About Makrigialos

The village is named after the long stretch of sandy beach with shallow waters which offers safe swimming for children. Makrigialos has a good choice of tavernas, cafes and bars and the little harbour with its traditional fishing boats is a favourite meeting point for locals and visitors. Enjoy fresh fish and local specialities looking out over the blue sea, stroll along the small promenade or have a coffee in one of the Cretan kafenions. The authentic little villages in the hills behind Makrigialos are worth a visit and there are regular bus connections to the larger towns like Ierapetra and Sitia.
