From Heraklion | East & South Crete Kritsa and Myrtos beach

We start our trip with a visit to one of the oldest villages on Crete, which retains even today elements of the Venetian architecture, the village of Kritsa. Here, you will have about 1 hour free time to stroll around its narrow streets.

Then, we head towards to Myrtos Beach, 13km west of Ierapetra, at the output of a wide valley filled with greenhouses and citrus groves. You will have free time to enjoy swimming and sunbathing to the nice beaches of Myrtos, with the coarse gray sand that doesn’t stick on the body.

After 4 hours in Myrtos, the day we take the way back to the hotels.
