Makry Gialos Vacation Packages
Makry Gialos is situated about 240 miles (386 kilometers) southeast of Athens, the national capital, and approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Heraklion.
Of course, visiting just one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a glimpse into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to savour Crete Island's other natural and man-made attractions. Roughly 14 miles (23 kilometers) away is Sitia. Head here to enjoy the Toplou Monastery and Vai Palm Grove.
When it's time to spread your wings, visit the nearest regional center. Agios Nikolaos lays 18 miles (29 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions including Lato, Gournia Archaeological Site and Agios Nikolaos Archaeological Museum. Spinalonga Castle and Lake Voulismeni are just a few of the other visitor attractions on offer here.
Travelers who explore Crete Island delight in discovering the open-air museums here. Spirituality is a pivotal facet of every community's make-up, so why not visit Crete Island's monasteries and other important religious sites.
No vacation is really complete without a bit of R&R. Sunbathing is one way to relax in this region and cycling is another. Take a break from sightseeing and spend a few relaxing hours canoeing or scuba diving.
All good things come to an end, but be rest assured, when you have to say "Yiá sou" to Makry Gialos, you'll be leaving with lots of memories to take home.
