Tip of the day
Crete, Greece. Lendas (Lentas). The little fishing village of Lentas lies on the south coast of Crete, at the foot of a mountain range. Lentas sits on a promontory, in the shape of a crouching lion, which runs down to a 300 metres long strip of fine shingle that merges into the azure blue of the Libyan Sea.
According to mythology, one of the lions, which pulled the goddess Rhea’s chariot was turned into stone here, thus giving the area its name. Until very recently the village had no electricity and was reached only by a tiny unpaved road. Today, however, Lentas is a small holiday resort, which attracts many visitors, drawn by the natural beauty of the spot. There are lots of tavernas on the beach, but the village retains its quiet simple character. This place is ideal for visitors who want a simple and relaxing seaside holiday. In ancient times, Lentas was probably the port of the old Roman capital of Crete, Gortys and which is also well worth a visit.
