Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 27:8

_ _ And hardly passing it — “with difficulty coasting along it,” from the same cause as before, the westerly current and head winds.

_ _ came to ... the Fair Havens — an anchorage near the center of the south coast, and a little east of Cape Matala, the southern most point of the island.

_ _ nigh whereunto was the city Lasea — identified by the Reverend George Brown [Smith, Voyages and Shipwreck of St. Paul, Appendix 3, Second Edition, 1856]. (To this invaluable book commentators on this chapter, and these notes, are much indebted).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 27:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 27:8

The Fair Havens still retain the name. But the city of Lasea is now utterly lost, together with many more of the hundred cities for which Crete was once so renowned.
