Idyllic Ierapetra holidays 2020

Ierapetra sits pretty on the gorgeous southern coast of Crete, and is famously the sunniest place on the whole island. Its endless sandy beaches and laid-back pace of life make it the ideal holiday destination, whether you're looking for a romantic break for two, a family escape to the sun, or a fun getaway with friends. The town, like many in Crete, features an old quarter, with enticing narrow streets, and a waterfront district where most of the shops and tavernas are located. The fabulous long beach offers crystal clear waters and plenty of amenities for all kinds of water sports. You can take boat trips from the port out to Chrissi Island, a nature reserve with a cedar forest and breathtaking beaches.

A quaint, unspoiled town on the southern coast of Crete, Ierapetra has gorgeous beaches, and lots of authentic Greek charm. Its historic quarter is full winding alleys, pavement cafes and historical sights, from an Ottoman mosque to a Venetian fortress. Ierapetra makes a great base for exploring some of Crete's most famous sights; see the Minoan ruins at Knossos, discover the beautiful beaches of Chrissi Island or go hiking and walking in the picturesque mountains. And after a long day's sightseeing, you can relax and enjoy all the nightlife Ierapetra has to offer. From traditional tavernas and fantastic restaurants to lively bars and late night discos, there's something to suit every budget and taste.



There are three beaches in Ierapetra itself, but there are countless other bays and coves along this beautiful stretch of coastline. You can try your hand at a choice of water sports, hit the beach bars or find your own private spot on a secluded stretch of sand. The three main Ierapetra beaches all boast excellent facilities, including sunbeds and parasols for rent, and a good choice of places to eat and drink. If you want to escape the crowds, head a few miles east to find Koutsounari beach, which is a long sandy beach with shallow waters that is popular with families. The spectacular beaches on Chrissi Island are among the best to be found anywhere on Crete.
