Not to Miss (Seriously)
Preveli Palm Beach
All the way to the South coast of Crete, at the end of a mild ride, suitable for everyone, the spoils await! Preveli beach is just out of this world and comes with a few perks too!
In general terms it can be a mild ride but also it can be “not” mild, upon request.
There are two beaches next to each other, separated by a small hill.
Up-Down the Hill
So you go up the hill (and down) and you arrive at the palm forest beach.
On location, there is a taverna which serves extra good quality food.

A few things about this full day tour
Regardless of where we depart, it’s going to be a long ride. You really need to have a sun lotion with you, a bottle of water and maybe a snack. A hat would be a good idea, but make sure it won’t fall of your head (on an open top vehicle).
The location itself is pretty. It’s basically two beaches separated by a small hill in between. The hill comes with partially cemented, partially curved on the rock, partially not there… steps. So you don’t have to be a climber, just have a pair of legs and you should be fine.
Going over the hill comes with quite the pay off. The waterfront is the same for both beaches, but the “after” on, also comes with a river, a small palm forest and it’s more secluded. It’s really worth the small effort.
What else is there in this full day tour?
Obviously we are not just going to dump you at a beach and that’s it. Originally there is a certain route that takes us through more “must see” locations near by, both on the way there and upon return.
How about the food. a tavern on the beach is usually a tourist trap
Usually that’s the case, but not this time. The food is excellent and the ingredients are mostly grown on location, organic and very tasty. The food alone is a good enough reason to go there.
