Project Description

“Pirates island”

Sailing Trip: Balos, Gramvousa

Up with the anchor, the white sails are raised and as soon as the wind blows we are off to another paradise in Crete.We now see the beautiful town of Hania from a different prospective with its tall mountains standing proudly above the sea. After a while all we see is the blue colour of the sky and the sea and passing by the first peninsula of Crete we are heading straight to the island of Gramvousa or else the island of the pirates…The clear green waters and an old shipwreck welcome us to the bay and as soon as we anchor at the small harbour we sense the “pirate” energy of the place. The landscape prepares you for something exotic as if the galleon has just let the pirates off. The beautiful Venetian fortress, which was built in the 16th century to protect them from the Turks, stands proudly above the small harbour attracting us like a magnet. Embrasures, strongholds and an amazing watchtower of the Cretan Sea to admire while the crystal waters tempt us to take a swim. At night, around the campfire we will tell the best sailing stories ( fake most of them …) and we will taste fresh fish caught by our captain ! On the next day after we enjoy our swim in the crystal clear waters, we will return and at around sunset we will enter with sails the old harbour of Hania…
