The imposing bay of Mirabello is also ideal for those who seek to escape from everyday life with sailing. The bay is wide, giving the opportunity for exploration with a calm cruise along the coast, as well as in the open seas, for the bolder ones. This is where you will find the right wind, without the tiring waves. In August, the winds are stronger, but the bay is wind-protected, allowing for safe sailing. Therefore, if the weather is calm, the routes increase.
Starting from the marina of Agios Nikolaos, you will find yourself in one of the most cosmopolitan parts of the island; Elounda. Crossing the coastline of Agios Nikolaos and passing the island of Agioi Pantes, you shall enter the bay of Elounda where Glaronisi is located. The beach of Krios, located there, is beautiful, but accessible only by boat. The northernmost points of the municipality are dominated by the Lighthouse of Aforesmenos. On the way back, there are numerous caves and hidden beaches with crystal clear waters. The famous cave of Barbarossa is just a few minutes away from the traditional taverns of Plaka and the picturesque villages.
Some beautiful waters can’t be discovered without getting lost.
