Sunset in Palaiochora, Crete

Photos from my vacations in Crete during the last two years…

Last year I was always on the move exploring beautiful beaches and new places. This year was mainly about relaxation (and food I must admit). Here I collected the highlights of my vacations in this beautiful island including the tropical beach at Elafonisi (with pink sands no less), beautiful sunsets in Palaiochora and Asterousia mountains, lots of sheep, Preveli beach at the estuary of Kourtaliotis river (and gorge), a carved tree trunk in Matala, decorative details at Agios Titos in Heraklion, details in Spili village and an intricate bell tower in Palaiochora!

Needless to say that Elafonisi in the region of Chania is my favorite beach ever. I don’t need to visit the Bahamas now, I’m covered!
