About
Walking in the Botanical park & Gardens of Crete offes spiritual tranquility and visual pleasure in addition to knowledge on plants and their material . Nearly 20 hectares of land are waiting to welcome you, full of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants in a park different from others, where the land’s formation and the region’s microclimate make it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals! In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt centennial olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the dismal fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin. The newest and one of the most interesting sites of the Prefecture of Chania lies only 18 kilometers outside the city, on the feet of the White Mountains. It is ideal for visitors of all ages, combining enjoyments that only Crete can offer!

Good 2,5km walk

Beautiful garden and park. I was truly amazed and even touched by it. Gardening is my hobby so I can really see the amount of work put into this. Totally worth visiting, very relaxing.

Wonderful and peaceful Garden, a special choice if you are in Crete
Aug 2021
I've rent a car from the hotel I stayed in Rethymno to see this beautiful place, and it turned out as one of the greatest experience I had in Crete.
The area where the garden is located is on beautiful plateau and it felt good driving towards the hill.
I was welcomed by the garden staff in such a gentle and friendly manner - giving great description and guide of the place, one bottle of water for free, and a small flower which fell from the wall was brought together with the menu. The view from the restaurant terrace displays a great panorama, being on top of hill, but be aware of strong wind (which is cool, but need to be careful on things which can fly)
As mentioned by the staff on your arrival, it's about 2 km path to walk, taking almost 2 hours if you walk slowly and check the beautiful things around you.
Very important to bring your sports shoes, not the beach shoes.

Definitely a must see near Chania
Aug 2021
Wonderful experience. We walked inside for more than 4 hours. Your general culture will be enriched with plenty of plant species not only from Crete, but from many other parts of the world. The restaurant at the entrance offers delicious organic Cretan food.

Botanical Park and Gardens, well worth a visit.
Jul 2021 • Family
A very interesting garden which all the family enjoyed, including 2 and 4 year olds. It’s natural and well presented plants and trees lined the pathways in a gentle slope down to where the animals were kept in their paddocks. Peacocks are roaming freely throughout the gardens. On the return back up to the restaurant, we all enjoyed the cooling mist area.
The restaurant provided exceptional organic meals, with ingredients mostly produced (where possible) at the gardens. Excellent service at the restaurant, with very attentive staff.

Really excellent
May 2021 • Couples
Contrary to many, this botanical garden doesn’t claim to be a scientific one. That is, science is secondary and plants are presented in a mixed order. Still you’ ll be able to see hundreds of ornamental, food or medical plants, from all over the world (including of. Purse many Mediterranean and Cretan ones) each with a clear short label. The path is long (over 2km and not flat) but clearly marked and a real pleasure to walk. The whole place is really welcoming and absolutely worth a visit. On top of that the restaurant is excellent. Not expensive and well worth the price.

Beautiful
Sep 2020 • Couples
A beautiful few hours wandering the mountainside of the Botanical Gardens.
A bargain at 6 euros per person (you should put your prices up 🙂).
Well laid out and always something to catch your eye along with the different aromas at every turn.
Steady footwear is a must!
Finished with a refreshing homemade juice from the gardens.
