Loutro - the right place for relaxing holidays

Loutro, Crete - Years ago still the paragon of solitude; with its handful of houses, some archaeological ruins, small hotels and tavernas, Loutro has remained a picturesque spot in spite of the meanwhile overall reservation possibilities.


Attainable only by boat or hike, tourism has also come here, but Loutro still offers enough peace for a few days of relaxation. The climax of the day is the pier manoeuvre of the ferry to Agia Roumeli on the narrow gravel beach.

In the surroundings of the former insider tip Loutro, the destinations for more or less extended excursions are plentiful. Whether to the neighbouring bays, up to Anopolis, by the Aradena ravine or up to the exit of the Samaria Gorge at Agia Roumeli: like in all places in the southwest, numerous tour possibilities arise in the rocky landscape.

How to get there:

By boat from either Chora Sfakion or Paleochora. Since Loutro is car-free, there is no point in taking your car along.
