Beach description

Finikas, also known as Phoenix, is a quaint harbour situated in the Sfakia province, about 83km south of Chania city. It lies approximately 700m west of Loutro, within the broader Livaniana village area. The area was named after the ancient town of Phoenix, whose remnants can still be found near Loutro. It served as the port for the ancient city of Anopolis. The European E4 hiking trail that links Marmara beach (the Aradena Gorge exit) to Loutro village traverses through Finikas. A massive rock to the west separates Finikas from the Likos harbour.

Within the Finikas port, there is an attractive pebble beach. It’s reasonably well-equipped with umbrellas and canoes. Visitors can take advantage of the reasonably priced boat trips to and from Loutro and Marmara. There’s also a charming tavern right on the beach and several rooms where one can unwind and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

You can access Finikas via a drivable dirt road from Livaniana (through Anopolis). Alternatively, the easiest way to reach the beaches is by taking a boat from Chora Sfakion or Loutro.
