Kournas Lake is the only freshwater lake in Crete. The lake is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, lying in a valley among the hills. Swim or ride a pedalo on the waters of the lake. Little beaches can be found on the banks of Kournas Lake, just under the main road and in front of the local restaurants. There, you will find sun loungers and umbrellas in the summer months.
Argiroupolis waterfalls, on the other hand, are a natural paradise which offers magnificent views of verdant scenery with springs, watermills and tap water running in streams. As for the food, in most local restaurants you will find trout and sturgeon on the menu, among other traditional recipes.
