Where to stay in Sfakia

Thanks to the rugged terrain of Crete's southwestern coastline, Sfakia remains a tiny settlement with just a few hotels, which offer clean rooms with sea views. Most people rush through Sfakia on their way to the island's more popular resorts, which means that you can choose from affordable rooms in town even at the height of tourist season. A good alternative to hotels, the area's family-run guesthouses provide simply furnished rooms, hearty local dishes, and easy access to nearby beaches.
