No doubt, Ierapetra “the bridge of the Libyan sea” is the sunniest holiday resort in Europe…
The character and charm of the old warm neighbourhood has been retained, whilst it has been given new life as a shopping and eating experience for the visitor. A tempting variety of shops, open-air cafes, bars, restaurants and traditional taverns, makes Ierapetra the ideal place to relax, enjoying shopping, eating, drinking or simply wondering around!

Ierapetra has the distinction of being the southernmost town facing the African coast, Ierapetra enjoys the smoothest, almost rainless weather in Europe, with a temperature that rarely drops below 12o C all year long !
