Overview
More
The Park has the concept of a rich biodiversity ecosystem of Crete. The visitors are guided though the rich wild vegetation of the park with the plants of Cretan traditional cookery, the aromatic medical herbs, the beautiful wild flowers from Crete and a lot of animals that live in this ecosystem. Crete with 10% endemic species gave a reasonable target to create this non profit park, to show the exotic flora and fauna of our island.

Unpretentious attempt to show Cretan flora. Show around by Liam a young man from England. Run by volunteers passionate about the environment . Don't expect a traditional touristy experience but visit if you have any interest in herbs flowers shrubs and Chameleons

We walked up from Rethymnon Beach for about 40 minutes on a hot sunny day. Welcomed by the staff who took their time to explain the plants and were very friendly. The goats, the chameleon and the view from the top were really worth it.

After a pretty exhausting stroll we got to the park and it was pretty much what it says on the tin. Smallish and not exotic but just lovely strolling about with a really sweet and interesting guide. Everyone left happy. Obviously it's not super polished...More
