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.

A really stunning villa in a fantastic location; ideal for a perfect get away from it all!

5 of 5
Just back from a fantastic week in this villa in Monastiraki. The location of the villa is perfect for those wanting to escape from it all, but is only a short drive from the main National road and has two delightful tavernas within a few minutes walk. The villa was clean and very well equipped and Mark was very helpful with any questions we had about the area etc. All in all a super holiday thanks Mark!

A lovely relaxing holiday (once you had made the awful journey on the approaching road).

4 of 5
The villa was absolutely superb with all the necessary items needed for a comfortable stay. It was very clean on arrival, the pool attendant came most days to change the filter, and the housekeeping attended at the end of our first week. We only had a couple of problems, for example the kettle gave up on us after the first day but it was quickly replaced albeit with a model that did not switch off automatically. The second problem was the cooking hob. This did not seem to work very well if the "locked key" had been activated because the hob had not been in use for about a day. This problem was reported to the management company. It would be more comfortable if a window/door blind was fitted in the kitchen, because when cooking the evening meal the sun level was such that it glared into the room making "blind spots" when moving from the hob to a working surface. This was at approximately 6pm untl 7pm. Never the less the Villa Danae is an excellent venue for a holiday. We have been taking villa holidays for over twenty years and this property numbers very highly in "best villa". Thank you.
