Loutra beach is unorganised.
There is a hotel and few restaurants nearby.


It is worth noting that the small beach was a famous destination to nudists, however, today they no longer prefer the beach due the newly built port of Lentas.
Near the quiet beach you will find the wonderful church of Panagia, built inside a rock.

How to get to Loutra

Access from Heraklion is possible only by rented or private cars and motorbikes.
If you choose to drive from Heraklion, take the provincial road Herakliou-Phaistou to the south.
Drive past Agioi Deka, Vagonia, Vasiliki and Krotos villages and follow the dirt road to the south.
If you choose to drive from Lentas, there is an easy dirt road to the east, leading to Loutra beach.
