Review of Sarakina Gorges

Reviewed January 29, 2014

I've been visiting Crete, and staying in Ierapetra for over 20 years, but somehow never discovered Sarakina Gorge until now. 3 of us scrambled our way up the first part of the gorge and had a lot of fun in the process. There are some pools deep enough to dip in. Some reviews say to wear good shoes but I wore plimsoles which worked well as I was able to walk in the water in places without worrying about damaging my shoes. For my full review and details on how to find the gorge just google "Jon Scaife Sarakina gorge" and hit the top link.

You must have good shoes, and be fairly fit. There is a lot of scrambling up rocks, using hand and foot holds, and sometimes rope. But it is really worth the effort. This was a brilliant thing to do - and if you can't face the return journey you can take the unmade road to the right which leads you up the mountain and onto a tarmac road back down to the car park. The views from here are terrific, so this is worth doing.
