Chania, Crete 

Loutro is a small picturesque seaside resort village located on the south coast of the prefecture of Chania, in the region of Sfakia, Crete.

It is not a real village with permanent residents. It's a resort that operates mainly in the summer season and maybe on weekends or on holidays throughout the year.

Here there are no roads or car traffic, and apart from the ferry that comes and leaves, you will see small boats used either for pleasure or transportation, because the village is only accessible by sea (or walking).

Holidays in Loutro

Expect to find only the most necessary for your holidays. There are several restaurants, a couple of cafes that turn into bars at night, mini markets, as well as several small hotels painted in the colors of white and blue, all with sea views. 

Reasons to Spend Your Holidays Here

  • Are you seeking the absolute peace and tranquility in a beautiful place?
  • Do you like the place and want to relax at the beach under the hot sun of southern Crete, or on the terrace of a hotel overlooking the sea? 
  • Are you open to meet new people? The place is very small, and you may be given the opportunity to make new friends, as you enjoy the evening at the hotel bar. 
  • Doesn't bother you the fact that the village is not accessible by road?
  • Do you want to hike on beautiful trails? 

Options for Hiking

Hiking is one of the reasons many people choose to stay here. Take a look to the options that you have.

You'll notice that all the trail routes pass by the sea, so you will have the chance to combine your hikes with a dip in the crystal-clear water of the Libyan sea.
