All about the lake

The lake is beautiful as is situated in the middle, below high mountains that seem like they are glazed every morning with a touch of snow. The waters are beautiful that if one stood barefoot for a while the fish in the water play with the feet like spas. Here you can rent a pedal boat and go around the lake and see all the beauties of the lake from the surface to the bottom. Fish, frog eels, turtles and many other aquatic species are the inhabitants of the lake water. It is really worth renting a car in Crete, and above all, if you have kids who can enjoy it. Throughout Crete ranging from Sitia to Chania and many other places are so interesting and special, it is enough to have a way to visit them. The lake of Kournas, brings together a lot of these.
