At the South coast of Chania region (between Paleochora and Sougia) there is a small bay, protected from the North by high hills ending in a small beach with crystal blue water. The path is part of the European E4 and most of the visitors walk from Sougia (80-90 min).
Alternately, you can drive on a dirt steep road if you turn left after the village Prodromi (there is a small sign), you park the car in an open area, where you can see the bay on your left, and you walk down for about 20min. The easiest way is by boat (sea-taxi) from Sougia.
No matter how you get there, you will feel the strong energy of a place used as a therapy center since the ancient times. Today the visitor can see the Asklepion (the healing temple) with a mosaic floor, a marble altar-base of a statue, a hole to place sacrifices, the ruins of a small theatre, an ancient spring (where you can drink fresh water – the spring was used for therapies), and two 13th century churches.
The landscape is as impressive as the ancient findings with many herbs, carob and olive trees (some of them may have similar age with the temple!). There is also a nice, small pebble beach in case you need a refreshing swim. If you stand looking at the beach and you turn right, you can notice up on the hill a few stone constructions with barrel shape roofs. These are tombs since the Roman times (in the cases of not successful therapies!).
