In the morning, after a short stop at the pretty lake of Kournas you discover the absolute star among the cities of Crete, Chania, with it’s small winding back streets and beautifully restored Venetian and Turkish homes. Wander along the long stretched promenade in the famous old port and enjoy panoramic views at every step you take. You have time for shopping or simply wandering about at your leisure. Then, it is off to the South, through one the most scenic parts of the island: pictures – pretty villages with colourful flowers everywhere, green chestnut forests and deep gorges. The absolute highlight waits for you in the deep South – the breathtaking lagoon of Elafonisi with it shallow, clear waters, fine white sands that glitter in pink, purple and red at the water’s edge. You can swim, tan and relax, but do not forget to take a walk in the sand dunes.
