Sougia ( Crete ) lies at the mouth of Agia Eirini gorge in the south-west of the island, 70 kilometres south of Chania. It stands out for its relaxed, large, beautiful beach which is never too full of people. It is a peaceful haven, plenty of good accommodation, with a few beach front cafés and excellent places to eat. From early April to late October Sougia attracts visitors looking for a relaxing holiday away from mass-tourism.
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 quite a few times.
