The Heraklion Prefecture region

Crete is the largest island in Greece and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea. Crete is devided in four prefectures, Heraklion, Lasithi, Rethymno and Chania. Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (2700- 1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest civilization in Europe.

The largest and most populated region on the island of Crete is Heraklion. Nestling picturesquely among two imposing mountain ranges – Ídi (Mt Psiloritis) to the west and Dikti (Lasithiótika mountains) to the east– Iráklion boasts exceptional archaeological treasures, significant coastal settlements, a series of picturesque villages, vast valleys with olive groves and vineyards as well as the best organised tourist infrastructure in Crete. A unique combination of urban scenery and natural wealth makes the region of Iráklion an appealing all-year-round destination.

The sea on the north of the island is called sea of Crete and is the southern end of the Aegean sea,

the south sea of the island Crete is called Libyan sea.

During summer, which beings in May and lasts till September in Crete, the average maximum temperature of the island stands at the high 20s. Although the nighttime temperature is also high but because of low levels of humidity it is nicely bearable. However, in the peak month temperature may often fluctuate and stays at mid 30s. The season sees more than twelve hours of sunshine each day, especially in the months of June, July, August.


Kastri is located in the sheltered bay of Keratokampos southern side of Irakleion county, near the village of Viannos. In recent years it is being developed and the beaches are a magnet for visitors. Indeed, many people love this quiet and hospitable place, and come several times a year to take their holiday in Kastri.
