What to do first? At Daios Cove there’s an endless supply of top-class sporting activities to amuse guests of every age, from water-skiing, pedalos, canoeing and scuba diving to tennis, fitness training, yoga and pilates. 

There’s also a full range of entertainment available, including tailor-made excursions to the most famous places on the island, and in-resort wine-tasting sessions. 

Plus, when the hot sun goes down, there’s a cool programme of DJ nights, dancing and live events, with guest artists playing latin, funk, soul, jazz, traditional Mediterranean and Cretan music under the stars. Wet or dry, Daios Cove offers the opportunity to blend familiar favourite activities with fascinating and exciting new experiences.

Water sports centre

With expert tuition and supervision from our trained water sports staff, guests can take a trip around the bay in canoes, kayaks and pedalos or have fun on water-bikes and stand-up paddle boards. Private yachts, motorboats and catamarans are available for rent and sail, too.

Scuba diving

Both novices and veteran divers can experience an unforgettable undersea adventure at Daios Cove. Our diving centre features approved coaching from trained PADI diving professionals for all levels, from beginners through to expert. Underwater excursions, including a visit to a shipwreck, are also available.

Tennis courts

Whatever their level — be they serious tennis pros or just-for-fun players — tennis fans will love our two courts with artificial grass surfaces. These are floodlit, too, so games don’t have to be played in the heat of the afternoon sun.

NOTICE: Tennis equipment and floodlit courts are available at extra charge 

Fitness, Yoga & Pilates

Guests can work up a sweat in our state-of-the-art fitness studio, equipped by Technogym training equipment, with personal trainers on hand to make sure they get the most from their exercise sessions. It’s not all about working out, though: there’s wind down time, too, courtesy of a yoga or pilates class.

Culture at the Cove

For guests who prefer a less hectic time, there’s a whole range of entertainment available at Daios Cove. Create a bespoke excursion to one of the many must-see locations in Crete; or book a cookery lesson or enjoy a wine-tasting session. Then there’s a programme of music, including DJ nights and our Culture at the Cove live events under the stars, featuring everything from traditional Greek to Latin and jazz.
