This is a small village right on the coast with a few small tavernas, and quite a few greenhouses as agriculture is predominant here - although not a pretty village in itself, it is flat and right by the sea and there is stunning scenery round about and some lovely beaches. It is about 15 minutes drive East after MakriGialos and therefore quite remote from the Main airport but once flights come into the new Sitia airport it will be less than one hour away.
It is quite a lively villages with fabulous sand beaches around located as it is at the fringe of South - East Crete. 10km from Makrigialos and 40km from Sitia. Restaurants, mini markets and other facilities are available. Bus route.
Most of the local people live all the year round there and there is a primary school.On the way to the village of Goudouras you see the beautiful Monastery of Kapsa and a gorge. The monastery of Kapsa is built on the steep rock overlooking the Mediterranean sea right next to it the Pervolakia Gorge! Fantastic mountain and sea views .
