The road to the south brings us to the southernmost town in the European continent, Ierapetra, for a short break. After that it is time to stroll through the mountainous tranquility of Toplou monastery and see the ancient icons for which it is famous. Our main destination is the idyllic oasis of Vai Beach, which is the only natural palm tree beach in Europe. Many people are surprised to learn that the famous Bounty chocolate advert was filmed here in Vai and not in the Caribbean as one would think. Pose for a photo, sunbathe or swim in the tropical waters or relax in the waterfront taverna. After we have managed to drag you away from here and back onto the bus, we make a stop at the fishing town of Sitia. Here, you have a chance to look around and maybe enjoy a coffee and a cake in one of the lovely cafes around the small harbour. A relaxing day for those who would like to combine the delights of sightseeing with the tropical side of Crete.
