Crete is the largest of the Greek islands. It is endowed with a natural beauty that captivates every visitor. From the hills in the east to the imposing cliffs of Chania in the west, every step is a new discovery.
Three imposing mountain ranges divide the island with its multitude of caves, which have even been used as shelters or jobs since prehistoric times. The landscape surprises everyone again and again with its impressive gorges.
Offering the most hours of sunshine and the lowest rainfall in all of Greece annually, Ierapetra truly is a year-round destination that must be explored by car, foot or bike! The southernmost town of Europe, its name comes from the words “ieros” (i.e. holly) and “petra” (i.e. stone). Originally named Kyrva, it played a significant role in ancient times and the influences of the Venetian and Ottoman siege left their mark in the area.
This charming spot of rich Cretan history will be the foothold to countless adventures based on the desires. From the impressive Sarakina gorge to the endless green of Selakano forest and the turquoise waters of islet Chrissi, there’s a little something for everyone. Don’t forget to enjoy the countless, stunningly crystal-clear Blue Flag-awarded beaches such as Agia Fotia, Koutsounari and Ferma.
