Port information

Hora Sfakion anchorage

Location: (28250) 91292 VHF Ch 12
This is small fishing village 10km east of Loutro, in the south of Crete. In the summer months the ferry boats that bring hikers from the Faragi Samarias, dock frequently at the new pier on the east side of the village. There is a new harbour being constructed on this side also. The village is very visible from the sea as it climbs up the sides of the cove.

Facilities: The village has some shopping facilities. Fuel may be purchased in town. There is also post and telephone office for international calls. There is a pharmacy but no doctor or dentist. There are no port authorities but there is a police station at the harbour. There are many hotels and tavernas. Also there are taxis available and a daily bus to Chania. There is a ramp for small boats beside the pier in the new harbour. The old harbour is suitable for small boats only and is very crowded.

Comments: At present there is anchorage only in the incomplete harbour. This gives protection from N, S, and SE winds; it is open to the west. The ramp is very dangerous in west winds and should not be used. There is a light on the small island west of the harbour in front of the village.
