Join us in this immersive summer experience which will leave you with life long memories of glorious days on stunning beaches of Crete, from the shimmering clear Mediterranean Sea in the north to the relaxed Libyan Sea to the south. 7 jewels from the land of the gods for you  to enjoy in our small group, exclusively hosted, offering peaceful days under the beautiful blue Cretan sun, Zeus will indeed smile upon you as we embark on this week, which we like to call our "Magnificent 7" and like the film by that name, memorable and timeless!

No serious beach lover can visit Crete without spending a day on the world famous Elafonissi beach with its pink sand and multi coloured blue, topaz and turquoise sea. Situated on the southwest tip of the island, Elafonissi is ranked among the top 10 beaches in Europe, a place of exceptional natural beauty, challenging the best of the Caribbean, with pinkish sand in many places, taking its color from millions of crushed shells.

The iconic beach where the timeless movie “Zorba the Greek” was filmed. A beautiful sandy beach, with fine white sand and shallow turquoise waters, guarded by the camel-shaped mountain rising opposite the harbor, a great setting for that instagram-perfect photo shoot!


The history of Chania, explained in a leisurely walk through the charming cobbled streets of Venetian heritage, followed by a delicious Cretan dinner of authentic local dishes, with chilled wine, in a dramatic sunset setting, right near the sea.


The most photographed beach on the entire island, Balos is is famous for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty and the beautiful exotic scenery. We challenged ourselves to make the visit to this place of such wondrous beauty even more special, and, and we believe we have found the answer: to visit it by private chartered yacht!


The magic trio! Exclusive trip south to Sfakia, over the mountains, with stunning scenery and unspoiled natural areas followed by a private boat trip to the sublime pristine Glyka Nera beach, accessible only by sea, and finally lunch at the iconic village of Loutro,the mini-Santorini on the Libyan Sea and a real throw back to the essence of the authentic Greek fishing villages, as they were tens of years ago.


This day is a real treat, not just because Falassarna beach on the west coast offers stunning views, whitish soft sand stretching on over 3 km and some of the most beautiful crystal clear water to swim, but because the lunch included on this memorable day out is taken at one of the most authentic, fabulous yet totally rustic fish taverns on the whole of the island of Crete, made famous by its world beating kakavia (Cretan fisherman’s soup).


A lively but not overcrowded beach due to being a very long sandy stretch with shallow sloping golden sand giving way to clear blue water, great for swimming but also for socialising and fun. Large parts of this beach are lined by upmarket “beach bars” cabanas and four poster relaxing sofas with entertaining music, watersports and food and beverages full service.
