The port of Sitia offers a ferry service to Heraklion and many other Greek islands.
“Sitia exudes an attractive vibe that stems from not having sold its soul to mass tourism. It’s a slow-paced, friendly place where agriculture is the mainstay of the local economy. In the tranquil old town above the fishing harbour, whitewashed buildings tumble down a hillside laced by steep staircases and accented by a ruined Venetian castle. Down below, tavernas and cafes line the bustling waterfront and
wide promenade along Karamanli. A long, sandy beach skirts the bay to the east.”
