Still a peaceful haven
Sougia is a village in Chania on the island of Crete. The small village of Sougia in the south-west of Crete has managed to remain unaffected by the growth of tourism in Crete. It is still a peaceful haven, with a long beach. At the east side of the beach, is where the nudists meet.
Although it is not one of the larger towns of the province of Selino, Sougia is popular to the tourists, not only for its lovely beach, but also for the impressive mountains and interesting remains of an ancient city and the old Byzantine churches.
You will find many taverns and restaurants in Sougia, with enough good food and good prices. Many of them are on the beach, while others are in the village. There are also bars for your evening entertainment, but have nothing to do with the clubs that you meet in the tourist areas of the northern coast or in major cities
The village has appealed to visitors from northern Europe since the early 1970s and many of the people that you will meet in Sougia have been visiting the island for quite a few times.
Sougia is reached from Chania by car in 2 hours or by ferry boats from Paleochora, Agia Roumeli, Loutro and Hora Sfakion.
