Makry Gialos Crete

Makrigialos or Makry-Gialos in South East Crete.

Is 35 km far from Sitia and 29 from Ierapetra. The name Makrigialos (Makry-Gialos), which means "long beach", reveals its main advantage, as it constitutes a big bay with a long sandy beach with crystal clear, shallow waters that is perfect for children and non-swimmers, and further out for more experienced swimmers.
Makrigialos is a popular destination in Crete, for tourists of all kinds because it gives the opportunity to choose between two large but different in character beaches – one sandy and with shallow waters and one with small stones and deep waters. The large sweep of sandy beach offers a selection of some well conceived and decorated restaurants, cafes and bars, feeling casually-stylish in the evenings (mostly casual!) and also provides a local and not excessively tourist-trodden atmosphere.
The good thing about the place is that it covers the needs of both, families or couples that want to avoid manicured resorts, and looking for peaceful and unhurried holidays and young people who seek clubbing till dawn, cafes, sea sports and other activities.

Guest Reviews


Very clean and well presented, we even got a weloming bottle of raki! I would have no hesitation in booking this apartment again.


The apartments were extremely spacious, fully equipped and super clean. We loved the fact that it was convenient to get to the beach - only 100m on foot - and that Mr Manolis & Mrs Maria were soooo friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to those who seek relaxing vacations in a quiet and beautiful place.


Stayed there for 9 nights. Two storey apartments were nice and spacious. Apartments are well kept. Can recommend to evryone planning to stay in Makrigialos and not wishing to stay directly next to beach (It's about 100 metres to beach.) Good value for price.
