For travellers who wish to admire the raw beauty of the Gorge but can’t or won’t walk the whole of it, Samaria easy is the perfect alternative either recommended for families with children.
In the morning, you'll arrive at the traditional village of Sfakia and take the boat to the beautiful beach of Agia Roumeli. From there, you can walk to the opposite direction within the majestic gorge. Most people get as far as the famous Iron Gates, the narrowest point of the gorge, just to get a glimpse of the wild beauty and serenity of the area.
Getting back to the sandy beach of Agia Roumeli, a superb place nestled between high mountains, you have the chance for swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the Libyan Sea, sunbathing or taking strolls in the village or enjoying your meal in one of the seaside taverns.
At the end of this stress-relieving day, you board the boat once again to get back to the village of Sfakia, where you take the bus to get back to your hotel.
