    Gramvousa – from Chania

    This cruise has everything – great scenery, beach time and a helping of medieval history. You'll sail past steep cliffs and caves before docking at Gramvoussa Island. This massive chunk of rock is crowned by a half-ruined Venetian castle. Here, you can stay sunbathing on deck, take a swim or trek up to the castle to drink in the views. After that, your boat will make its way back to the peninsula and Tigani. Lapped by the shallow Balos Lagoon, it's a beach that looks like something from the Caribbean. Laze on the white sands, snap photos of the views or splash about in the warm knee-deep water.
