Welcome in the official website of Loutro

loutro0001sThe seaside of village is located at a distance of about 71 km. south of Chania, at the end of Cape Mouri. It is believed that this was the site of the ancient city of Finikas, and was the port of ancient Anopolis. Later, it became the winter time port of the town of Sfakia, due to the fact that the enclosed bay and the small island in its entrance create a natural harbor where ships can be safe even at very bad weather conditions.

The only access is by boat or as you wish, by foot !
Loutro is a place for those people who want something different.
For example there are no big hotels with swimming pools.
There are no overcrowded streets, restaurants and beaches, there are no cars!!.
A small picturesque fishing village in south west Crete, not yet spoilt by mass tourism. Discover the beautiful beaches like glyka nera ( sweet water ),timios stavros, pervolaki, marmara, (the most are naturist beach) and enjoy the sun, sea and peaceful tranquility.
Here you will find the rest and peace you are looking for and if you want there are lots of things to do !
Enjoy walking in the scenic, unspoilt mountain countryside with its valleys and gorges. of course you never think about the weather forecast , the weather is almost always warm and sunny. The great high mountains on the north side of the village give a big protection during the seasons.
The people are friendly and hospitable and will always be there for you.
