1. Chania: Menies Beach & Chironisia Bay Cruise with Snorkeling
Explore the wild natural beauty and the crystal-clear waters of two pristine beaches on this guided cruise from Chania to Menies and Chironisia bay. Use the provided snorkeling gear to uncover the remains of a sunken gun and carriage from WWII. Choose from a tour that meets on the boat in the harbor of Kolymbari or that includes convenient hotel pickup and drop-off from select locations in north Chania. Set off a comfortable and spacious boat. Feel the wind in your hair as you glide to Menies beach which is on the site of ancient Diktynna, where the most important temple of the goddess Vritomartis was located. See the remains of the ancient Roman temple as well as a 9th century abandoned monastery of St. George. Put on your snorkel gear to explore some underwater items from WWII before heading to Chironisia Bay, a small hidden bay that is only accessible by the sea. Plunge into the deep blue waters where you can venture into small caves with the snorkel gear.
