Chora Sfakion is a small village in a cove between the mountains where the terrain is wild and harsh with the Lefka Ori towering behind.
After the loss of the Battle of Crete in 1941, 12,000 Allied troops evacuated the island through Chora Sfakion, after walking from north Crete through the Imbros Gorge; a plaque on the waterfront commemorates this event.
There are a number of excursions from Hora Sfakion: to Frangokastello, Anopolis and Aradena. Besides daily boats to Loutro, Agia Roumeli, Sougia, and Paleochora, there is a boat once a week to Gavdos (See Transportation).
