Sfakia is located in the southeastern part of the prefecture of Chania. The massifs of the White Mountains, which end up steeply into the Libyan Sea, as well as the gorges that form, create a beautiful natural landscape. It is an area that combines the mountain and the sea harmoniously.
Sfakia is located 74 kilometers south of the city of Chania and near the exit of the Imbros Gorge. It has two small ports. It is a seaside village with 300 inhabitants and has all the necessary infrastructure to facilitate the daily life of both locals and visitors. The beaches of Chora of Sfakia are pebbles with emerald waters and for those who seek their peace, they can visit the quiet beach “Vrisi”, west of the village.
In the south of the area, there are many seaside villages and beautiful secluded and organized beaches for quiet dives. Well-known among others are the Sweet Water and the Loutro. Sfakia owns most of the Samaria Gorge, which ends at Agia Roumeli.
For many, Sfakia is the most authentic part of Cretan culture and a place with a remarkable historical heritage that everyone should know.
