Geocache Description:

The "Endeavor" is a Cache near the town of Chora Sfakion. This cache can be accessed by two ways. One is the easy way and that is to swim 30-40 meters out towards the cave and then up. The other is well if you know me then you guessed it right! "The Hard way"

EN-DEAV-OR: a strenuous effort; attempt; to exert oneself to do or effect something; make an effort; strive; to finish a goal to the end.

The cache is located above the cliffs edge once you are near the upper cave it is easy to get to the cache. Its getting there which is not all that easy, take your time and you will make it. We did, made it in and out without swimming. Not recommended for kids if not swimming.

Iligas is an amazing turquoise-water sandy beach, 1km west of Chora Sfakion and 74km south of Chania. Iligas is located at the end of Kavi Gorge, that starts from Anopolis. There are two beaches, separated with a big cavy rock.

The main one is bigger and can be accessed by walking a short distance from the main road of Sfakia-Anopolis. The second one that is east of the former can be accessed only by boat or by swimming from the main beach.

There is one small taverna with rooms to let near Iligas beach, but there are more amenities in the wonderful village of Chora Sfakion.

Iligas is one of many wonderful beaches in south Crete. There are many caves, in which you can keep yourself in the shadow. It's quite easy to access and is close to Sfakia, so you can visit that by walking from Sfakia (taking 10-15 min).
