Excursion to East Crete - Sitia, Vai, Ierapetra

Full Day Excursion toEast Crete - Sitia, Vai, Ierapetra

The first stop of this trip will be the beautiful palm tree forest of Vai (with 5.000 palm-trees), that in a strange way nature has dropped by the seaside of the crystal clear waters of the Cretan Sea. You can swim and sunbathe on the sandy beach. We continue to the Monastery of Toplou, and then to Sitia. Once destroyed by the wild pirate Barbarosa. Sitia today, still keeps part of its character with the walls of the old fort still standing there. From there, we depart and we drive to Ierapetra, about 1 hour way, to this beautiful town of South Crete with a history over 2500 years. You take your coffee at the harbour and then you leave.
