Hora Sfakion. A wild beauty overlooking the Libyan Sea.

PLOUTARCHOS CHIOU - Friday, March 04, 2016

Hora Sfakion is the capital of the province of Sfakia municipality. The region of Sfakia is located in southern Crete in Chania and is one of the most less populated municipalities in Greece.

The village is 75 kilometers from Chania, and is built in front of a small bay overlooking the Libyan Sea and above dominates the Leyka Ori (White Mountains). The landscape is wild and combines mountain and sea.

The name Sfakia has three possible origins. First source is the from the word "Sfax" meaning earth gap since around the area there are several canyons with major the Samaria Canyon. The second possible source of the name origin is from the word "Sfakia" meaning oleander. And the third source is that initially the area was called Sfikia but due to corruption it became Sfakia.

Hora Sfakion is ideal for nature lovers because of the geomorphology of the area. Basically it is recommended for quiet holidays and excursions in the wild.

The area is suitable for hiking and for holidays by the sea.
