It is situated on the front tier at the Resort, giving it the advantage of being able to look out over the pool, as well as having an unrivalled view of the sea and mountains.

The Lassithi Prefecture region

Eastern Crete differs from the North-west end in that it remains largely uncommercialised and therefore some might say, unspoiled. It is the "natural Crete" where beautiful mountains meet crystal clear turquoise waters. You will find quaint villages, stunning beaches and authentic fine Cretan cuisine – most noted for the use of fresh local ingredients, often grown by the restaurant owners themselves.

If you tire from lazing by the pool with your book then jump in the car and within minutes you will be exploring the winding roads to stumble across dramatic views, secluded coves and discover Crete's natural environment that has a rich and diverse agricultural landscape with endless olive groves and vineyards.

The weather is invariably perfect, with year round sunshine and blue skies! There are many beaches close by, all of them with beautiful white sand and stunningly calm , clear waters, perfectly safe for children. Bring your snorkel and mask, there's lots to see! If you like watersports, there are plently of options from water-skiing to the flying fish - a huge ringo that takes off!

A little further afield you will find beautiful ports with open air restaurants and modern shops aplenty. Or you can visit any of scores of archaeological sites and learn about ancient Crete. If you like exploring on foot, why not do some gorge walking. There are more than 10 dramatic gorges to choose from not far from your Bayview base.


Bayview Resort is a modern, beautifully designed complex of apartments and bungalows set at the foot of the mountains, right next to the sea. It really is the perfect place to relax and unwind by the pool with a good book or to use as a base to explore Eastern Crete. The resort is immaculately maintained with onsite management team who can assist you should you need anything.

If you want a change from the pool, just a short stroll away is Bayview Beach, unspoiled, practically deserted and safe, with soft sand and crystal clear turquoise water.

The resort is situated just a few minutes drive from Makrygialos which is a typical, quaint Cretan seaside village with friendly locals. You will find everything you need in terms of supplies should you wish to cook in the apartment but if you prefer to go out there are a wide selection of excellent bars and restaurants that run along the seawall where you can drink and dine with the sea lapping at your feet.

As these restaurants are right on the foreshore they offer spectacular views across the Lybian sea, particularly at night when stars fill the sky and the moon casts a beam of light across the water.

With the many local beaches and restaurants, beautiful scenery of the Makrygialos area and the inviting pool and comfort of Bayview Resort itself, many visitors are tempted to go nowhere else as Bayview offers the perfect holiday to those looking for rest and relaxation.

The Bayview Resort is luxurious with several three storey blocks ( with various apartment sizes) surrounding a large central multiple pool area . There are also a few bungalows poolside . It is unfinished so you may have - as we had - some internal building work . Not too disturbing . Chris and Anja manage the resort . They are Dutch and are ever available , helpful and knowledgeable. We stayed in a 2 bed roomed 'penthouse' apartment which has a roof garden with sofa like seating , plenty sunbathing space and stunning views over mountains and sea . The penthouse was spacious for 2 , compact for 2 adults and two children . The village of Makrigiapolis ( there are various spellings) is about a kilometre away on a secondary unlit road. It has a good beach and a 'board' walk with restaurants and bars . In April it was quiet . I intend to separately write up for Trip Advisor some of the restaurants . In general they served good simple inexpensive food with welcoming staff . There are two in nearby villages - one with a 'Grandmas Kitchen' - that are so good that I shall not be divulging their names !You can have fun trying out several village tavernas until you find them or you may find other good ones instead ! There are large interesting towns with good shopping within 30 minutes eg Sitia There are local gorges for great short walks . There are totally deserted beaches within walking distance of Bayview through the fields . I feel that this place is a perfect marriage of a new luxury development and an unspoiled village . I never return to places as there is a lot of world still to see . I am returning to Bayview in June and probably October as well . Enough said!

"A perfect mix of sun, fun and relaxation."

We went wanting to recharge our batteries and spend time together without rushing around. My partner and I enjoy being outdoors and being active. We found the perfect mix of sunbathing, gorge walking, eating out and relaxing in the complex. The apartment has everything you could want and is very comfortable. The roof top terrace was a real attraction for us. We sunbathed there at times and enjoyed a romantic glass or 3 of wine while soaking up the sunset in the evening. The views are breathtaking. A car is a must to get out and explore and get to the better restaurants, but we did a lot of walking from the complex and found remote gorges where we rarely met another person. We will definitely return.
