Kourtaliotiko Gorge or Preveli Gorge?

seeing this gorge refered to as both, I'm guessing not, there is only Kourtaliotiko Gorge on TripAdvisor, but I don't see much information on where it starts, where to park, how to get there, does it in fact end at the Preveli Beach or somewhere else. Really wanting to do this beach and the hike down sounds fun. Also I did see somewhere a car will take you back up, what's the information on that. Thanks for your help with this in advance.

Anso Travel in Plakias run trips from Plakias, with a bus to the entrance, walking down part of the gorge (part of the walk is in the river), down to Preveli beach (8km walk). The return is by boat from Preveli beach to Plakias.

There is a parking area at the start of the route, with a bit of a wall and an archway. If you are staying in Plakias you could get a taxi there (or time it right for the Rethymno bus perhaps). Otherwise you will have to get up from Plakias by taxi or bus to pick up your car.

You will need good shoes for the walk and some sea shoes to walk in the river. Also take your swimming things for the beach and a well deserved swim at the end of the walk. You also need to walk through shallow water to get on the boat.

If you are an experienced walker you may be able to follow the route on your own, but you may be best taking an organised trip.
