6 days sailing in the Southern Islands of Europe

Our 6 days sailing journey starts from Sfakia and from there we sail to beautiful Gavdos (21 miles away) where we will definitely spend two nights.

That west side of Crete may be more known, but also the east side coasts has many well-hidden gems.
Then, depending on the weather, we can travel the high seas taking a great 83 miles trip straight to another paradise, an island on the east side called Gaidouronisi (Golden/Chrissi).

Chrissi is protected as an “area of intense natural beauty”. The island has the largest naturally formed Juniperus macrocarpa forest in Europe. There is no fresh drinking water on the island. The majority of trees have an average age of 200 years and an average height of up to 7 metres (23 feet), some of the trees are up to 300 years old and 10 metres (33 feet) tall.
Moreover, we can approach Koufonissi which is 22 miles further to the east.

We will reach Ierapetra and on our way back we will travel near the coast.

We will definitely stop at Lenta, the beautiful bay of Agiofarangos, and also at Matala. Our overnight stay can be anywhere the weather permits.

An excursion for those who want to “write miles” and at the same time search for unfamiliar places with breathtaking beaches without crowds and noise. Also, the embarkation and disembarkation point can be alternated as it is possible to start from Sfakia and finish our trip in Ierapetra on the east side of Crete, or the other way round.
