About the location
The little town of Missiria is perched on a Blue Flag beach on Crete’s northern coast. Life here is all about that stretch of sand – park yourself by the sea for a fix of sunbathing, swimming and watersports. The seafront’s Greek tavernas provide cold lunchtime drinks and seafood suppers, while a line-up of shops, mini golf and sports can keep kids occupied. If your feet get itchy, Missiria is around four kilometres from the town of Rethymnon. Hop on a bus to explore its Venetian harbour, iconic fortress and picturesque old town. 
Transfer time
1 hour 5 minutes from Heraklion airport.
