The Prefecture of Lassithi lies in the east of Crete, offering gorgeous beaches, and a huge, lush plateau, covered in archaeological treasures and beautiful places to walk. This quieter region of Crete is the perfect place to take a top class beach holiday, yet still be able to immerse yourself in the traditional way of life, and with a little peace. The larger resorts can be loud during the peak season, but many of our holiday rental villas in Lassithi are in remote areas.

Things to do on holiday in Lassithi, Crete, Greece

Lassithi has been awarded no less than 32 European Blue Flags for the cleanliness of its many beaches. This means that whether you go in search of a blissfully secluded cove beach or a large, sweeping beach adorned with beach bars and endless facilities, you are almost certain to find a clean, safe beach. The larger, more tourist focused beaches are almost certain to offer water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and diving opportunities, as well as the change to go deep sea fishing off the shores of the island. There are also a variety of scuba diving centres scattered across this side of Crete.

The inland regions of Lassithi are quite remarkable. Towering sandstone cliffs are scoured with deep valleys and deep, blue lakes, making it the ideal location for hang gliding, hiking, climbing, caving, mountain biking, fishing and walking.

After a long day of sport or relaxing on the beaches, there is no better way to finish the day than enjoying the nightlife of the regions capital, Agios Nikolaos. There are some excellent little bars and a number of great clubs, but you can also find a fantastic night out in the beach resorts of Elounda, Makrygialos and Sitia.

Like in much of Crete, the history of Lassithi lasts back into the pre-historic times, meaning that there are a huge wealth of historical monuments and archaeological treasures to investigate from your self catering Lassithi holiday rental, including Ottoman mosques, Venetian castles and the Roman mosaics at Zakros.
