Beaches Chora Sfakion

Sfakia is a town in the southern part of Crete approximately 70 km from Chania and 65 km from Rethymno. Even though sparsely populated, the area is quite vibrant during the summer time with many shops and places to eat along the sea front.

Sfakia also has a port that connects the town with Loutro, Agia Roumeli, Sougia, Paleochora, and Gavdos island. Most visitors will pass by Sfakia returning by boat from Samaria Gorge to take the bus back to Chania.

The area of Sfakia is linked historically with wars against the Venetians, Turks and Germans and it has been said it is the only region of Crete that has never been conquered. The impassable mountains and the rocky beaches were fundamental to the resistance of the locals against enemy forces.
