Ierapetra in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

Ierapetra is the most southerly town in Europe and is known for its particularly mild climate. The town of Ierapetra has been in existence since ancient times, when it had important trade links with North Africa. Roman remains, a Venetian fort, a Turkish mosque and minaret still exist.

Ierapetra or CIerapetra

The journey from Heraklion takes about one and a half hours. In the centre of the town there is a long promenade with lots of shops, tavernas and hotels, and the little harbour with its Venetian fort. Many of the local inhabitants of the area around Ierapetra work in agriculture, and so is common to see the long green houses for growing vegetables, while inland there are lovely pine fortests and olive groves. The kilometre long sand and shingle beach with numerous attractive little coves, has two beaches which have been awarded the Blue European Flag.

Near to Ierapetra, there are many little villages with rooms or apartments for rent as well as lots of hotels. The region of Ierapetra lends itself particularly for walking, or for boat trips to the nearby bays, to the golden Island of ‘Crisi” or Koufonisi with its unusual crushed-shell beaches. There are many interesting outings to be made, for example a visit to Agios Nikolaos, to the vast Lassithi Plain with its windmills, to the Butterfly Gorge or to the beautiful palm strewn beach at Vai.

Tip of the day

The village of Georgioupolis with it’s particulary beautiful setting between sea and mountain, is situated between the towns of Rethymno, a 30 minute journey by car and Chania which is a 45 minute drive away. This charming village with its long stretch of sandy beach and river running into the sea, was until recent times a sleepy little fishing village in an out of the way place.Over the past 20 years it has slowly grown into a very popular little holiday resort, with a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, boutiques and other tourist amenities. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village is ideal for those keen on walking, while the splendid sandy shore and relaxed sea side atmosphere make it ideal for beach lovers.
There is and excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far afield, for example to Heraklion (90 min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Georgioupolis is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania and Rethymno.
