10.30 arrival at Zaros
12.00 arrival at Matala for food and Swimming
14.00 departure from Matala

Through the rich vine-yards of Malevisi we arrive at Zaros where we stop at the lake of Zaros to stretch our legs and have a coffee break. Zaros is well known for it pure bottled drink water.

After our stop we will pass the Messara plain the largest plain of Crete and the richest in agricultural sense. Historical the sites of Gortys and Phaestos are also situated here. We will pass the site of Phaestos but there is no stop included in this trip.

After a small drive through the Messara plain we arrive at Matala. Matala is known for its holes in the Cliffside where a hippie colony flourished in the sixties. It is rumoured but never proven that Bob Dylan spent some time here. The holes are in fact man maid roman burial grounds. In Matala you will have time for a refreshing dive in the water, to eat something or just to enjoy a drink at the seaside.

Have a safe trip and a great time !
