New National Road is a peculiar communication backbone of the northern coast of Crete. A significant part of tourist traffic is carried out through this road. However, due to the difficult mountainous terrain, not all areas of the island are as well connected as the northern part of Crete. The wild south coast of the western part of the island has its own maritime equivalent of this land route - it is a permanent ferry connection connecting the most important towns of this region. Several times during the day the ships sail on the route connecting the city of Paleochora with Chora Sfakion . On the way, they also call at the port of Sougia, Agia Roumeli and Loutro . The film depicts the unloading of people and vehicles in the port of Chora Sfakion. In the summer season, the vast majority of disembarking travelers are tourists who have crossed the Samaria Gorge. A ferry ride is the final stage of their trip ... after descending ashore they will soon get on buses that will take them to hotels.
In reference to the recently published description of the airport in Chania, today we present you a movie showing the landing at the airport. Ioannis Daskalogiannis. It is worth remembering how most of us greeted Kreta the more that the holiday season is about to end, and for some people the holidays are distant memories.
Of course, you can get to Loutro by ferry from Chora Sfakion, but we again set a slightly more ambitious plan and we passed a part of the E4 route between these towns. An additional advantage of this solution is the opportunity to see the amazing Glyka Nera beach, ie Słodka Woda.
