - full day

 Duration of the one-way trip: 2 hours

 The exotic touch of Crete in an exotic area, with a beautiful beach, full of palm trees.

 We visit the exotic beach in Vai for a swim and, later on, Chiona, an equally beautiful and quiet beach for a swim and a bite to eat, a few kilometers away from the palm forest.

 The trip lasts 2:15 hours, with alternating pictures between the eastern northern coasts of Crete, through seaside settlements and its hinterland. We cross the mountains and move through mountainous traditional settlements, located at a high altitude. We make a pit stop amidst the path for a rest and a sip of coffee at a magical spot where you can enjoy the northern Sea of Crete and some small islands, from above. We also make a pit stop at an old monastery, for a while, very close to our final destination, where you will see a vivid Byzantine medieval castle where the monks produce and sell famous traditional agricultural products, such as wine, honey, and olive oil.
