Loútro is a small village in the southern Crete and it's pretty unique in that:
- There's no road to and into Loútro: some sites state that there's just one car in the entire village. I'll verify this as soon as I'll be there.
- The only mean to reach the village is by boat or on foot.

In the map it's pretty clear how isolated Loútro is. If you follow the shore to the East, you'll find another isolated village, Sfakia, and the two are connected by a footpath: you should see it if you magnify the image. It really goes parallel to the shore line. This path gives also access to some beautiful beaches such as Glyka nera (Sweet water), one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete.
Google Maps is a just cool application! Checking places like this is funny and, in the meantime, it gives me some kind of confidence about the itinerary I'm building.
I'll keep on documenting and as soon as I'll be back, I'll document my trip!
