Sfakia – Loutro – Marmara
Marmara bay is a hidden paradise on the south coast of Chania prefecture. Marmara in Greek means marbles and is named after the white washed rocks that enclose the beach. The sea caves with the amazing crystal waters and the end tip of the Aradena gorge behind the beach are contributing to the uniqueness of the landscape.
The nearest road is miles away and you can get there by boat from Sfakia bay or on foot, if you take the E4 trail or cross the Aradaina gorge. The beach is organized with chairs and umbrellas and a small tavern serves refreshments and delicious traditional dishes.
Loutro is a seaside village, in a natural bay, 71km south of the city of Chania. It is a very charming village for those who seek a different experience. Forget cars and motorcycles here. The only way to get there is either on foot or by ferry boat from Sfakia. The hotels are cozy with no pools, since one can dive anywhere along its coast. You can order fresh fish from most of the taverns. The weather is very good most of the days, because the village is located in a small bay protected from the winds. There are restaurants, coffee shops, an organised beach and canoes to rent.
