Canyoning in Crete



Attention! The heavy rains of the last years have damaged many gorges and many paths have been destroyed so they are no longer accessible. You could inform us for such cases, so we update the listings in our website.
Diplohahalo Gorge
(18 votes)

At the furthest tip of Akrotiri Cape there is the gorge of Diplochachalo. It is located close to the village of Chordaki, on the way to the famous beach of Stefanou or Seitan Limania. This is a small, stunning and purely technical canyon with 6 descents, 2 of which are quite high. It starts just below the quarry that dominates the area. Its short course, except for the descents, forms impressive rock shelters and formations in with imposing slopes. In the middle of the highest 38m waterfall there is a beautiful cave with stalactites and stalagmites which goes about 20 meters deep. The exit of the gorge is right on the sandy beach of Stefanou.
