Snorkeling and Boat Tour in Crete

50 reviews
Snorkeling is very relaxing and at the same time a very exciting activity which is suitable for all ages. Join us in a daily (morning or afternoon) guided “snorkeling” trip, take the mask, fins, snorkel and shorty wet suit from us, board on our 10 meters shady rib boat and take the chance to relax watching the marine life of our island. <br><br>We visit always two different spots with a lot of marine life, such as caves and an open water area always depends on the weather conditions

Not a strenuous hike but does require agility and balance for boulder hopping down riverbed. Decent hiking shoes a must. Took 1.5hrs to beach and 1hr back but took loads of photos on way. Beach at end is just beautiful.

An relatively easy walk. The path markers are a bit hard to see at times. Great beach at the end for a swim and picnic lunch.

Parts of the walk are quite difficult. You should wear proper shoes and bring enough water. Beautiful views and nice beach are the rewards!

Contrary to the information in the walking guides, this wasn't an easy or short walk! We took 2+ hours down to the beach and 1+ hours back up to the car. The start of the walk is deceptive too. If you park at the cemetery, having negotiated the very narrow bends in the village of Chochlakies, the walk starts as you take the gravel path next to the wooden arbour thing with the map. After a few metres there's a red arrow to the right. Don't take this turn into the olive grove. Carry on straight down the path and cross the concrete ford over the river - if it's still in water. Carry on wiggling through the olive grove, following the river bed on your right, until you come to a gate and a sign saying Chochlakies Gorge. Now follow the red waymarkers which are very clear all the way along the gorge. they've usually painted dots on boulders, so you have to look out for them sometimes. Most of the path follows the river bed and as such, isn't a path at all, just the river bed. We were lucky/unlucky in that the water was still in the river bed when we walked there in May this year. apparently quite unusual. Although wading through water is very refreshing in the heat, it was sometimes thigh high so very slow going. Also there's much clambouring over boulders and walking through spiky undergrowth. Long trousers and boots may be better if walking in June or July. The beach at the end of the walk has no facilities at all so take food and plenty of water. Well worth the adventure however.

Walked the gorge yesterday and was surprised by the terrain as others had stated it was an easy walk. I would strongly recommend that if you are planning to walk this gorge, you ensure you take suitable walking shoes, and be prepared for a bit of scrambling up rocks. I wouldn't class it as a difficult walk by any means, but don't expect a short stroll to the beach! The beach itself is paradise, lovely blue water in a peaceful sheltered bay. We spent much of our time there completely alone.We had planned to travel along the cliff to the cave, but to be honest the minute we saw that beach, we realised we were set for the day! The walk each way took us about 1hr 20mins, although I'll admit that while an experienced walker, I'm not a very fast one! If you want an easier gorge walk then I'd recommend doing the gorge of the dead instead (Zakros) either park at parking spot A for a slightly more challenging experience, or B for an easy stroll, but don't expect a beach anywhere near as nice at the end!
