Trip out to the lake took 20 minutes or so, you can walk if the fancy takes you. Spectacular views, very quiet. Lovely tavernas and shops. Well worth a visit.

The lake Kournas is a great place for swimming and picnicking. This sweet water lake, the only one in Crete, gives the possibility to swim without big waves. Therefore it is an excellent place for couples with children.

The lake is very tranquil with beautiful surroundings. We hired a pedalo and just relaxed on the lake before having a drink in a tavern next to it. A holiday highlight.

Very beautiful place. Never seen anything like it. We took a pedal boat out and saw some tortoises on the other side of the lake. A lovely couple of hours.

Beautiful view but out of season nothing to do - no kiosks, souvenirs and no boating only a few ducks, etc for company
