Apokoronas is an area that extends in the north-eastern part of the prefecture of Chania, at the foot of the White Mountains to the north coast of Crete. It is characterized by green hills and fertile land, due to the abundance of water that comes from the mountains, creating the only natural lake in Crete, as well as rivers that cross the area, before finding their way to the sea.
