Owner description: A long and pleasant walk along the gorge through breathtaking scenery, past waterfalls, fountains, deserted chapels and monasteries, to an authentic palm beach at Preveli. You can even catch a glimpse of a lammergeier if you are lucky. Watch out though for slips and trips - stout shoes essential.

Near Plakias, dramatic ravine with a chapel in the ravine, fine flora. It´s easy to park here and steps down to the river. But avoid the area during severe fire and immediately after rain, in view of falling pebbles

panorama. optional walks. canyon road. beautifull. for visitors to hora sfakion (sfakia) before or after Samaria Gorge. the other road to north also climbs through another gorge, just as impressive.

An amazing gorge that you can cross with your car. It worth visiting Agion Nikolaos church at the exit of the gorge: stop your car in the parking space and walk down the stairs to the church next to the waters coming out of the mountain side.

This beach was very nice, because it is not windy (between two cliffs) and calm sweet water river flows to the see. You can swim or wade up the river. We visited there August 2012. Nearest taverna is about ½ km from the beach.
