Makrigialos is situated on the south east coast of Crete. Makrigialos is only 30 minutes from the towns of Ierapetra (on the south coast) and Sitia (on the north coast).

Makrigialos has some of the best beaches in all of Crete. There are many secluded coves, all gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. A mountain ridge runs West to East across the island and it is this which gives Southern Crete it's own very special climate. The mountains shield this part of the island from any inclement weather. Additionally Makrigialos itself is surrounded by it's own mountain range. This geography means that the Makrigialos area has the best climate in all of Crete, and possibly the entire Mediterranean. The area is popular with tourists all through the winter. It is not difficult to understand why the area produces what is considered to be the best olive oil in the world.

Crete really is a place that allows you to do as little as much as you want. The island is quite simply beautiful, and it would be a shame to visit Crete and not see some of it. Driving is easy and car hire is very reasonable. We strongly recommend that you hire a car. For the price of pre-booked airport transfers for a family of four, you can probably hire a car for a week. If you wish to hire a car, we can recommend a company.

All manner of water sports are available within easy reach, including scuba diving, fishing, sailing, etc. Other nearby attractions include: The gorges of Pefki, Dasaki and Pevrolakia Water Park at Ierapetra, day boat trip to nearby Lefki island & Koufonisi, wine-tasting at the Kaspa monastery, traditional Cretan evenings in Pefki. Makrigialos hosts the prestigious Casa dei Mezzo music festival in June.

The Bayview Apartment Complex is a small, modern complex of town houses, penthouses, apartments and bungalows. They are built to the very highest standards, incorporating the most modern materials with the emphasis on integrating the buildings with the beautiful Cretan environment. By the use of natural, sustainable materials and with energy saving properties, Bay View is designed to provide comfort, atmosphere, and enjoyment for everyone who lives or visits here whilst integrating sensitively with the spectacular natural beauty of the area and the environment.

Other Activities include: Children's activity park, snorkeling, trekking, shopping, restaurants, bars

We had a lovely family holiday in Bayview. The apartment is well maintained and offers all the facilities you could want. The location is great with some wonderful views of the sea and mountains. The pool was never too busy and the beach in Makrigialos was excellent. We would certainly recommend this property. Many thanks Gavin

Great Location, Stunning Apartment

An excellent location, in an unspoilt part of the island. A car is a necessity. The property was very comfortable with good facilities, was clean and well maintained and the air con was much appreciated after a day out in the heat. The pool and garden areas provided an attractive setting and the rooftop terrace gave us superb views of the surrounding area by day and the stars at night. An excellent service was provided by the management who were friendly and willing to offer information on the area. The beach in the resort was not over populated even in August and for the cost of a drink you can use the sunloungers and parasols provided by the beach bars. We enjoyed the local restaurants in particular Dragon's Cave, Porphyra and Kastro.

Lovely development

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, my kids had a small bedroom with bunk beds in and my husband and I had a double bed in the main apartment which was absolutely fine.

The apartment was very well equipped, modern and clean. The air conditioning worked very well to keep the apartment cool and was not too noisy to leave on at night.

We were hoping we would be able to walk into town, but it was just a bit too far, and I wouldn't have felt safe walking down the unlit road back to the apartment at night.

The owner of the apartment was very helpful, and communicated very well with us.

My only complaint about this block was that both the pools were very cold, to the point that normally in holiday we would all spend ages in the pool, but this year it was literally a very quick dip to cool off, or you got too cold. Some form of heating would be ideal.
Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a great time at our apartment. We work very hard to ensue all our guests enjoy their stay. The pools are not heated as they are generally warm enough during the summer sun and ideal to cool-off during the heat of the day. We are sorry that you found them too cool.

Bay View is a lovely development in a quiet area of Crete; it was clean and well maintained. The owner, Gavin, is very helpful and provided lots of great advice. He gave us maps and was always helpful and informative. The accommodation is fitted out with all the usual kitchen appliances, TV, DVD player, and was clean and well maintained; towels and some beach towels were also provided. There is a double bedroom in the studio area. There is a separate bedroom with bunk beds for our two children. It is perfect for a family of 4, but may be a little crowded with 4 adults. There is an Internet connection in the living area via a cable connection and a wireless connection close to the reception & swimming pool. Views from the terrace were beautiful, better than advertised. This area of Crete is very quite so if you are looking for a total chill out zone this is the place. There are many stunning and virtually deserted beaches within easy reach and the relaxed attitude of the locals adds to the peacefulness. If you want a little more life then the local town has several lively taverns and restaurants. It was a 2hr drive from Heraklion airport so a car is essential and if you don't have a car you will miss out on the beaches and mountain drives. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to family and friends and will stay here again if I re-visit Crete. Another striking thing about East Crete was to almost total absence of litter. A stunning area with peaceful, relaxing ambiance and excellent accommodation. Perfect.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We really do try to make sure every guest has a great experience at Bayview.

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 28, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
We stayed in this apartment in May 2012 and had a fantastic time! Our children range from 8 to 16 years and all were catered for! Apartment was modern, clean and beautifully furnished - help on hand from housekeeper who live locally and were able to help with recommendations for restaurants, beaches etc.

Eating out was no problem with a selection of restaurants close by and down at the harbour which was a short 20 minute walk along the beach. Gustos at the harbour, Gabbianos and the Porphyra were our particular favourites although we never had a bad meal and the prices were reasonable.

Plenty to do if you didnt want to sit at the fabulous pool all day. Down at the beach, everyone took part in jet skiing, banana boat, pedalo and snorkelling. The beach is set in a sheltered cove with beatiful clear water - great for younger kids as it gets deep gently and is fantastically clear for snorkelling!

Overall we all had a fantastic time and have no problem in recommending this to other families. It is one hour and 45 minute drive from the airport but it is well worth the travelling time!!

Makrigialos is a tranquil village, surrounded by historical, cultural and natural wonders ideal for couples and families. The natural beauty of the area is simply staggering with deserted coves and bays seemingly round every turn which benefits from some of the best weather in the Mediterranean.

If you want a taste of the real Crete, this is for you. It is the complete opposite of Malia, it is not commercialised or filled with nightclubs.

Makrigialos has a small, lively harbour that comes alive at night with numerous local restaurants and cafes serving the finest local food. Local waterside tavernas welcome you with cool drinks and delicious food.

The nearest towns of Ierapetra and Sitia both have busy water fronts with cafes spilling out onto the promenades. Both have good shopping, but if you want to go a step further, Heraklion offers shopping to international standards. The area offers all manner of activities & water sports. Including pedal boats, jet-skis, fishing boat charters and excursions to the nearby uninhabited island of Koufonisi are available during the summer.

Places to visit include a number of Roman and Minoan ruins; The Kapsa Monastery, 6km along the coast near the spectacular Pervolakia gorge; the mountain villages of Pefki, Agios Stefanos and Pervolakia; the protected gorge of Aspro Potamus; the Butterfly gorge, a 4.5 km walk from Koutsouras; Sitia, with its pleasant sea front lined with cafes and tavernas, a harbour, and the Roman Fort; Ierepetra boasts the longest beach on Crete, has a museum and the remains of a Venetian fort on the quay; Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, and Spinalonga Island are within easy reach.
