Kournas Lake is the only physical lake in Crete as well as one of the most beautiful nature spots in the prefecture of Chania.
The scenery is picturesque, beautiful, idyllic, relaxing. You might see the lake when it shimmers, or you might see it when it mirrors the surrounding hills with the lush bushes. Its circular dark color was the cause of creating the myth that the Lake is bottomless, while its beauty preserves until today Nevertheless, lake Kournas is not an attraction just for the nature lovers. You can come here for lunch or coffee overlooking the wonderful scenery. Ride a pedalo boat or a Canoe Kayak in the lake that changes color due to the dense vegetation and the depth that reaches up to 22.5 meters during the summer season.
