Kouremenos, Palecastro, Crete

A little jump over the see to the island of Crete! Change of scene: Kouremenos beach is very beautiful sandy bay near village of Palecastro on the far eastern side of Crete. It is not crowded, quite a contrary. Most of the tourist on Crete stay in the central part, where the hotels are, and the most popular historical and archeological sites. To come to Palecastro you have to drive at least 2 and a half hours from Iraklion, pass through cities of Ageos Nicolaus and Sitia, and stop by the way and eat some delicious Greek food in one of the many taverns with breath taking view on the see.

Palecastro is occupied by peace lovers and windsurfers. Meltemi blows all the time; it's not so drastic as on Karpathos, but it's quite enough to give you a perfect windsurfing experience.

I was here 10 years ago, and now I found many changes. From almost desert place, Palecastro and its environment raised up to green oasis of windy peace. Looking forward to windsurf in this beauty!
