Magical Mirabello Bay of Crete
Greece's largest island juts out of the sea, with high mountain peaks almost 2500m tall. Crete's natural beauty captivates every visitor: from the hills in the east to the imposing cliff of Chania in the west, every step is a new discovery. Mirabello, the largest bay of the Greek islands, is picturesque and enchanting in the northeast part of the sunny island. Along its coast, long sandy beaches and secluded bays alternate with pretty port towns such as Agios Nikolaos with the legendary Voulismeni Lake and a small port. The island fortress of Spinalonga can also be seen off the coast - and is also a worthwhile excursion destination in Mirabello Bay.
