Although it's quite a long drive, about 1,5 hours from Malia, the drive is worth it if you like driving. At the end there are many different (hairpin) turns which make it very interesting. The hike itself starts at the old bridge where you are...More

This place is a must when visiting Crete. It was absolutely beautiful, lots of fruit trees on the way and lovely flowers. Make sure to bring shoes with a good grip (preferably walking shoes or running shoes) as you have to climb on stones along...More
