Ideally located on a private sandy cove, Daios Cove offers the most serene sailing holidays in Crete. Embark on luxury cruises, relaxing boat trips and adventurous excursions to pulled-out-of-a-dream beaches, and sail away to explore the awe-inspiring landscape of the Cretan coastline. In Crete — the biggest of all the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean — epic, world-famous history is all around you. Crete’s extraordinary landscape became the centre of the Minoan civilisation, the people responsible for building the first palaces in Europe.
