Holidays to Ierapetra
For an alternative to the classic Greek island beach resort holiday, Ierapetra in Crete offers a historic city base for a taste of ancient Greece. The centre of town filled with little stone houses and cosy tavernas oozes Greek charm, and there’s an old Venetian fortress down by the harbour. Meanwhile, you’re a short drive away from a generous pick of big sandy beaches as well as the heady vibes of the capital Heraklion aren’t far.
One of 3 beaches in Ierapetra, this one boasts generous facilities including loungers and tavernas.
Next to the fortress, there are plenty of cafes for refreshments and a variety of watersports such as diving.
Crete’s capital, Heraklion, is packed with historical sights, as well as shops, cafes and restaurants.
Set in a large square in town, this crumbling mosque sometimes plays host to various exhibitions.
For a change of scene, this traditional hilltop village a short drive from Ierapetra oozes whitewashed Greek charm.
Sail to Chrissi Island
With its white sand and turquoise water, this island 15km from Ierapetra looks like it’s in the Caribbean.
Catch of the day
Pick out your dinner at the seafront taverna, then watch as your choice is grilled in front of you.
There are so many cosy cafes in Iepetra, all offering a charming spot for a brew. You're spolit for choice.
Late nights in Malia
The party town of Malia on the opposite coast promises a massive choice of bars and clubs, all open until dawn.
This small cocktail bar by the seafront has a modern décor and a great harbour view. Really lovely.
