Preveli / Rethymno tour in Crete
Preveli reminds of an exotic lagoon. Preveli beach and lagoon, sometimes known locally as “Palm Beach”, is located below the monastery which is our first stop. The Patriarchal Preveli Monastery of St. John the Theologian, known as the Monastery of Preveli, comprises two main building complexes, the ruined Lower Monastery of St. John the Baptist, and the currently operational Upper (Rear) Monastery of St. John the Theologian.
Behind the beach is an extensive glade of palm trees. The beach is approachable by boats from the nearby resort of Plakias. It is an oasis of palm trees with crystalline greenish waters and fine soft sand. The Kourtaliotis River ends at this wonderful beach, creating a delta. Apart from the superb palm trees, lush vegetation surrounds the beach and the river, creating a dreamy landscape. Afterward, we will visit the city of Rethimnon where you have plenty of time to enjoy a traditional prepared meal or enjoy a cold glass of coffee.
