We hired a car and drove up to the top from Malia. It took about an hour but was so worth it. Had one stop by windmills to enjoy the views.the roads were quite alright to drive on but to be honest I would have been a bit scared going round those sharp bends but our driver was confident and enjoyed the experience.
The view was out of this world, it was amazing and could only say this is a visit not to be missed. We parked for a small charge at the area where Zeus was said to have been born in a cave, (not to be missed)
We had brunch overlooking the plateau, I will never forget this visit and I’m sure you won’t.
Just a hands up, I would suggest to get here early as when we left to come down the mist was coming in, we could still see but check weather report on the day you visit if driving yourself to avoid stress. Have fun .More
