I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.

    We are looking for a boat, to help with the removal of the rubbish from the beach.

    The beach is only 5 minutes by boat from Kolymbari, but it’s a steep hill up to the road on fraying, loose gravelly soil among spikey bushes. Not the ideal terrain for carrying heavy bags filled with rubbish (speaking from experience!). A boat would make removing the rubbish way easier.

    If you have a boat, or know of anyone who has one, preferably in Kolymbari harbour, and would be willing to help, please let us know.

  2. IMPORTANT announcement:
    the beach cleaning at Afrata for next Sunday will be cancelled , due to the bad weather condition.
