About the neighbourhood
The Makry-Gialos area is ideally located in the south-east of Crete to enjoy the benefits of both a relaxing beach holiday, and as a base for exploring eastern Crete. It has the best beaches in south-east Crete, including two blue flag beaches, and enjoys the superior North African influenced climate. Road access is good, allowing day trips that range from Toplou Monastery in the far north-east, the palatial ruins of Minoan Kato Zakros on the east coast, the Venetian fort and subsequent leper colony of Spinalonga to the north-west, and the Lasithi plateau to the west. Even a day trip to Knossos is achievable. Closer to base, the area is rich with stunning mountain scenery, uncrowded beaches and coves, historical sites, and traditional Cretan culture. Explore the many traditional Creta...
Getting around
The easiest way to get around is by car There is also a very good bus service (air conditioned coaches) which connect with Ierapetra, Sitia, Aghios Nikolaos Cars, bikes and motorbikes can be hired locally Boats can be hired at the harbour
