Re: Anopolis/Aradena/Marmara then Loutro

I am not confident that avoiding the ladders really helps. Three years ago, when I was last there, the steps route was more a slope of loose stones, and the handrail was hardly holding itself. And you have an unspoiled view to the bottom of the gorge which is about 30-40 m below. In my opinion, the ...

Re: live beach cam

What a pity that beach webcam is offline for several weeks now. I miss the view along the coast towards Loutro.

Is there any information why, and when it might be working again?

Re: Samaria gorge closed because of the heat wave

A little bit strange regarding Balos - because an excursion boat sailed today from Kissamos harbour.

Re: Ferries from Chora Sfakia

Thank you for your reports, Bob. During my visit in May / June this year in the Sfakia area, I also experienced the very friendly wellcome almost everywhere. People had time to sit together with the tourists, chat a lot and were relatively relaxed regarding the difficult situation. I would say this ...

Re: Ferries from Chora Sfakia

As far as I know you don't need a test if you take a boat along the cost. For the journey to Gavdos a test is required. In addition, you have to fill out a form.

Re: Buses

If you have booked in the village of Skaloti you should be prepared that there is no regular bus connection from Chora Sfakion. Therefore, in my opinion it is the best option to hire a car from Heraklion. Otherwise, you are basically stuck in this small village during your holidays.

Re: Samaria gorge partly opens on Saturday 22 May

The Samaria Gorge is open now. And the public busses depart from Chora Sfakion and from Sougia at about 18.30 hrs.

It seems to be a good time to walk through the gorge, since at least yesterday there were only few people who arrived in Aghia Roumeli.

Re: Covid tests in Sfakia (not Chania)

To get an answer on your question I would suggest that you contact the village health centre in Chora Sfakion. They should know about the nearest testing facilities. The antigen tests do not require more than 30 minutes before you get the test results. I am certain that there are labs in Chania and ...
