These are 2 seaside resorts on either side of the Akrotiri Mouros that provide safe anchorage depending on the wind. Loutro is 5km west of Hora Sfakion and 35km from Paleohora.
The peninsula has the remains of a Turkish castle on it. Loutro has only minimal services. Water and supplies can be purchased at a mini-market. There is a telephone also that you can make international calls on and a mail box. There are no authorities, fuel, repairs, or medical services. There are hotels and tavernas and a ferryboat to Hora Sfakion.
Loutro (east side of the peninsula) provides safe anchorage from N, W, and SW winds. The other side (west) provides safe anchorage from NE and E winds. The small island in front has a flashing light.
