I visited Crete way back in the 70s when I was living in London, but so long ago.
We have never sailed here before with 'Pacific Pearl', so a first.
Since 1960, Agios Nikolaos has grown into a popular international tourist resort....the nearby village of Elounda included.
The marina is situated very close to the heart of the town, near main archaeological sites and other places of interest.....to discover!
There is a small sandy beach just beside the marina, with crystal clear water, which is very convenient, as many people, locals and yachties, are still swimming every day.....bravo....water too cold for us!
We are well into preparing the boat for winter....washing sails, sheets, in fact everything outside.....before we start on the inside. The intermittent rain is not helping us though! Plenty of work to keep us busy busy, plus catching up with friends!
