Between heaven & earth
This was one my most adventurous hikes !…
I’ve never hiked much, unlike my boyfriend who’s into all kinds of sports, I’m not very sporty. I used to hike a bit when I was living in L.A., but it was nothing like the hike I went on to get to Preveli beach.
Honestly, I wasn’t prepared ! I got a bit of vertigo, a sunburn, and the way up was the worse, but the views were worth it. The beach is surrounded by beautiful tall palms, but to access it you gotta get down from the top of a hill (which is very rocky), or find a boat ride from a nearby city with a harbor.
Yes, so it’s pretty much crazy. There is a little cafe down there, believe it or not. I was shocked, but you can order some simple foods & drinks, and the shades from the palms are pleasant. The most unusual thing ever is that there is an actual river that stops right at the sea, there’s a sand formation that separates the two. Very beautiful and cool.
Enjoying the sun !
I freaking love Crete 🥰
We were literally having the best time during our vacay there… oh, I miss it so much ❤️. In these pictures, you can see Matala beach which is one of the most beautiful on the island. They have some special kind of caves there, which you can visit for a fee. The waves are huge, so it’s difficult to swim but it’s so much fun to let yourself go with the flow.
We didn’t stop there for the night, we chose Agia Galini, which was a super cute city. Very touristy though. But great restaurants, nice cafes, and a great promenade by the sea, which we walked by night & day and it was marvelous. There’s a cool atmosphere at night time, it’s pretty lively. All in all, we loved it !
