There are no tired and unpleasant waiters who don't want to speak to you. So make the right choice and discover Sougia. A small picturesque fishing village in south west Crete, not yet spoilt by mass tourism. Discover the beautiful beaches (the most are nudist beach) and enjoy the sun, sea and peaceful tranquility.
Enjoy walking in the scenic, unspoilt mountain countryside with its valleys and gorges.
The people are friendly and hospitable and will always be there for you
Sougia is built at the exit of the Agia Eirini gorge, west of the Agierinioti streambed, and stands out for its big, beautiful beach that never fills up with people and its relaxed casual atmosphere.
Sougia became known from the young in age or soul, who spent their vacation in their tents under the trees of the beach.
Especially 20 years ago the situation was completely hippie in Sougia, but today it has begun to change. The scenes still appear every summer and the beach in her eastern side continues to attract nudists, but less than before.
