Just spent a wonderful day at Lake Kournas. We hired a car and took the mountain route through picturesque villages with spectacular views. The parking is free and we hired a pedal boat for €12 - hard enough work to get to the other side...More

Great place for couples or families, not crowded even in full season, warm clean water perfect for babies. Some places with trees to relax under them. Nice for a walk and for a cycling- boat trip!

It is a lake, big deal. This one's just between mountains. We have 180000 lakes in Finland so I have seen a few before. And this one's no different.

Best bet is to get a bus from Chania to Georgopolis and then a cab from there, much cheaper. Not sure if the turtles are actually not tortoises, but well worth a visit anyway!
