The compass leads us to the easternmost prefecture of Crete, the region of Lassithi, with the endless valleys with olive trees, the impressive gorges, the dense mountain ranges, but also the dozens of fantastic beaches that extend along the entire eastern coastline, from the southernmost to the southern part.
At the southeastern tip of the prefecture, "embraced" by a natural cove, the traditional seaside settlement of Makrys Gialos, with its sandy beach and beautiful waters, is a popular destination that promises to give you unique moments of rest.
From here, you will enjoy dozens of excursions in nature and the mountains, for hiking and exploring caves, monasteries, and gorges, floating explorations in nearby islands, refreshing walks along the beautiful coastline, and excellent Cretan dishes & raki in the picturesque traditional taverns!
The superb weather conditions, the daily sunshine, the leeward sides, the shallow and safe waters, as well as the genuine feeling of hospitality offered by its inhabitants, make it a top-rated tourist resort, where the past blends harmoniously with modern life.
