East Crete Geopark
East Crete Geopark, Kouremenos Bay, the beautiful beach at Palekastro, a small corner of paradise in Europe…
Hiking in an unspoilt area between olive trees and aromatic herbs, between rough mountains and deep valleys, amongst sheep and goats, to distant mountain villages and deserted beaches, to archeological sites and other tourist attractions. Every trail offers the possibility of a fresh dive in the sea from a remote beach and of a bite to eat or a cool drink in a hidden village where time has really come to a standstill. You will invariably be welcomed there with a heartfelt “iasou” or “iasas” because hospitality is not an idle word. The area is genuinely Greek, the weather is always fantastic, with no mass tourism or crowds here, no big holiday resorts.
East Crete has to be felt and experienced, here you can combine off-road mountain biking or hiking with a real holiday.
