With the glistening turquoise sea before your eyes, flecked with speedboats and fishing vessels, who said your adventure must stay on land? The resort's traditional wooden Caique is the perfect transportation for touring Crete's hidden bays and lesser-known, waterside villages. As for how to spend the day onboard, that's yours to decide.
As the sun begins to disappear over the bay, set sail to spend the evening aboard the Caique in the incredible surroundings of Elounda's natural beauty. As you depart the resort's jetty, pop open a bottle of chilled Champagne and settle into the leisurely pace of life on the water. Spend the hour exploring nearby bays and coves in the company of your loved one, enjoying the delicious taste of handmade treats and local specialities served by the chef onboard.
Join the resort's sommelier for wine-tasting on the water! Stocked with a selection of the island's most celebrated bottles, step aboard the Caique and head out of the bay. You'll savour the rich flavours of earthy wines, many of which are curated by local producers, along with a choice of delicious cheese. What better way to immerse yourself into Cretan wine culture than with the sea as your soundtrack?
For an adventure unlike any other, board the Caique and sail around the rugged coastline to visit some of the island's unspoilt natural beaches, only accessible by boat. Anchor upon the spectacular sands of Kolokytha for lunch, where you will be greeted by the byzantine chapel of St. Fokas, which holds a intriguing story of its own. You'll also have the chance to savour a mouthwatering barbecue, freshly prepared by the chef on-site.
