Beach Hopping to Glyka Nera Beach, Marmara Beach and Loutro Village
- Full Day
- Speedboat Trips
A wonderful way to discover three of the most stunning beaches of Crete.
A convenient way to discover the unique beaches of Glyka Nera and Marmara, where you will have enough time to enjoy the turquoise waters as well as the secluded fishing village of Loutro, with no roads, only accessible by the sea!
We take you from Sfakia to Glyka Nera (Sweet Water beach) where you have free time to enjoy a swim in the clear turquoise water. Then at the time you arrange with your captain, you will be picked up and taken to Marmara (marble) beach, where you also have free time to enjoy the area. There is a wonderful restaurant overlooking the beach which it's our top recommendation for a lunch stop. You arrange a time with your captain again to be picked up and he will take you to your 3rd stop, the small, picturesque village of Loutro, the ideal location for an afternoon coffee and swim. You can be picked up at your preferred time and brought back to Sfakia.
Loutro is such an incredibly soporific place, where there’s absolutely nothing ( ... almost ) to do but eat, drink, swim and laze - and where you fast lose any desire to do anything else. Loutro evokes some great emotion - produced perhaps by the unique combination of the steep, harsh, rock mountainsides - audibly decorated with the clinking of goat bells - the sun visibly changing the panorama in view as its ark lights different aspects of the slopes forming the bowl - the bay that houses Loutro, the often-warm sea, the history, and the people. This magical place.
Marmara or Dialiskari beach, with crystal clear, azure waters is formed at the exit of the stunning Aradaina Gorge. Actually, it is an amazing secluded and protected small pebbly bay. Marmara in Greek means "marbles" and took her name from the soft colorful rocks and sea caves, that consist of the most striking feature of the place. Here there's a charming little taverna with authentic Cretan cuisine and maybe one of the best goats in the oven or tsigariasto (stewed).
Glyka Nera or Sweet Water Beach, with deep blue watercolor and nice pebbles and freshwater that gushes from the pebbles (therefore the water is even in summer cold, due to the springs). The beach is accessed by boat or on the foot from the E4 European Path from Sfakia Village. In addition. there is a small tavern on a rock and a few tamarisk trees on the beach, offering the important shade during the hot summer days.
Take in the spectacular scenery during this beach hopping, available during morning or afternoon hours.
This beach hopping starts and finishes in the port of Chora Sfakion.
