Loutro is one of those places in Crete that can still be reached only on your own feet or by water transport. This peculiar isolation, however, does not prevent this place from becoming one of the top tourist attractions on the island in recent years. From year to year, the number of people visiting Loutro is systematically growing. During the holiday season, during the so-called tourist peak hours, the local small pebble beach can be really crowded. If, when planning a vacation in Crete, your priority is peace and quiet, then you should keep this in mind.
In our video, however, you can see that at the end of the day, life in Loutro returns to relative normal. Taverns are emptying, the beach is emptying, and the narrow "streets" are the few tourists who have chosen Loutro as their final destination.
