Finikas and Likos bays - 1.9 out of 5 based on 681 votes

Likkos and Finikas (or Phoenix) are two adjacent small harbors near Loutro of Sfakia, located 83km south of Chania city, 900m and 700m west of Loutro respectively, separated by a huge boulder. Likkos beach is rockier than Finikas and hosts a small pier for small boats. There is a tavern on the beach and some rooms to let.

The scenery is very similar in the settlement of Finikas which has a bigger and more enclosed harbour. The beach here is pebbly and slightly organized. There is one scenic tavern on the beach and some rooms to rent. Both places are crossed by the part of the European E4 hiking trail connecting Marmara beach (Aradena Gorge exit) to the village of Loutro.

Both places are ideal for very quiet holidays, but avoid it if you want some noise. You can reach both harbors through a passable dirt road coming from Livaniana (via Anopolis). The easiest way to reach both beaches is by getting a boat from Chora Sfakion or Loutro.
