The park is situated on a hillside in lovely green valley, and well-maintained paths lead meandering down and up through the various sections, with tropical plants, fruit trees, Mediterranean herbs etc. Fantastic...

Seitan Limania Beach Akrotiri
#17 of 265 Nature & Parks in Crete
The last part of the driving is very curvy, but the view is amazing! 1) Parking: If the parking lot at the end is full, you can park along the road right before the parking lot.
If you love nature and unusual places, visiting Seitan Limani is a must.

Gorge of Mili Myli
#25 of 265 Nature & Parks in Crete
If you like to walk just a little for about 2h in the nature through a beautiful gorge with some house ruins (you can enter them) it's perfect.
Most people tend to just park at the side of the road and it can get quite busy as the day goes on.
Richtis Gorge Sitia
#26 of 265 Nature & Parks in Crete
Hike is beautiful, but drive down the hill and park by the stone bridge to save 30 min hike.
The scenery is beautiful as you walk with nature all around you the whole time.
Gorge of the Dead Kato Zakros

It is truly incredible how immersed you feel in nature once you go through one of these things.
We decided to park at point "A" a little way outside the village and save ourselves the walk to the start of the gorge.
