Makrigialos is a small charming costal village just along the coast from Ierapetra, situated in the south east of Crete.  Once a well-kept secret - a tiny quiet village with a lovely uncrowded beach and a little harbour; the beach and the harbour are still there, but the village has grown into a lively little resort in its own right, great for people who want a village resort with a relaxed feel but with plenty of tavernas and enough nightlife.

 

 

lying Some way from any major or developed tourist towns, Makrigialos is situated along a coastline filled with secluded bays and quieter beaches, and an impressive mountain backdrop with gorges that are easily accessible and every bit as rewarding as the Samaria Gorge.

 

One of the many attractions of a Makrigialos holiday is the beautiful main beach with its blue sea shallow waters and great swimming; it has merged with the neighbouring village of Analipsi to form a long narrow stretch of sand and shingle. There is also another beach to the West of Makrigialos which is wider and less busy. There are water-sports on the beach and a good selection of beachside tavernas, as well as bars and restaurants by the harbour.

 

For the more adventurous there are Regular buses that run along the coast to places like Ierapetra its fascinating neighbour whose Old Town has narrow lanes, and an interesting mix of architecture and monuments, testament to the town’s strategic importance to Romans, Turks and Venetians who have all occupied this the southernmost point of Europe.

In a nutshell Makrgialos is a laid back resort despite its growing popularity, an attractive place to relax, sunbathe, and eat well.
