Sailing Holidays in Gerani Cave

The cave of Gerani is one of the most beautiful ones in the prefecture of Rethymno and in the whole of Crete. It is located 7 km west of Rethymnon, at the location Kamari and nearby Gerani beach.The cave was accidentally discovered in 1969 during construction works for the road. The current entrance is not the original, but was opened by the explosives used to open the road. The initial entry had been blocked by rocks before the end of the Late Neolithic period.Because the cave was sealed, the stratigraphy of the Early Neolithic II, Middle Neolithic and Late Neolithic periods were exceptional.
