Fair Havens

Additional Links

Fair Havens, a harbor or roadstead of Crete, the unsafeness of which to winter in, occasioned that attempt to make for Phenice, on the other side of the island, which led to the eventual loss of the vessel in which Paul sailed for Rome (). As the name is still preserved, there is no difficulty in fixing the situation to a small bay a little to the north-east of Cape Leon, the present Cape Matala.
