Makrigialos is situated on the south east coast of Crete. Makrigialos is only 30 minutes from the towns of Ierapetra (on the south coast) and Sitia (on the north coast).
Makrigialos has some of the best beaches in all of Crete. There are many secluded coves, all gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. A mountain ridge runs West to East across the island and it is this which gives Southern Crete it's own very special climate. The mountains shield this part of the island from any inclement weather. Additionally Makrigialos itself is surrounded by it's own mountain range. This geography means that the Makrigialos area has the best climate in all of Crete, and possibly the entire Mediterranean. The area is popular with tourists all through the winter. It is not difficult to understand why the area produces what is considered to be the best olive oil in the world.
Crete really is a place that allows you to do as little as much as you want. The island is quite simply beautiful, and it would be a shame to visit Crete and not see some of it. Driving is easy and car hire is very reasonable. We strongly recommend that you hire a car. For the price of pre-booked airport transfers for a family of four, you can probably hire a car for a week. If you wish to hire a car, we can recommend a company.
All manner of water sports are available within easy reach, including scuba diving, fishing, sailing, etc. Other nearby attractions include: The gorges of Pefki, Dasaki and Pevrolakia Water Park at Ierapetra, day boat trip to nearby Lefki island & Koufonisi, wine-tasting at the Kaspa monastery, traditional Cretan evenings in Pefki. Makrigialos hosts the prestigious Casa dei Mezzo music festival in June.
