Sailing Holidays in Sfakia

Sfakia is a mountainous area in the southwestern part of Crete, in the Chania regional unit. It is known for its history of resistance against invaders, an impressive nature, very hospitable people, splendid weather, quiet beaches with crystal clear sea water, good food and wine, and its marvelous opportunities to walk along the coast, hike in the mountains, and go through several of the gorges that cross the mountains.

The famous Samaria gorge lies in Sfakia. The area is quiet, being without an ongoing coastal road. Transport here is by ferry boats. Sfakia, in the southwest of Crete, is Europe's southernmost point.
