After leaving the centre of Crete, you will head towards Mires, in the south of the island The first stop is the monastery Panagia Kaliviani. It was expanded into a small Christian town and institutions such as an orphanage, a home for the elderly, a home economics school and many other social projects were built there.

After a short trip through traditional villages, you will reach the spectacular path down to the gorge "Agia Farangi" After a short drive along the pebble path, you will walk the rest of the way to the beach of the Agia Farango gorge

The gorge of Agia Farango is a holy place, it is a natural paradise with a forest of oleander bushes and many different plants The beach is surrounded by stone walls which rise steeply into the air - a paradise for climbers! In these breathtaking walls you can also discover large and beautiful caves, which were inhabited until 1985. For this reason Agia Farango is also called "the gorge of the hermits" In one of these rock niches, hermits have even built a church, St. Anthony. You will be able to visit them and be inspired by the atmosphere and the admirable architecture.

Afterwards you have the possibility to spend some time at the crystal clear, mostly calm water and the beautiful beach, take a bath and relax in the nature.

Finally the day will end at the famous beach of Matala. Here you have again the chance to enjoy the light blue water and the sun and to explore the step rocks there.

The last highlight of the day is a delicious dinner at sunset in a small taverna by the sea After an exciting day with many experiences you will be taken back to your hotel.
