Ferry boats on the South coast of Crete

Ferry routes on the South coast of Crete

The south coast of western Crete is very rugged and doesn't have a coastal road. Whilst this has probably helped to keep tourist developments low key, it makes moving from village to village rather difficult and this is why there is a ferry service between the vilages of Paleochora, Sougia, Agia Roumeli, Loutro and Hora Sfakion as well as to the island of Gavdos.
In the winter months the service is kept to a minimum and may stop for a week or more if the weather is bad and the sea stormy. In the months of April to October it aims at being regular, sea conditions permitting.

Ferry time-table

You can find the ferry time-table at www.anendyk.gr

Note that the time-table can change quite suddenly and frequently (I once received two time-table updates in a single day from the ferry company!).

You can view the prices at the page https://anendyk.gr/prices/

Additionally there are smaller ferry routes between Hora Sfakion - Sweet Water beach and Loutro and Hora Sfakion - Loutro - Finix and Marmara from April to late October.
