Makrigialos is located 58km southeast of Agios Nikolaos and 23km east of Ierapetra. It is a small town, located near the exit of the lush canyon Pefki. Being initially a humble harbor with no roads in the ‘50s, Makrigialos has faced a strong growth and has become the largest tourist destination in the region of southeast Crete. It actually consists of two settlements, Makrigialos and Analipsi, which are now united. In the village you can find large and small hotels, taverns, restaurants, bar and cafes, super markets, bakeries, ATMs, doctor and pharmacy.
