Easton's Bible Dictionary

A harbour in the south of Crete, some 5 miles to the east of which was the town of Lasea ( Acts 27:8 ). Here the ship of Alexandria in which Paul and his companions sailed was detained a considerable time waiting for a favourable wind. Contrary to Paul's advice, the master of the ship determined to prosecute the voyage, as the harbour was deemed incommodious for wintering in (Acts 27:9 - 12). The result was that, after a stormy voyage, the vessel was finally wrecked on the coast of Malta ( Acts 27:40 - 44 ).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

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).
