The Lassithi Prefecture region

Crete is with it’s length of 260 km and width of 16 to 60 kilometres the biggest island of Greece. Because it is located in the South, the whole year it’s got an attractive climate. The island is very many-sided. The nature is often craggy, green and mountaineous, but especillay varied. Crete is a sum of dreamery villages, quiet fishingvillages, all sort of beaches, monasteries and castles, excavations and attractives gorges. The inhabitants of this island are firstly Cretans, proud on their island and often at their traditions. Striking is the hospitality, one of the traditions, which is very important. A lot of people think about Crete of mass tourism such as in Chersonissos and Malia, you will notice that these crowdiness isn’t in Mirtos. You can enjoy the space and silence.


Although it's off the beaten tourist track, the little coastal hamlet of Mirtos does have one claim to fame- it's the most southerly settlement in the whole of greece. Reached by a turning off the south coast road, 16 kilometer west of Ierapetra, the village's long beach looks over the beautiful Libyan Sea. Popular by the Greeks themselves as a beachside retreat away from the crowds, Mirtos has a sleepy feel for most of the summer, and make an excellent base for exploring the south-east corner of Crete by rented car. Walkers will enjoy exploring the hill country around the fertile Mirtos river valley, one of the most beautiful on Crete. There is a small Minoan site nearby as well as an Bronze Age settlement. The small boulevard offers you a number of fine tavernas. Relaxing into the slow pace of Cretan village life with a good book, civilised company, is what holidays to Crete are all about.

Many facilities in Mirtos

It is so nice to take a stroll through the village. The music you hear is Greek or Cretan almost everywhere. You will not find hardrock or dance. Only this lovely and unpretentious atmosphere. You will also find that Mirtos has a lot to offer, in spite of the fact that it is only a village. To name its most important facilities:

- a beautiful beach with beds and a small but well equipped water sports centre, during the season

- a esplanade with plenty good restaurants, kafenions and outside cafes

- three supermarkets, two butchers, a small greengrocer offering herbs and raki, a few gift shops, a fashion shop, a jeweler and a shop selling fashionable trinkets

- two kiosks selling cigarettes, phone cards and post cards

- in the small streets several restaurants, kafenions and some bars

- a few tourist agencies rent cars and bikes and provide lots of ideas for trips

As for distances: all these facilities are quite close together.
