  • Nous avons passé une très belle journée bateau à la découverte de l’île de Dia au Nord d’Héraklion. La traversée se fait sur un joli voilier, le personnel est très sympathique et disponible. Il y a des boissons à volonté et le repas est préparé sur le bateau. Une fois proche de l’île, il est possible de se baigner, de faire du snorkeling, de se détendre sur le bateau au soleil ou bien de partir à la découverte de l’île où il y a une jolie église blanche et bleue. La vue sur la Crète et ses montagnes encore enneigées en Mai est magnifique !
