Vai, the palm forest of Crete
Yes we have a Palm tree Forest and it’s beautiful. The images are from winter season so it’s more quite as in the summer is really busy.
The palm beach of Vai (is one of the largest attractions of the Mediterranean island of Crete. It features the largest natural palm forest in Europe, made up of Cretan Date Palm (Phoenix theophrasti). (Wikipedia)
It takes some time from Heraklion to arrive at Vai but the place deserves it for sure!!!
In the summer the place is really busy, but in the winter is one of my favourites places. Winter on Crete can be summer also for the North European citizens, check the link to check average weather conditions on the island of Crete
