Spilia (near Chania) to Loutro

Hi!

We are in Crete by the month end !! Yayyyy!

We are staying in Spilia for 4 days, then onto Loutro for two days and finally in Heraklion for 2 days. We have rented a car for the entire period. I know we will have to park the car in Hora Skafion when we go to Loutro. However, I'm wondering if we should go to Loutro from Hora Skafion or Sougia? Or Paleohora??? Would we be able to park the car in either place? Which would be better? Would it be safe to leave our luggage in the car? Ideally I would love to walk to Loutro from Hora Skafion but cannot do so because of our luggage!

Thanks so much, in advance!

As you will be going to Heraklion when you leave Loutro I think I would leave my car in Hora Sfakia. I wouldn't leave my luggage in the car though as whilst Crete is generally safe you never know and car break in's have become more frequent in recent years.

Definitely Chora Sfakia. The ferry from there to Loutro only takes 20 minutes. The ferry from either of the other places takes a least 2 hours and can sometimes involve a lengthy wait at Agia Roumeli. Plus both of those places are much further away from Heraklion.
