Lendas in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

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.

Lendas or Lentas

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. There are old Roman remains to be seen if you are walking in the area of Lentas, such as the two ancient pillars of the Temple of Asklepios.

Tip of the day

Top beaches.  Crete, Greece
Kouremenos near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
A real magnet for windsurfers from all over the world, who find ideal wind-wave combinations.
Rihti - Exo Mouliana near Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
Two hours walk through the Rihtis gorge, which is a beautiful path that culminates with Rihtis waterfall near Rihtis beach, will take you to one of the most secluded beaches of the island.
Istron or Kalo Chorio (North-Estern Crete)
A place filled with legends and traditions – but you will find quality tourism services too.
Maridati South of Vai beach (North-Eastern Crete)
Two big rocks are the landmarks of this beach that remains unknown to the masses.
Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
A village filled with fish taverns with a view of the Pseira Island, and lots of archaeological findings.
Kato Zakros (Estern Crete)
If you follow the two hours long footpath through the “gorge of the dead” you will be rewarded with the view of a magnificent beach but also of the Minoan Palace of Zakros destroyed on 1450 B.C. possibly by a Thira (Santorini) volcano explosion.
Hiona near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
Shallow waters for the kids and young swimmers, and a well known - all over the island - local fish soup.
Aghia Fotia - Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
We are not talking about the district with the same name at Ierapetra, here we find ourselves 7 kms east of Sitia in an area where the biggest cemetery of Minoan Crete was discovered.
Xerokambos – Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
Thousands of lilies at the eastern part of Crete fill the atmosphere with sensual vibes.
