Makrigialos & Analipsis

Makrigialos and Analipsi, which have grown together, form a peaceful bathing place that is particularly popular with families because of its beautiful sandy beach and taverns close by. In the summer, if there are enough people interested, it is possible to make a boat trip from Makrigialos to the nearby, inhabited island Koufounisi. A few excavations can also be observed in this area; a sign leads to a late Minoan manor and a little further, next to the church, the remains of an old Roman settlement can be admired. Makrigialos is an authentic fisherman’s village with a lovely harbor, Analipsi is in comparison the more touristy of the two with many bars, cafe’s, restaurants and lovely little souvenir shops.
