Crete Sitia Lassithi: The beautiful town of Sitia is located 70 km east of Agios Nikolaos town and counts on 8,500 inhabitants. It lies around a natural bay. The port of Sitia is filled with many fishing boats and several waterfront cafes and taverns creating a peaceful and charming atmosphere. Boats depart regularly for Rhodes.
All types of accommodation can be found in Sitia as well as many tourist facilities. A fine sandy beach lies east of the port and offers various rentals and sea sports. A small airport is also available but only a few flights operate during the summer months (two weekly flights to Athens and one to Karpathos and Kassos).
A Venetian fortress used to stand east of the town and today only a small part of it can be seen in the town adding to the natural beauty of Sitia. From Sitia one can visit beautiful monasteries, archaeological sites and some idyllic beaches found in the wider region.
