Hired bikes which were decent. Had to wait two hours to return them (despite being told they'd be open all day) and ended up missing our bus.

We took a wonderful ferry trip to Balos ( 1,20 mn) and Gramvousa island. I recommend to reserve seats on the first floor as it may get very hot during the day to sit on the top deck. The ferry was overcrowded with people, which...More
