The Ha Gorge is one of the many magical places in Crete. Due to the steep entrance, exploration is practically inaccessible to ordinary tourists. Without the proper equipment and knowledge of climbing techniques, it is only admiring the narrow mouth of the ravine and its impressive walls steeply rising over 300 meters up.
However, if you are going in the direction of Ierapetra, then you should add this place to the plans of your trip. Gorge Ha guarantees you an amazing scent of herbs growing over the mountains with the sound of goats bells, driven by the pursuit of food, reaching the steepest rock shelves.
Krios beach is located about 9 km west of Paleochora and it is also the last beach on this section of the southern coast, accessible by road. If you are looking for a slightly less crowded place and you do not care about the perfect sand, you should be satisfied by choosing this beach.
New National Road is a peculiar communication backbone of the northern coast of Crete. A significant part of tourist traffic is carried out through this road. However, due to the difficult mountainous terrain, not all areas of the island are as well connected as the northern part of Crete. The wild south coast of the western part of the island has its own maritime equivalent of this land route - it is a permanent ferry connection connecting the most important towns of this region.
