The Area

Near and far there are many places of interest to visit and explore. Famous archeological sites, historical churches, unique beaches,  gorges and caves, plus a wide range of activities for everyone.

Sunbathing or swimming in the pool, relaxing on the terrace, spending the day on the small private-like beach below enjoying nature’s gifts in a relaxing, serene, friendly atmosphere is a day in paradise! Explore the surroundings and discover amazing beaches,  unique scenery,  the smell of herbs in the mountains. Hike through olive groves and canyons, villages and towns and experience real traditional Crete.

Get insider tips of what to see and do.

In Ierapetra,  shopping  or just walking in the old town are exceptional ways to pass the day. In the evening lights flicker from the fortress along the promenade, invitingly welcoming all visitors to explore  the busy nightlife.

Plan a fishing trip or boat cruise, go horse-riding or go-carting, rent a car and explore or try a donkey trek or jeep safari. Watersports, scuba diving or just snorkeling in the crystal clear blue water is magnificent, and all are in close proximity.
