Various activities in and around Mirtos
Mirtos is versatile
Swimming, taking a rest or reading a book on pleasant beaches, such as in Mirtos or Tertsa.
Discovery tours in the mountains with striking mountain villages, such as leaving Kalami.
Shopping in towns like Ierapetra and Agios Nikolaos.
Visits to special churches and monasteries, such as in Ano Viannos and Kritsa.
Fans of nude beaches can go just past Tertsa.
Having a walk
The area of Mirtos is perfect for hiking. So much beauty, literally within walking distance. Several trails have been marked, described or put on a map, and GPS guidance is available.
In eastern and southern Crete you can also walk with the English-speaking guide Angela Sturmayr.
Villa Mertiza rents mountain bikes. We can advise you how to take a ride in the mountains. Keep in mind that there is a lot of height difference in our hinterland. Our guests get a decent discount.
To Chrissi island by boat
Each day there are boats to the six kilometer long island Crissi. People go there to lie on the sandy white beach. But you can have a nice walk. Along with swimming in the super-blue water, this is a nice day trip we certainly recommend.
Villa Mertiza can supply special tickets and occasionally organizes a day trip.
