Sailing Holidays in
Ierapetra

Let explore the Sailing Holidays area... Add Ierapetra to favorites

Ierapetra is the most populous town in the regional unit of Lasithi, and the fourth town of Crete. It is nicknamed "bride of the Libyan Sea" because of its position as the only town on the south coast of Crete. The city’s temperature will hardly ever go below 12°C.

Ierapetra is well developed to meet the needs and preference of all. Beyond a doubt, its winning card is the volcanic little island of Chryssi, which will take your breath away with its stunning natural beauty.

Get to it by boat on a day trip; an one-hour sail to the area of Vougiou Mati will take you to a string of more or less secluded coves, pristine beaches and dunes with gold and white sand, turquoise crystal clear waters, but also acres and acres of forests of rare cedar trees.
