Loutro, a small village located on the South side of Crete. No cars allowed. No streets. Just a pedestrian sidewalk stretching from the ferry debarkation point to the opposite side of the bay. Loutro, quiet star filled nights with the sound and smell of the ocean just outside your hotel window/balcony. There are several tavernas and hotels to chose from. To get there, you must pick up the ferry in either Chora Sfaki (Sfakia) or Paliohora. Or you can reach it by hiking the E4 trail.
