Souda is located just 6 km from Chania and south of the Akrotiri peninsula. Although the north coast within the bay is prohibited to be approached by ships and boats due to the fact that it is a military territory, the southwestern part of the bay is a very busy an beautiful port.
For those interested in the history of WWII, in the Souda bay there is the War cemetery. It is a very well preserved cemetery, built in respect to those who sacrificed themselves during the war. The cemetery has a view of the infinite Souda Bay and revokes memories from the past.
