One of the most beautiful beaches in South Crete, Glyka Nera, is located just 4 Km from Hora Sfakion and 75 Km from the center of Chania town. It is known for its beauty and, in fact, the London Times ranked it among the most beautiful beaches in Europe in 2003.
Crystal clear, green water, white pebbles and vertical rocks make up the unique picture. Its name comes from the sweet water springs located next to it as well as in the sea. Although isolated, Glyka Nera has a canteen selling the bare essentials and rents out loungers.
