The Crete region
A land of mountains, plateaux, gorges, and coast, south east Crete enjoys better than average weather, thanks to its North African influenced climate and mountainous hinterland that often takes the edge off the sometimes fierce northerly 'meltemi' winds.
The municipality of Makrys-Gialos, and the village resort of Makrigialos, are ideally positioned, with the best beaches in south east Crete, and a central location from which to explore the natural, historical, and cultural treasures of east Crete.
Makrigialos is literally translated as "long shore" and the long beach and several other sandy coves that are never overcrowded, provide excellent conditions for swimmers of all experience and children due to the soft, gently shelving main beach and clean water.
The towns have many tavernas, bars, restaurants and shops, but remain unspoilt and are ideal places for those looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, but with the facilities offered by larger resorts.
From the port there is a boat which leaves each morning for the White island (Lefki or Koufonisia) returning in the afternoon.
Makrigialos has a very good supply of shops, tavernas, cafes, and water sport facilities, disco bars, one bank, pharmacy, doctor, dentist, car rental, florist and car service stations.There is a street market (09-14.00) each Friday on the cross road to Agios Stefanos, near the harbour entrance.
