Fair Havens [NAVE]

FAIR HAVENS, a harbor in Crete. Paul briefly stays at, on his way to Rome, Acts 27:8.

FAIR HAVENS [SMITH]

a harbor in the island of Crete, (Acts 27:8) though not mentioned in any other ancient writing, is still known by its own Greek name, and appears to have been the harbor of Lasaea.

FAIR HAVENS [ISBE]

FAIR HAVENS - far ha'-v'-nz (Kaloi Limenes): A roadstead on the South coast of Crete, about 5 miles East of Cape Matala, the most southerly point of the island. The harbor is formed by a bay, open to the East, and sheltered on the Southwest by two small islands. Here Paul waited for a considerable time (Acts 27:9); but while it afforded good anchorage and a shelter from North and Northwest winds, "the haven was not commodious to winter in" (Acts 27:8,12).
