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

Amorgos is an island with white houses, crystal clear water and a peaceful atmosphere: it is no coincidence that Luc Besson chose to shoot the first part of  the film The BigBlue here. Once only visited by the occasional backpacker, Amorgos has become quite an "trendy" island since the film was released, and it is no surprise that you will find more French holidaymakers here than usual. It is one of the the easternmost islands of the Cyclades, located southeast of Naxos, Ios northeast of Ios and north of Anafi. The coastline is 112 kilometres. Amorgos is generally mountainous, rocky and rough, with very few residents and high hills and mountains, the highest are Mt Krikello (826 m) and Mt Saint Elias (648 m) . 
The people engaged in agriculture, fisheries and shipping. The few products of Amorgos are cereals, wine, oil, figs and tobacco all excellent especially the tobacco and beans are in demand. Also fine are the dairy products. In recent years, the beauties of Amorgos are attracting more and more Greeks and foreign tourists.
