Lasithi, the easternmost region of the Greek island of Crete, is a sun-soaked paradise of extraordinary diversity. Crumbling mountains, arid plains and lush coastal palm forests all make their home here. And, as one might expect in Greece, Lasithi boasts beautiful beaches in abundance, along with some stunning beachside hotels and resorts. From the bustling town of Agios Nikolaos to the breezy olive groves of Neapoli, Lasithi offers everything from peace and quiet, ancient Minoan ruins, delectable Greek cuisine and a thriving nightlife.
Agios Nikolaos — The largest town in Lasithi, Agios Nikolaos is home to several pretty beaches, a number of local fairs and the striking Lake Voulismeni, where Athena was once said to have bathed, and which legend has it, is bottomless. Pick up a souvenir here, before quenching your thirst as you experience the town’s pulsing local nightlife, thenyou’re your head down in a top hotel.
Lerapetra — Situated on the south coast of Lasithi, the wind-protected town of Ierapetra is a real hotspot for sun lovers. The town’s proximity to Chrysi, a protected island and area of intense natural beauty, also makes it a popular place to book a hotel. Chrysi is home to a number of Minoan ruins from the grand days of Ancient Greece.
Sitia — Lush forest may not be the first thing you associate with arid Greece, but a visit to Sitia will soon bust this myth. Home to Europe’s largest natural palm forest, the deep green coastal region of Sitia is also close to the awesome crashing waters of the Richtis Gorge waterfall, which has to be seen to be believed.
Neapoli — For an authentic flavour of Crete, Neapoli won’t disappoint. Surrounded by mountainous olive groves, cobbled alleyways and narrow streets, you’ll come away from here with a real sense of Greek life. Every August, the town hosts a traditional religious festival, complete with dancers, musicians and local market stalls, so you know you’ll want to book a hotel in Neapoli for then.
While Crete definitely isn’t lacking in beautiful landscapes to catch the eye, one shouldn’t overlook some of the smaller islands nearby, each of which offers something unique. With a private boat tour from Agios Nikolaos you’ll be able to see some of the Mediterranean’s hidden gems. You can customise your tour to ensure you see the best tourist destinations or the quietest spots – whichever you prefer. With almost no end of spectacular ruins in Lasithi, be sure to keep your camera on you at all times!
While many visit Lasithi to experience its beautiful beaches and unending days of sunshine, lying on the sand with a book is far from the only activity to keep you busy. If you’re feeling more active, find a windsurfing or parasailing experience on the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean. Those who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground will find some excellent museums to explore, such as the Archaeological Museums of Sitia and Agios Nikolaos. Meanwhile, hikers should head to the beautiful caves of the Lasithi Plateau. One of these is said to be the birthplace of the king of the gods himself, almighty Zeus!
