Fantastic accommodation and everything you could wish for a perfect family holiday!
The accommodation was exactly as advertised, clean and brilliantly equipped. Location and setting were perfect- large shared swimming pool where our boys (12 and 8) made friends. Resort beautiful. Literally the best family holiday we’ve had!

Makri Gialos is literally translated as 'long shore’. The long beach and several sandy coves that are never overcrowded, provide excellent conditions for swimmers of all experience and children due to the soft, gently shelving main beach and clean, clear blue water. Makrigialos now has become a popular resort due to its beautiful bay, long sandy beach and the friendly local hospitality. It is still unspoiled and an ideal spot for those searching for quiet holidays, with visitors returning year after year. The long sandy beach has crystal clear shallow waters and is perfect for children and non- swimmers,in summer it has a selection of water sports. The beach is lined with a good variety of tavernas to suit all tastes, the fishing harbour being the most picturesque part of the village. Makrigialos has a very good supply of shops, tavernas, cafes, and water sport facilities, disco bars, one bank, pharmacy, doctor, dentist, car rental, florist and car service stations. There is a street market (9.00-14.00) each Friday on the cross road to Agios Stefanos, near the harbour entrance. In traditional tavernas meat, fish and other local dishes are served. The numerous fish tavernas also serve fresh fish caught locally. In all restaurants and cafes, the quality of the food is excellent and prices are reasonable. The excellent climate of the area (around 340 sunny days per year), the beautiful landscape and the warm hospitality attracts visitors of all ages.
