How to get here

Access to the area is not that easy, a fact that has contributed to its limited tourist development. The basic portal is the city of Sitia with its port and small airport, which allow for connections to Athens, Herakleion and other neighboring islands. Access by car is via the rural road of Agios Nikolaos – Sitia – Palekastro or via the rural road of Agios Nikolaos – Ierapetra – Sitia. Both journeys, although environmentally and aesthetically beautiful, are quite long, and, due to their bad geometric characteristics, they require quite some time behind the wheel by today’s standards.
