Loutro, a small fishing village 71km south of Chania, at the end of cape Mouri.
There is the possibility to stay in the village, as there are many hotels, and use it as your base to dash out to the beaches around the area. A beach worthwhile visiting is Glyka Nera which is east of Loutro. Additionally you can hire a canoe and sail towards the nearby beaches of Timios Stavros and Perivolaki, 1km east of Loutro just before the beach Glyka Nera. Even the beach of Loutro or Keramos are two very good choices, especially when the south wind blows in the area. The beaches have thick pebbles, they are well organized and the sea is always calm with a deep blue and green colour. If you like to swim with a mask, it is very possible to see the frequent visitors of the beach, the sea turtles Careta-Careta.
Loutro is a traditional fishing village in the southwest of Crete, unaffected by the massive tourism, ideal for those who want something different.
