I am going to Crete in May for six days. I'll be flying into Chania and spending the first couple of days there. I am going to spend the last night in Heraklion because I have a morning ferry to Santorini the next day. My question, where to spend the 3 days in between? I want to visit the south, or south-west coast. Palaiochora? Chora Sfakeon? Plakias? Ag. Galani? Maltala? or other? or a combination?
I want to hike the Samaria Gorge (from what I understand, I can do this from Chania, or Pal..), I also really want go to the Previlli Beach. I'll be traveling alone, I am not a party animal, but I do not want to stay in a completely dead place either.
Any advice you can give me will be appreciated.
