If you make it over the White Mountains of Crete, down winding roads and through more desolate stretches of land, Chora Sfakia welcomes you. The journey to Chora Sfakia is scenic and unforgettable in its own right, but once you’re here, it’s time to take in all that makes this village special. A small fishing village, Chora Skafia is less popular with the tourists, though the Sfakians are known to be quite friendly. The town is steeped in a rich history. Tour some of the ancient ruins of the old fortress, explore the Cave of Daskaloyiannis, and bask in the sun on Sweetwater Beach. We also recommend sampling a Sfakian pie made with fresh cheese and honey.
