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.

A great balance of all the things you need to have a memorable holiday

5 of 5
The flat is nicely located close to Sitia and to the beach, has views of mountains, is extremely clean and decorated with good taste, but the best feature is the warmth and passion that its owner welcomes you with , the tips he shares will make your holiday and you'll want to discard anything you had planned before! The swimming pool is large and clean and a great meeting point to enjoy the frappes coffees that Nectarios so lovingly prepares for his guests in the morning. We recommend the Oceanias flats both to couples and families, as everyone seemed to get along in harmony. We wish to come again! all the best, Natalia, Ben and Chelsey

Haus zum Wohlfühlen

5 of 5
Wir haben im April / Mai vier Wochen im Haus von Mania und Dimitris verbracht und können es sehr empfehlen. Sehr guter Standort für einen abwechslungsreichen Urlaub; ruhig und schön gelegenes Haus, geschmackvoll und komfortabel eingerichtet und auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt gut geeignet, alles sauber (Putzfrau kommt zweimal pro Woche) und gepflegt. Die unmittelbare Umgebung ist sehr schön gestaltet: Verschiedene Terrassen und Sitzplätze, Feigenbäume, Olivenbäume, Weinreben und Blumen. In der Aussenküche kann gekocht und gegrillt werden. Die Eigentümer sind äusserst gastfreundlich und herzlich; bei unserer Ankunft stand alles für ein erstes einfaches Abendessen und fürs Frühstück bereit, inklusive selbst gemachter Marmeladen und Kuchen. Mania und Dimitris wohnen ebenfalls auf dem Grundstück; sie waren bei Bedarf jederzeit ansprechbar und haben uns mit guten Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurants in der näheren und weiteren Umgebung versorgt. Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und würden dieses Haus jederzeit wieder mieten.
