Plateaus in Crete



Ziros Plateau
(3 votes)

The small plateau of Ziros lies east of Armenohandrades plateau, at the point where the economic centre of the area, the village Ziros, is located. The village is picturesque and here you will find very basic services, such as gas station and bank. Ziros has faced a modest growth, a key driver of which is the military camp with the radar of the Greek Air Force, standing on a neighboring mountain. Vineyards and gardens are cultivated on this small fertile plateau. Typical is the use of metal windmills for pumping water, such as mills in the Lasithi Plateau, and there are some small lakes.

Ziros is the starting point of the narrow snake-like road with the countless turns, running close to the deserted villages Hametoulio and Lamnoni and ends at the beautiful beaches of Xerokambos. The narrow track is really majestic, crossing the wild and arid mountains and overlooking the turquoise waters of Mazida beach, the small islandsKavali and, in the background, Koufonisi Island. It is certain that in many places, you will stop to take many photos.
