Hora Sfakion

The village of Hora Sfakion seen from a spot just to the West of Ilingas beach. Though the day is grey and cloudy the area by Ilingas has a strong turquoise colour, as is often the case.This is due to the movement of fine silt from the bottom, moved by the large amounts of underwater springs that come out in the area (carried in cave systems from the gorge that is just behind and the mountains beyond) as well as wave action and sea currents.
