The article I read described Loutro as a quaint fishing village, so imagine my surprise when I stepped off the ferry to find almost nothing but hotels and restaurants lining the shore of the small cove. I liked the absence of cars, but everything was so close together that it felt very claustrophobic to me. And the two small beaches were narrow strips of pebbles that were hard on my feet.
I'm sure that some people love this place, but I'm not one of them. In truth I found Chora Skafion much more appealing.
