The first stop is at the amphitheatrically built village of Agia Galini in South Crete.
Here you will have 1 hour to explore the village. The small, traditional houses and the harbor make the perfect match for a coffee break. Agia Galini is a small, but all the more so lively location on Crete`s southern coast. Built right up the hillside, tavernas and studios jostle each other (the meaning of the place name is holy sea tranquillity!). Some streets are pedestrian only and a small harbour completes the picture. The beautiful beach (which in summer can get very hot) is only a few minutes walk away.

The next stop is at Malata where you´ll have 3 hour of free time for swimming and enjoying the golden sandy beach. In Matala you can visit the Hippies caves. There are several tavernas where you can take refreshments. According to legend, Zeus, the father of the gods, went ashore here with the king´s daughter, Europa. Today the caves are protected. From the beach one can see the holes in the sand stone cliffs. Matala is not only known for its beautiful beaches but also for its artificially carved caves that date all the way back to the Minoan period. These same caves were later occupied by a hippy commune in the late 60’s and 70’s. Many musicians have composed song about the beauty of Matala including Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens.
On the way back to the north coast we´ll make a stop over at the mountain-village Spili. You´ll experience a traditional cretan village with its well know lion-head fountains in its centre. Walking along its cobbled streets you can explore the tourist shops which are full of traditional Cretan products.
