No matter how far inland we live, there’s something about the sea that calls to us. It’s wide, deep, blue. It’s a canvas where we can paint adventures we otherwise can’t do on dry land.

A pleasure daily (10.30 - 17.30) yacht cruise to the small fish village of Mochlos in order to spend quality time with family, friends or coworkers in this day-long cruise in eastern Crete aboard a gorgeous yacht.

During this cruise we are going to explore the eastern side of the Mirabello Gulf, visit the fishing village of Mohlos, enjoying swimming at some of the best blue green beaches of the Eastern part of Mirabello. 

 

The Cruise 

We sail form Agios Nikolaos at approximately 09:30 am. We explore every bit of the Eastern Crete Riviera. On the way, we stop at beautiful beaches for a refreshing morning swim in the sea, at midday we pay a visit to the islet of Pseira (sightseeing around the islet). We then go for a swim at the unique pebbled beach of the islet. At 14:00, we rest and have lunch at the picturesque village of Mochlos. We dive into the crystal clear waters and we return around 16:30 pm.

 

What you will discover

Pseira Island is a small and uninhabited islet just a stone's throw away from the Minoan centre of Mochlos. The first excavations at the small Minoan town on the islet of Pseira took place during the first decade of the 20th century. The town was a small settlement during the Late Neolithic period and continued to grow throughout the Minoan period, reaching its highpoint during the Late Minoan period.

Exploring Voulisma bay & Swimming at Voulisma beach. A Cretan beach with thin white sand of an exotic colour. The white sand gives the water a turquoise colour found only in tropical beaches. The main beach is called Voulisma and it is a ‘Blue Flag”-awarded beach and the sea is usually calm and serene.

Islet of Mochlos & Village. Mochlos is a small picturesque fishing village located in the Gulf of Mirabello in Eastern Crete, and the archaeological site of an ancient Minoan settlement. There is evidence supporting that Mochlos was not an islet in Minoan times, but was attached to the mainland and served as an eastern harbour. The name Mochlos also applies to the small picturesque fishing village and resort located on the mainland, opposite the islet of Mochlos. Only 150 metres separates them. It is ideal for a quiet getaway, no noise, no pollution, and you can enjoy your meal at perhaps some of the best taverns in Crete overlooking the Minoan site.

Sailing along Eastern Crete Riviera. This extraordinary trip is full of surprises. While sailing by picturesque beaches, secluded rocky coves and hidden caves you may come across beautiful dolphins, rare turtles and various types of birds.
