A beautiful easy hike in the south of Crete.
We start our hike from Kali Limenes and following the coastal trail we pass by the cave/sinkhole of Vourvoulitis. Then we go down into the gorge near the old chapel of St Antonios.
The gorge is beautiful, full of low vegetation and old olive trees, caves and high rock walls at the sides ending in a beautiful beach. It is an important rock climbing sector, where the Cretan climbing community often meet, climb the rocks, have fun and protect the natural environment.
During our stay, apart from swimming in the clear blue waters of the Libyan Sea, there are two organised activities:
— An hourly experience programme concerning the right exercise for the hiker and the climber.
— Basic practical approach to rock climbing in cooperation with the Cretan Climbing Community.
On the way back we take the same way. This hike is suitable for newbies and children.
