Western Crete boasts wonderful local produce and spectacular beaches. This excursion showcases the area’s best bits, with a wine tasting at the Karavitakis winery, sampling delicious local olive oil at Biolea estate and some relaxation on the white sands of Falassarna beach.
Start the day with some culture on a guided visit to a local winery. There’s a feast for your taste buds with a wine tasting session, accompanied by local snacks. Next, learn how olives are grown and the oil is pressed at one of Crete’s primary producers, Biolea.
Spend the afternoon relaxing on Falassarna beach, whose powdery white sands and the crystal-clear waters have earned it special protection under the EU’s Natura 2000 programme.
