“Gret Place to Swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Excellent place to swim particularly on a hot day the sweet water lake is so refreshing and if you are lucky you will see the Fresh Water Turtles that the lake is famous for.

“Beauty of western Crete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We loved our half-day visit to Lake Kourna! The lake is beautiful with a lovely breeze that keeps the temperature comfortable. n the foot of the White mountain there is a natural lake where the scenery is almost magic. Kournas lake is offered door those who want to spent a relaxing day by lying in the shore of the lake, swim inside by hiring a pedal boat or enjoy the scenery by drinking a refreshment at cafes.

Have a nice summer vacation in the most beautifull place in the world Crete !

“Little heaven”

Beatiful setting that was really relaxing and helped cool us down on on a hot summers day. The water was clear and very inviting set at the bottom of the mountains. Specatular views

“Lake Kournas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Beautiful lake and scenery, If you rent a pedalo you can see turtles in the lake.
When you arrive you will be directed to the right but go left where it is quieter and a nicer restaurant.
