Sea view from Creta-Panorama resort
The panorama includes big amount of sea and a part of the island. If I were you I had got a telescope here (I had :). The trees on the left and right are not specially choosed. There are many picturesque trees on the high pathway along the sea edge.
Some artificial bays are made for tourists agaist bad weather and big waves at sea. It is not Red sea, so nobody swam with diving mask. I did. Not only far sea views are nice. Underwater there are a lot of interesting, too. I saw octopuses, crabs, morays.
