The cloudy weather soon cleared up, and we headed straight down to the pool to explore.
After relaxing for a bit by the pool, we wandered over the road to the beach and had a little look around.
The sea in Crete is incredibly clear (especially compared to the UK!) and warm – very appealing indeed!
We wandered along the beach, keeping an eye out for shells (of which there was a disappointing lack of) and I went in for a little paddle.
We wandered up into the village, where grape vines were growing everywhere! The village was quite deserted, so we didn’t stay long.
We stopped off at a taverna on the seafront, a few minutes walk from the hotel. We both had our first Greek salads of the trip – and they were so good!
We spent the afternoon lounging by the pool, armed with kindles and sun cream, and had dinner at the hotel overlooking the sunset.
I hope you all have a good day!
