Sfakiano Gorge

A cloudy morning on 18th October, so we decided to walk from Vritomartis up the Sfakiano Gorge. We walked for about 1.5 hours then returned climbing out of the Gorge by taking the footpath marked with red dots to the 12 Apostles Church in Hora Sfakion. Very interesting walk - we saw no-one else.

Aradena to Agia Roumeli

Today we caught the 9am bus from Sfakia to Aradena. We then walked towards Agios Ioannis turning off at the footpath to the Sellouda. What a breathtaking view and dramatic climb down to Agios Pavlos where we spent a lovely couple of hours sunbathing and swimming before completing our walk to Agia Ro...

Re: Sfakia report, Oct 10

Saturday's weather was spectacular with temperatures in very close to 30°C late afternoon. We took spectacular sunset photos just below Vritomartis. Still beautiful sat on our balcony listening to cigales chirping in tune to Vrito outside music. The coming week's weather looks equally superb. We sha...

Re: Bus timetable update

Thanks Jean. We were hoping to get to Aradena then walk to Agia Roumeli stopping off at Agios Pavlos beach then getting ferry back. As we don't arrive until 10th, we might need a plan B.

Re: Bus timetable update

Hi,

Can anybody advise if the bus from Chora Sfakion to Aradena runs at 09h00 during October. I've researched kTel site and have drawn a blank.

Thanks,

Huw and Sandra

Re: ANENDYK special ferry trips for this week

We will be staying in Paleochora in early October and hope to visit Sougia by ferry. Does anyone know if there is a return fare as opposed to the 11€20 each way? We plan on walking part of the Agia Irini Gorge from Sougia end in the morning, before spending the afternoon on the beach. Any tips or a...

Re: Sfakia report, April 1st, Amoudi beach

The access via the Gorge is fenced off by the garage and boat yard. Easiest way to the beach is to take the road to Vritomartis then skirt around the hotel following the road to the sea. At the bottom of the long straight take the stone path that leads under the cliffs. This takes you to the beach a...
