Lasithi - Provence of eastern Crete

Lassithi is a region on the eastern side of Crete. Still untouched by mass tourism, Lassithi boasts an unspoiled natural setting. Although some popular places, such as Elounda, Sissi, Sitia, and Ierapetra lie in Lassithi, tourism has yet to gasp itself upon this region.

Lassithi Crete stands out for its natural landscape and beautiful beaches! Lassithi beaches have clear waters and an exotic Caribbean vibe. The best beach in Lassithi is Vai, a gorgeous beach with crystal clear waters, which is insulated by a palm tree forest! It’s the perfect place to relax without the hustle and bustle of tourism.

But, Lassithi is famous not only for its beaches but also for its rural villages. Lassithi Plateau, one of the most picturesque areas in Lassithi, is the best place to introduce yourself to local tradition and adapt to the slow rhythm of the island.

A drive around Lassithi Greece will bring you to archaeological sites, Medieval Castles, and tourist sites, such as Zakros Minoan Palace and Spinalonga island.
