Sougia Plot for Sale: The Location
Sougia is a small yet, picturesque village, which is located 65 km southwest away from the city of Chania. Despite its popularity, it is a place that remains unaffected by the mass tourism industry preserving its warm and authentic character. It is a perfect place for peaceful holidays in a breathtaking landscape.
In front of the village lies a beautiful, long, and wide beach with crystal clear turquoise deep water, which is also considered the longest beach in southwest Crete.
Sougia: A Modern Hideaway and an Ancient Sea-Port
Sougia is a small seaside village located on the southern coast of western Crete, approximately 65 km south from the city of Chania. Even for locals sometimes a day at the beach is anything but. You know the drill: too many people, too many umbrellas and loungers, too much noise, not enough tranquility to enjoy the majesty of blue skies and crystal clear water of the Libyan sea.
The good news is that there are still undiscovered, yet of exceptionally beautiful beaches in Crete-wonderful hideaways where tourism hasn’t yet eclipsed the Cretan culture and authenticity. Indeed, Sougia is one of these places. There is little to do other than relax or discover the local trails, including the magnificent scenery of the nearby gorges.
Sougia is accessible from Chania by car in approximately 2 hours or by ferry boats from Palaiochora, Hora Sfakion, Agia Roumeli and Loutro. Sougia is located on the ruins of the ancient seaport of Syia which flourished during the Roman period.
