The Lassithi Prefecture region

Crete – the southernmost island in Europe has everything you need for a relaxing family holiday!

Discover its long sandy beaches and sweeping beautiful bays with crystal clear waters. Relax and enjoy Cretan hospitality in its wonderful variety of bars, cafes and restaurants.



A traditional Cretan village on the coast of the south-eastern Crete. The village is built across the beach, and there are many wonderful and quiet beaches around it. The main beach is full of people in summer time and there are watersports, bars, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets & souvenir shops.

The nature around is beautiful with the southern Cretan Sea, the mountainsite, and the natural forest on the north. There are daily boat trips from Makrygialos to a small island called Koufonisi, that gives you the opportunity to escape in the real Cretan nature. You can also have the possibility to visit three traditional Cretan villages, and two archeological places in the village (the Minoan and the Greek Roman villa).

Beaches: There are five separate beaches in the immediate Makri Gialos area.The main beach, which is blue flag accredited and which stretches eastwards from the harbour for half a mile, provides golden sand and safe shallow bathing. There is on offer a range of water sports facilities in the summer season.

Night-life: Makri Gialos is one of the quieter, less developed destinations in Crete, more suited to couples and families. The walk down from the hotel complex at the eastern end of town is dotted with bars, restaurants, tavernas, and the one nightclub in town, and most establishments also front onto the beach. Soon after passing the Gecko Bar you reach the harbour area, a pleasant place to stroll around, with its own patch of sandy beach and collection of waterfront bars, tavernas and restaurants standing side by side.

Culture: Makri Gialos itself is a small town of around 1000 inhabitants who originate mostly from the surrounding villages. It wasn't all that long ago that the town was just a scattering of store houses and fishermen's cottages, and even today the local economy is based as much, if not more, on agriculture as it is on tourism. The area has been inhabited for centuries and is home to Minoan and Roman ruins, the former dating as far back as 1400 B.C. More 'recent' evidence of habitation can be found at the Kapsa Monastery, perched on the hill side four miles east of town, and believed to have been founded in the 15th century. Contemporary culture is represented by timeless traditional Cretan villages, such as Pefki and Agios Stefanos, which dot the mountain sides.

Walking: With coastline to the south and mountains to the north, there are plenty of opportunities to explore. Coastal walks over sand, shingle and rock are possible east and west from Makri Gialos itself. About 11 miles from Makri Gialos, and at 4500 feet the highest peak in the area, Afendis Stavromenos affords stunning views of eastern Crete and can only be reached on foot or by 4x4. For the only slightly less adventurous, gorge walks can be found at Pefki and Pervolakia, both around four miles from Makri Gialos.

Scenic Drives: Every road out of town is a scenic drive, either along the coast or up into the mountains. Our site manager can give you detailed route schedules, including where to go, where to stop for the best views, and where to visit.
