Voulolimni pond

Voulolimni (i.e. sunk lake) is located 70km southeast of Chania and 500m northwest of Chrysoskalitissa monastery. It is actually a small crater, surrounded by rocks, forming a small salt lake. Voulolimni is not actually a beach, but the rocky "pool" for the residents of Chrysoskalitissa.

The small salt lake is very well protected by strong winds that blow in the area and there is only a small opening connecting that to the open sea. Thus, it is used as a local harbor for small boats. The water is very calm and has greenish hues, that make it look marvellous to most swimmers.

There are no facilities near the lake, however there are several rooms and taverns in Chrysoskalitissa.
