Some parts of the island have been overpowered by tourist resorts and massive hotels, but fortunately Crete does still allow you to exploreendless beaches, numerous villages, remote mountains and some natural sights as caves and gorges for those who take pains to avoid the 'madding crowds'.
Livari is a comletely hidden and unknown area between Goudouras and Xerokambos, with a gorge and 2 small beaches. The place has a uniquebeauty totaly far away from any tourist or organized activity! The visitor will enjoy to hike arround. The nature endowed this area with a rare wild beauty, bare rocks and mountains full of herbs and spices.
A wild canyon is situated 2km away from the beach area with about 1 -1,5 km length but there is no way to cross the gorge and we recommendnot to try due to its difficulty. The best time to visit Livari iswinter and spring.
