Valenti (Greek: Βαλέντι) is a rock close to the northwestern coast of Crete in the Aegean Sea.[1] It is just south of the island of Imeri Gramvousa and the islet of Arnaouti.[1] Administratively, it is located within the municipality of Kissamos, in Chania regional unit.

Valenti is mentioned in poems and mantinades and usually with Gramvousa.[1] In March 2008 a fatal nautical accident, resulting in the death of a 42 year old man, occurred close to the rock and it is noted in a bulletin of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Islands and Fisheries.[2]
