At 24 km from Ierapetra,
we find picturesque and coastal Makrigialos, at the wonderful bay of Kala Nera. The village has evolved into a tourist resort, thanks to its white big sandy beach and the blue sea. Next to the contemporary church of the village, the excavations have discovered a Minoan Mansion. In the same area, a Roman Mansion was also excavated.
Above all, Makrigialos is a very quiet place and it is appropriate for those who want to have a relaxing vacation . Moreover, there are a lot of traditional taverns ,bars ,shops and restaurants that do not destroy the unspoilt atmosphere. They are able to offer the requisite facilities but also the quiet, relaxing holiday you desire.
