Hiona beach, Lassithi Crete

The sandy beach of Hiona, small (300 meters long) but very nice, is situated at a distance of 92 kilometers eastern to Aghios Nicolaos , 22 kilometers far from Sitia at the East and 3 kilometers northeastern to Palaekastro, within the cove Grantes. The beach is affected by the winds blowing in the area.

The beach is not very organised; no accommodation facilities are offered at the beach itself, but the area from Palaekastro to the beach is full of hotels and rooms to let and it is a good idea to choose it for staying. You will find excellent food in the traditional taverns of the beach (there are three of them), which are famous all over the island for their fresh fish and excellent cooking. Don’t miss to ask for “kakavia” or “bouillabesse” (fish soup), or grilled fresh fish. The sea is marvelous, crystal clear and cool and the tamarisk trees on the beach offer you their precious shade during the difficult hours of hot summer days. The seabed is sandy and the sea deepens gradually, which make the beach ideal for children and elderly people. The small coves of the southeastern part of the beach offer more privacy and this part of the beach is clothing optional.

Access to the beach is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes. The last part (some 1,5 kilometer) is a rather difficult dirt track.
