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.

Very nice holiday home with a large and clean pool

5 of 5
Our stay in this holiday villa was really great and we enjoyed it very much. The house is located close to nice restaurants and different shops in Makrigialos. We also loved to have our breakfast at the house terrace each morning and our kids enjoyed the nice and clean pool. Rosemary provided us with all needed and helpful information about the house and the infrastructure. It was very convenient to have a private parking lot nearby. Everything went very well and we were completely satisfied.

Very Nice House

5 of 5
Stunning view over the ocean, very quiet location. The house is accessible via a private drive way off the main road. Apart from the microwave, everything you could need (including a freezer) was available. Internet access could be better. We had to go outside to have a good internet connection. We arrived very late/early (2am) and received the keys without a problem. People were very friendly and got us breakfast for the first morning. Irina responds quickly to email requests.
