1. From Heraklion Area: Koufonisi Island Boat Cruise
Start with pickup from your hotel in the morning. Drive along the beautiful coast of Crete and the southernmost town of Europe, Lerapetra, before reaching Makrigialos, a picturesque village in the South-East of Crete. Here, hop on the boat and start the cruise to Koufonisi. Cruise around the island of Koufonisi, a totally uninhabited island, away from any kind of human activity. The boat sails around the whole island so you can admire the beautiful coastline and caves surrounding it. Make a stop at Koufonisi Bay for 1 hour. Enjoy some time for swimming in crystal clear, turquoise waters. You can then choose to enjoy lunch on board, at an additional cost. The boat then approaches the caves of Koufonisiso so you can take photos of the unique scenery. Stop at the beach of Koufonisi for 2 hours and 30 minutes. Umbrellas can be rented on board. Finally, head back on the return leg of your journey to Heraklion.
