About Botanical Park Of Crete, Chania

Looking at this 20 hectare park, 18km from Chania, it’s hard to imagine this lush wonderland was ever a victim of fire… which happened in 2003; there’s a centennial olive tree here commemorating the fire. The highlights of the park are:

  • 150 species of fruit trees; and the dozens of herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants that Cretan mountains are famous for.
  • Animals such as birds (around the lake area), butterflies, wild goat, hares, badgers, the Cretan rock ferret, the Cretan weasel and tree frogs.
  • The Amphitheare, which can be hired for presentations, wedding receptions, small concerts, and Cretan folklore evenings of music and dancing.
  • The restaurant with a majestic view of the mountains.

Botanical Park Of Crete, Chania Reviews

  • The gardens were beautiful with all sorts of interesting plants. Well worth the money (5 euros). It is a fairly steep hill but the path meanders so is manageable. It also has plenty of places to rest if you need it. The highlight has to be the restaurant at the entrance. The food is amazing and the view just adds to the experience.

  • Maybe not the first place you would visit when you're in beach paradise. The gardens are worth the walk if you're fit (pretty steep). But the real reason to go here is the restaurant, right in front of the entrance. WOW! The views are magnificent. Food is great. One of the highlights of my holiday.

  • Lovely, well maintained garden with a large variety of plants and trees. The restaurant is very pleasant serving quality food. My advice if you visit using the public bus from Chania though is to take you're time walking through the gardens else you will be sat in the restaurant for quite a while before the return bus!

  • Very nice botanical garden since all of the plants grow freely instead of in a greenhouse as in some places, if you plan on going through the whole garden I reccomend having at least 2hours since there is a long walk and a lot to see. The walk is sometimes challenging since there is a lot of elevation. There is a shortcut which halves the time if you do not have 2h Entrance fee is 6 euro per person, child's under 4 I believe is free

  • A really beautiful place, best seen on a cool day as a lot of walking and climbing. For €6 for adults, included a bottle of water, great value for money. Allow 3 hours to see everything.
