    Preveli Beach
    Stop: 90 minutes -
    The beach of Preveli is situated 40 km south of the main town and is the most idyllic beach in Rethymno. Preveli reminds of an exotic lagoon. It is an oasis of palm trees with crystalline greenish waters and fine soft sand. Kourtaliotis River ends at this wonderful beach, creating a delta. Apart from the superb palm trees, lush vegetation surrounds the beach and the river, creating a dreamy landscape.

Great way to see a different side to Crete. Frank was a great guide and clearly loves his work. Away from the main roads you see smaller villages hardly affected by tourism except by us! The day flew by, well worth the price. Good traditional food at lunchtime so don’t eat too

What a way to see the island. Picked up from our apartment, then on to collect the rest of the gang. Driver was banging out some rock anthems as we ascended into the mountains. First stop, vulture spotting as they majestically soared over the gorge. Constant stops to point out
