Our region

Myrtos is one of the jewels of Crete, a picturesque seaside village in southeast Crete, near the town of Ierapetra (10 min. drive) in Lassithi Prefecture. It is the base of a municipal department, consisting of Myrtos and four other villages, and has a population of around 500 people.

The small village is built in a lush region full of banana trees near the banks of Kryos river. Myrtos boasts one of the best beaches in the area, with ash-grey sand and crystal-clear waters, where it is delightful to swim and enjoy the blue sea. One important advantage is that the area is not affected by the “meltemia” (northwesterly seasonal winds) and strong northerly winds soaring over many beaches at Ierapetra and on the south coast of Crete.
