Best sunset in west of Crete
The village Sfinari, is a small and traditional village, in a beautiful gulf, offering unique views.
It is located in the western part of Crete, between the crystal blue beach of Falasarna and the shallow turquoise lagoon of Elafonisi. If you choose to stay in a villa in Sfinari, you will enjoy one of the most magical sunsets that you have ever seen.
Other highlights of Sfinari are the wild beauty of its landscape and its residents with their well known Cretan hospitality. They will make you feel like home! In the village, you will also find a couple of taverns, serving fresh fish in a valuable price. In Kasteli, which is very close to Sfinari, anyone can find everything he/she needs: more taverns, cafes, super market, shops, e.t.c.
The main village is not on the beach, but a little bit more up to the hill. Down in the bay, there are also a couple of taverns. The beach has not only sand, but also pebbles and you will enjoy relaxation and tranquility, as it is really remote.
The route towards Sfinari is a spectacular one with beautiful views from up to the mountains, down to the shores. The road is well acessible, though can get quite narrow from time to time. Since you're driving along cliffs most of the time. it's advisable to take your time and drive slowly.
