Great Walk and Gorgeous Scenery
The gorge of Anidri is small yet lovely. It is located in the Paleochora region, at the south-west end of the Chania Prefecture. It runs from the village of Anidri to the magnificent twin beaches at Gialiskari, which are separated by a small peninsula thick with junipers

From there we start our walk to the gorge.
Anidri gorge it is not big but impressive.Remote peaks with smooth slopes, extensive olive groves, orchards, chestnut trees, and plane trees growing in ravines and damp spots, make up a wonderful setting, gentler in comparison to the eastern part of the Kandanos-Selinos area, and full of characteristic colors and scents.
It is 2 kilometers and requires less than an hour to get through it.
We will end our walk at the magnificent twin beaches at Gialiskari, which are separated by a small peninsula thick with junipers.Stop for refreshment and a small lunch at the Beach-Cantina
