Lykos beach

Beach description

Likos is a coastal hamlet featuring a diminutive port, situated 900m west of Loutro and 83km south of Chania, on the outskirts of the virtually uninhabited village of Livaniana. Nearby to the east lies the somewhat larger community of Finikas (Phoenix), with a rocky hill serving as a border between them.

The beach at Lykos, in comparison to Finikas, is considerably rocky and houses a small dock for boat arrivals, although it is exposed to southern gusts. Despite not standing out as a beach, its serenity and abundant marine life make this secluded spot worth exploring. Traditional taverns, offering a limited number of rooms, provide a chance for visitors to escape their hectic daily routines.

The European pathway E4, connecting the Marmara beach at the exit of the Aradena Gorge with Loutro, traverses Lykos. The most frequent means of arriving, however, is by private or rented boat from Hora Sfakion or Loutro. Another option for those preferring to arrive by car is to drive from Chora Sfakion to Anopolis, then continue to the village of Livaniana. A dirt road from there leads to Likos and Finikas. The drive from Anopolis, taking approximately half an hour, is thoroughly enjoyable due to the stunning natural beauty and untamed landscape.
