East Crete

East Crete

Crete is the largest and most southerly of the Greek islands, located at the foot of the Aegean Sea, on the very edge of Europe. It is approximately 160 miles (257 km) east to west, and up to 40 miles (65 km) north to south. At 7 miles (12 km), the Ierapetra isthmus is the shortest distance between north and south coasts. The island has been 10 million years in the making, and inhabited for the last 8,000 years. A succession of civilisations have left their mark on the mountains, plateaux, gorges, and coast of an east Crete untroubled by mass tourism, providing a natural, historical, and cultural treasure-trove within easy reach of Makrigialos.

Makrigialos (Makry-Gialos)

Makrigialos (Makry-Gialos), south east Crete

Makrigialos (or to give it its official spelling: Makry-Gialos) sits in a sandy bay on the south east coast of Crete. It features two blue-flag accredited beaches with crystal clear waters which offer safe, shallow bathing against a mountainous backdrop. A wide choice of beach-front cafes and tavernas offer plenty of opportunities to experience the legendary Cretan hospitality, and the village's location makes Makrigialos the ideal base to combine a relaxing beach holiday with exploration of the natural, historical, and cultural treasures of east Crete.
