As the sun sets on day six, we set sail for the legendary shores of Balos Beach. 

Nestled between towering cliffs and azure waters, Balos is a slice of paradise straight from the pages of a fairy tale. With toes in the sand and hearts soaring, we bask in the beauty of this untouched oasis, savoring every moment of serenity and splendor.

In Heraklion, we delve into the mysteries of Knossos Palace, stepping back in time to uncover the secrets of Europe’s oldest city.

As the sun dips below the horizon, we board a ferry bound for the iconic island of Santorini. With its whitewashed villages and breathtaking vistas, Santorini is a vision of paradise come to life. Our evening is free to explore, to wander the winding lanes of Oia, or simply to drink in the beauty of this island jewel.
