If you are looking for the authentic family run Cretan taverna on a beach this is it. We offer exceptional seclusion, lots of our own produce including organic milk, yoghurt, cheese, honey, fish, fruit, vegetables and olive oil as well as a very friendly welcome. Right on Likkos beach in a sheltered, car-free bay we are a 10 minute boat ride around the headland from Loutro. Our taverna provides an excellent base from which to explore the beatiful coast line and beaches and the walking trails along coast, in the famous Cretan gorges nearby and into the mountains behind. The local area is a haven for wildlife including rare birds and the spectacular Cretan flowers. We share Likos Bay with just one other taverna and the rest is just fields of sheep and goats, olive groves and wild flowers going down to the sea. We have 16 rooms with a variety of doubles, singles, twins, triples and one which has a double and two single beds ideal for a family. All of the rooms face the sea, have balconies and en suite shower with hot solar heated water and a loo. So you sleep to the sound of the lapping waves. Eight ...

A major advantage of our hotel is that it is located at the middle, the ''heart'' of the municipality of Sfakia. This means, that you can easily walk to nearby beaches such as Loutro, Marmara, Sweet water beach and the most exotic Agios Pavlos beach. Additionally, if you are not in the mood to walk, you can use our taxi boat service for a visit to those beaches.
Pahnes is the second highest mountain of Crete with its peak standing at 2453 meters. Walking from sea level up to the top would take you about 8 hors of walk. But, we can arrange a taxi car transfer for you that will take you from Lykos to Limnia, and then from there you can walk for 2 hours until the top. Our taxi will be waiting for you in Limnia to drive you back to the hotel once you have returned.

You walk up to the village of Aradena, and from there, you enter the gorge which ends down in Marmara beach. Then, after a relaxing swim and an exploration of the caves you walk back to our hotel in Lykos beach. The whole tour takes approximately 5 hrs of walk. But, you can also use our taxi service which takes you up to the village of Aradena where the gorge begins, and then use our taxi boat service which takes you from Marmara beach where the gorge ends back to Lykos beach. Like this, you only have to walk down the gorge which is only 2 hours and 30 minutes.
