One of the most southern places on Crete is the village of Lendas, 73 km southeast from Iraklion.
Meanwhile there is a good connection and not much tourism. The village lies at the coast with the mountain in the background. Some taverns und not expensive rooms. Who wants to make camping should go to the other beach nearby.

The shape of the peninsula is responsible for the name Lendas, what means lion. Archeological sites from ancient Greek and Roman periods, also Byzantine churches. The ancient Levin and it's harbour were located here.
