Iligas is an amazing turquoise-water sandy beach, 1km west of Chora Sfakion and 74km south of Chania. Iligas is located at the end of Kavi Gorge, that starts close to Anopolis. There are two beaches, separated with a big cavy rock.
The main beach is bigger and can be accessed by walking a short distance from the main road of Sfakia-Anopolis. The second bay that is located on the east of the former can be accessed only by boat or by swimming from the main beach.
There is one small taverna with rooms to let near Iligas beach, but there are more amenities in Chora Sfakion. Iligas is one of the nicest accessible beaches of south Crete. There are many caves, in which you can keep yourself in shadow. It's quite easy to access and is close to Sfakia, so you can visit that by walking from Sfakia (taking 10-15 min).
