Description

We start our Kritsa and Myrtos beach excursion with a visit to an olive oil park. There you can experience first hand the standardization of extra virgin olive oil, table olives and olive paste. Moreover, you will be able to taste the authentic Greek product, which is famous for its great taste and its nutritional value, as well as other authentic Cretan products like “raki” and honey.

Later, we will visit one of the oldest villages on Crete. Even today it retains elements of Venetian architecture. The village of Kritsa. Here, you will have about an hour and a half of free time to stroll around its narrow streets. There you will find a lot of little souvenir shops, picturesque paths, Greek coffee shops, many old chapels, and museums. Try not to miss the traditional weavings manufactured with looms exclusively made by hand.

Myrtos Beach

Then, we head towards Myrtos Beach, 13 km west of Ierapetra, at the output of a wide valley filled with greenhouses and citrus groves. You will have plenty of free time to enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the nice beach of Myrtos, with the coarse grey sand that doesn’t stick to your body.

The beach is very spacious, isolated with crystal clear water. Moreover, Myrtos has a lot of taverns where you can enjoy traditional Greek food. After 2 and half hours in Myrtos, the day trip will end and we will make our way back to your hotels.

The Kritsa and Myrtos beach excursion is a great way to spend the day.
