An experience beyond the ordinary...

This is a unique rib safari to superb Rodopou Peninsula and the secluded Menies or Diktynna Beach. Explore the rocky terrain through the sea and dive to secluded beaches.

Enjoy a wonderful day aboard exploring the other, not touristic Crete and some spectacular gems.

Ancient Diktynna’s“private’’ beach and the other bay's are lovely secluded beaches with pebbles and deep crystal blue waters. It is not affected by the usual winds blowing in the area and is ideal for isolation, far away from urban centers and only with a boat you can approach. Diktynna was the most important temple of the goddess Vritomartis, which is believed to be goddess Artemis. Thousands worshippers used to come here from all over Crete. Vritomartis was worshiped here during the Hellenistic and Roman times. There are still a few remains of the ancient Roman temple, but remains of the Hellenistic temple have not been found.
