Sfakia beaches



Lykos beach
(3 votes)


Likos is a seaside settlement with a small harbor located 900m west of Loutro and 83km south of Chania, at the periphery of the almost deserted village of Livaniana. A short distance to the east is the slightly larger settlement Finikas (Phoenix), from which it is separated by a rocky hill.

The beach of Lykos is quite rocky in relation to Finikas and hosts a small pier where the boats stop, but is open to the south winds. Generally, it is not something special as a beach, but absolute tranquility and rich seabed make exploring this isolated place a nice experience. There are some traditional taverns with few rooms where one can be isolated from the bustling everyday life.

Lykos is crossed by the European path E4 that connects the beach of Marmara at the exit of the Aradena Gorge with Loutro. However, the most common way of access is by private or rented boat from Hora Sfakion or Loutro. Also if you want to come by car, a good alternative is to drive from Chora Sfakion to Anopolis and then follow the road to the village of Livaniana. From here starts a dirt road that leads to Likos and Finikas. The course from Anopolis takes about half an hour and is absolutely enjoyable in terms of natural beauty and wild landscape.
