Analipsi is a charming little resort with gorgeous beaches on the north coast of Crete, just 13 miles east of Heraklion and close to Hersonissos, the island’s biggest resort. Delightfully old-fashioned, Analipsi’s narrow streets and lively main square are scattered with a great choice of shops, cafés and taverns. The main beach is long and sandy, overlooked by a miniature white chapel, and there’s a picturesque harbour and some delightful little coves. It’s only a 30-minute drive to the beautiful Lassithi Plateau, high in the hills, where you’ll find timeless villages, windmills and the Dikteon Cave, which legend says is the birthplace of Zeus. If you’re more in the mood for sightseeing or some shopping, head to the vibrant city of Heraklion.

Beaches

Beaches

The main beach of Analipsi is a lovely long expanse of golden sand, with plenty of amenities, including sun loungers and parasols for rent plus a choice of water sports. You could rent out a sea kayak, or have a go at wind-surfing or parasailing, or perhaps head out on an excursion to one of the diving sites along this stretch of coast. The main beach is divided from the town’s second beach by a small pier, topped with a picturesque white chapel. This beach is smaller and narrower and stretches along to the little harbour. It doesn’t have as many amenities and is usually a little less busy in the height of summer.
