Introducing Sougia

Sougia (soo-yah), 67km from Hania, is a tiny laid-back beach resort with a wide curve of sand-and-pebble beach and a tree-lined coastal road. Sougia’s tranquillity has been preserved largely because of archaeological remains at the eastern end of the beach which prohibit development. It lies at the foot of a narrow, twisting road that also deters most tour buses and passing traffic. There are a few small complexes of rooms, a few tavernas, a couple of lazy beach bars, two beach clubs and a small settlement of campers and nudists at the eastern end of the beach.
