Makrigialos (Crete)

Far from the bustling, developed tourist towns of Crete, Makriyalos is a tranquil resort with a number of secluded bays and quiet coves. The town is framed by a magnificent mountain range and gorgeous gorges and the picturesque harbour is where most of the atmospheric cafés and restaurants can be found. This is a great place to sample some traditional Greek cuisine and enjoy the views of the sun setting over the Aegean Sea.

Every Friday there is a bustling street market near the coast. Here you can pick up some delicious regionally grown produce and meet the local characters. One of the best ways to get to know Makriyalos is to take a walking tour of the stunning natural and historic scenery. The 15th Century Kapsa Monastery is located on the rugged pine covered foothills of the Moni Kapsa Mountain and is a firm favourite with history buffs and sightseers. If you can face the hike up the steep slopes, the 1.5 km tall peak of Afendis Stavromenos provides unbeatable panoramic views of Crete for miles around.
