Family Fun Amazonas Animal Park

Amazonas Park is an animal park and rescue center located between Malia and Agios Nikolaos, an approximate 25 minute drive from each. It is accessible from the village of Neapoli and a drive up the mountain.

Depending on the time of the day, there is feeding of the animals, where you get the chance to feed the monkeys and the lemurs, which is great fun and shouldn’t be missed!
