The nearest airport is close to CHANIA, located northwest of Crete (see map). From here you can take a taxi/minibus to the small village Chora Sfakion, located on the south coast. The drive across the island, takes approximately 1,5 hours, crossing Lefka Ori – "The White Mountains".
In the harbour of SFAKIA, for the final transport, you take a boat. The boat sails along the beautiful coastline for 15-20 minutes, according to weather conditions, to the final stop FINIKAS.
