Chora Sfakíon or Sfakia is a small town on the south coast of Chania. It is the capital of the remote and mountainous region of Sfakia, and is a small town. It lies on the south coast near the end of the Sfakiano Gorge, 74km south of Chania city.

Vrissi is the main beach of Chora Sfakion and is located at the west end of the town. This is a nice pebbly beach, well organised and close to the amenities of the town. You  can reach the beach by walking in the narrow streets of the settlement. Aboive the east end of the beach, you will see the old Byzantine church of Saint George (Agios Georgios).

There is a smaller, less nice beach, directly next to the small harbor (Limani) of Sfakia, in front of the tavernas, quite well organised. This is the harbor from where the ferry runs to Agia Roumeli, Loutro, Sougia, Gavdos island or Paleochora. Above the beach you will meet a memorial commemorating that from this bay, between 28th May and 1st June 1941, the last Australian, British and New Zealand forces were evacuated by British and Australian warships after the fierce battle of Crete.
