A perfect place with a Greet view‼️🇬🇷
We go back there a few times a year during our stay on Crete.
Have a frappe, another drink, a snack and enjoy the most beautifull vieuw from the terras.
Impressive, changing all the time as a painting in constant progressie.

Friendly service with a smile😀☀️👍

Stunning scenery. Quiet and most beautiful. Ask about the crocodile - it's a very interesting story as the locals describe things differently to the stories that appeared in the press!

The scenes around Potami Dam are a beautiful drive but make plenty of stops for photographs! It would also make a nice bike ride but it's too far too walk in one go. There is a lovely Taverna overlooking the dam which does reasonably priced drinks and snacks.

Once you get there, you won’t probably find it crowdy. We have never did so. So it is a place to get relaxed. It is nice to approach it from every possible ways even by the car, it is so different. Once can wander a bit around, visit the taverna near the dam or the church built in exchange for one that was flooded during the construction of the dam.

It is a calm and quiet place. There’s a taverna with a nice view over the lake. The prices are really correct.

Driving through the mountain side of inner Crete it is worthwhile to make a stop a Potami Lake Dam. It is nice and quite there.
We recommend to take a break at the tavern next ot the Dam and relax for some time with a cool drink and look onto the lake and the mountains.

To get to the lake and dam is a bit of a drive over the hill range and through the valley on hair pin bends and narrow mountain passes. But the roads are ok if you take it low and the dam is quite a sight when you get there. Not spectacular but stands out in the range of hills.

This is a dam which was built in2008 I believe. We came upon it by walking through Patsos gorge. You can drive around it, quite a big size dam. There is a lovely wee taverna where you can get a cold drink and sit and admire the view. We actually sat under a big tree at the start of the dam, just after coming out of the patsos gorge, where we had our picnic lunch.
There were loads of goats, beautiful coloured dragonflys, egrets, herons, coots, moorhens, some birds of prey flying over head, hoopoes, flycatchers, to name a few of the abundant birds on the water. So very peaceful to sit and relax.
