The west side of Crete is equally spectacular and therefore worth discovering. Head towards Psiloritis, the highest mountain in Crete reaching an altitude of 2453 m. until you reach the scenic old town of Rethymon. Enchanting, unique, Rethymno still holds its authentic charm. It is the perfect place to relax, to stroll around and visit the old port before you set off to discover the medieval town of Chania. Enjoy your coffee or a delicious meal at the old picturesque harbor, visit the lighthouse, the neoclassical mansions, the museum, the closed Marketplace and leather Market Street as well as the mesmerizing beaches situated nearby. Continuing your journey to the west of Crete you may later make a stop at Kournas lake, the only sweet water lake in Chania worth capturing on camera.
