Diana's Travel Chania Crete
Falassarna Beach & Charma Brewery Trip
We start our trip in the morning and head to the far western coast of Crete, to the beautiful beach of Falassarna. Enroute, our guide will inform you about the history of the area since Falassarna was a Roman port in ancient times.
You will have about 2,5 hours on the large sandy beach of Falassarna to enjoy a swim in it's cool, clear waters. There are canteens on the beach if you wish to purchase refreshments as well as sunbeds & umbrellas to rent.
After the beach, the coach will take a ride back along the coast & then inland towards the village of Zounaki where the Cretan Brewery, Charma is located.
Cretan Brewery was established in 2007 with the purpose of producing beer, Charma which is fresh, handmade, unfiltered, without additives and preservatives.
You will get a guided tour from the staff of the Cretan Brewery which will take about 30 minutes. The tour is in English and Greek. You will learn about the brewing process & the ingredients used to make Charma Beer. The history of the brewery and the beer production process are presented in detail.
After the tour you will be able to sample 4 different cold Charma beers (100ml each).
After the tour you get to pick the beer of your choice & enjoy it with a local Cretan meze prepared with fresh local ingredients.
Cretan meze includes:
• a glass of beer (300ml)
• This plate includes: 2 kinds of meat, dakos, cherry tomatoes, salty olives, tzatziki and potatosalad.
For the vegetarians, instead of meat the Cretan meze includes boureki & a kalitsouni (Cretan cheese pie). Please advise us when booking, if you are vegetarian.
After the meze you will be back on the coach & returning you to the original pick up point.
