We visited here whilst staying at Eleonas Country Village. It is a nice place to have a stroll around, and then stop and have a coffee at the end!

This was described as a good place for birdwatching and a good place to visit. It was seriously not worth visiting. Three lonely geese on a pond and no birdlife around. An overpriced cafe who never even offered a menu. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND FUEL

Sorry to say but not worth for visiting. We were driving for one hour and forty five minutes from Agios Nikolaos to Lake of Zaros and for my opinion nothing to see.
There are much more beautiful places to visit instead of Lake of Zaros. Waste of time having in mind what beautiful places you can visit in Crete.

We visited Zaros village during the winter. The lake is the best place to visit nearby. You can enjoy the nature of this small lake while having a coffee by the lake.

Zaros Lake was one of our trips from Matala during our holiday. We enjoyed the lovely nature there, with fish, turtles and many water birds. We went for a hike from the lake to the Rouvas gorge. It was wonderful.

Walked to the lake from Eleonas Traditional Cottages,Zaros which made a nice round trip of about an hour. It was so relaxing watching the bird life and the turtles swimming. There was a Taverna and Bar area.

We visited the lake on the morning we were leaving Zaros. We had stayed one night at the Hotel Idi, and after breakfast we popped up to have a look at the lake. It was quite early (about 9.30am), and it was so peaceful an still. We were the only ones there. We had a little walk all the way round the lake, managing to upset the resident geese. After much honking and hissing (the geese made a bit of noise too!!) we walked past them and completed our circuit of the lake. There were some quite big fish visible in the water. The walk led us through the rear of the taverna, if we ever go back to Zaros it would be nice to go there for a drink. There was a garden area along one side of the lake which was also very pleasant. The lake is fenced all the way round so you couldn't get into the water even if you wanted to. We'd definitely go back there if we were in the area again.

The lake features small and huge fishes, mainly trouts, and water turtles. The water is pure and cannot be touched in any way. Around the water there are trees offering shade, a good taverna with excellent food, playgrounds for kids, walkways. A steep ascent to the gorge starts at the back of the taverna.

nice place to relax near the lake where you can see different kind of fishes, birds, ducks....you can also walk the gorge if you like and have time. There is also two taverns near by the lake with delicious traditional cretan food.
