Boats in Sitia

Boats in Sitia

Sitia is a port town in the far east of Crete, in the prefecture of Lasithi. So far it has been spared the blessings of mass tourism; even though there is a long and beautiful beach along the road leading to the palm beach of Vai and several places of historical interest, the town is visited by few tourists and has largely kept its genuine Mediterranean flair.
