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.

Beautiful villa situated between the hills and sea

5 of 5
My husband and I hired the villa with our friends who have a toddler and we were impressed with the provision of necessaries for young children. The pool is gorgeous and very well maintained, as is the villa itself. We enjoyed the villa's three balconies and patio with table and chairs, the latter of which we made good use of for dinning alfresco. Rosemary was on hand to welcome us and assist us with an any issues we had. Although we went in low season we enjoyed temperatures of 22-36oC and brilliant sunshine. We hope to visit again soon!
