Things to do in Sitia, Greece

The beach at Sitia is a wonderful place to spend the day. The soft, golden sands of Sitia beach are amazingly soft beneath your feet and the bathing is safe, but for better places from which to swim, try taking a local bus north, and you will very soon start to see beaches that could take your breath away. The main beach is within walking distance of any self catering Sitia accommodation, and due to is great length, there are rarely crowds.

The great range of historical monuments in the Sitia region, which date from throughout the ages, are explained and explored wonderfully well in the Archaeological Museum of Sitia, which is a fantastic place to start your historical explorations of the region. The museum is home to many extraordinary artefacts from across eastern Crete, but will so many places to explore, you can’t restrict your historical tour to the museum alone. The Roman fish tanks, Hellenic docks on the Tripitos Peninsula and ancient sacrificial sites of Sitia are certainly worth exploration.

Sitia really comes to life in the evenings, especially around the old port. There is a fantastic atmosphere during the evenings, especially as the locals love to dress up in the evenings before heading down to the beach bars that surround the port. Although tourism does thrive in Sitia, Crete, the majority of restaurants, bars and shops are aimed at the locals, perfect for those wishing to truly explore local lifestyles and cultures. The restaurants of Sitia are awash with local delicacies, especially olives, oils and wines.

The region’s capital, Agios Nikalaos is a wonderful place to visit from a holiday rental apartment in Sitia, Greece. The nightlife is excellent, and for anyone wishing to have a good night or a full day of shopping, the short journey to Agios Nikolaos is well worth it.

Weather in Sitia, Crete

Temperatures regularly reach into the low 30’s (?C) during the summer months, but thankfully for those of us who prefer temperatures hot but not scorching, summer conditions rarely soar much further. The evenings remain wonderfully balmy, perfect for long evening strolls along the beach or having a meal and glass of local wine out on the balcony of your self catering Sitia apartment, watching the sun disappear over the watery horizon.

Stunning villa and outstanding service and attention to detail

5 of 5
I can thoroughly recommend this villa. It's absolutely beautiful and extremely well equipped. A great deal of thought has been put into providing everything you may need and more. We were given a lovely welcome and the owners had left us a completely packed fridge on arrival including wine. It was very thoughtful. Anna even bought over a delicious cheese pie which we all loved. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped us with car hire at short notice and additional sunbeds. We felt looked after and they insisted if you need anything just ask. The villa is in a very secluded spot. You do really need a car. The beach and setting for the villa are stunning. There are two small tavernas near by. The beach one had live music and dancing and when we visited the one on the road we were made very welcome. It was family run and the owner joined us for raki and told us all about the area. That was lovely. The pool area of the villa is amazing and we had many lovely evenings watching the spectacular sunsets and barbecuing in the outside kitchen. We were a family group of eight. There is a lovely games room in the basement with a pool table,TV and exercise machines. The villa was cleaned literally from top to bottom every three days including changing all the bed linen and towels. Every morning the pool area is swept and tidied before you get up. Definitely the most beautiful villa we have stayed in and the best customer service we have experienced. A big thank you to Anna and Stella.
