This is a quiet seaside village with a pharmacy, minimarkets a couple of tavernas and shops – it is about ¾ hour drive from Sitia and one and 1.3/4 hours drive from Heraklion airport. It is close to Makrigialos and all its amenities but is a quieter place. Only minutes to the amenities of a bustling seaside resort and near to lovely traditional mountain villages with the unique atmosphere. This little village with all amenities and placed right by the sea has a really laid back atmosphere and yet a good bus route between Ierapetra and Sitia. A lot of the cultivation is vegetables.
