What to Know Before Visiting Mirtos village

Apartments and hotels in Mirtos village from Crete Island

Mirtos, sometimes spelt Myrtos, is a delightful seaside village located in the Lassithi Prefecture of southeast Crete, in close proximity to Ierapetra. As the administrative centre of a municipality comprised of itself and four other villages, Mirtos has a modest population of approximately 500, according to the 2001 census.

The People of Mirtos

Agriculture dominates the local economy, as evidenced by the prevalence of greenhouses in the region. The inhabitants primarily engage in farming, yet the influx of tourists during summer seasons adds a dynamic dimension to Mirtos’ economy.

Amenities and Services

Despite its small size, Mirtos offers a range of facilities for visitors, including accommodation options, restaurants, tavernas, café-bars, and minimarkets. You will also find a petrol station, but for pharmaceutical and banking needs, nearby Ierapetra provides these services. Transportation between Mirtos and Ierapetra is convenient, either by car or bus which runs every two hours.

Getting to Mirtos: Your Route to a Greek Haven

Depending on your point of departure, the journey to Mirtos varies. From Heraklion, the road leads to Viannos, Mirtos, and then Ierapetra. This approximately two-hour drive offers breathtaking views, especially after Viannos, showcasing one of Crete’s stunning pine forests. If you’re travelling from Agios Nikolaos, Sitia or Ierapetra, a short 16 km trip on the district road heading west will lead you to Mirtos, nestled at the mouth of the River Kryos.

Mirtos’ Beaches: Basking in the Cretan Sun

Renowned for its beautiful beach adorned with ash-grey sand and crystal-clear waters, Mirtos is a haven for sun-seekers. This locale is notably sheltered from the northwesterly winds and harsh northerlies, which frequently affect the south coast beaches of Crete.

Exploring the Area: Beaches and Beyond

Aside from Mirtos’ main beach, several other nearby beaches offer their own charm. There’s the picturesque beach at Tertsa village, just 4 km away, and to the east, a pebbled beach lined with tamarisk trees. Although Mirtos’ beach is the favoured choice, all these spots offer unique and beautiful experiences.

Mirtos: A Blend of Tradition and Tourism

Despite rapid development in recent years, Mirtos has retained its traditional character, and its charm and allure remain undiminished. The village becomes a lively hub in summer, with peaceful winter days dedicated to agricultural pursuits.

The Unique Charm of Mirtos

Mirtos offers a truly unique atmosphere, characterized by its variety of colours: blue doors, white walls, red tomatoes on trees, and vibrant flora. Known for its tranquillity and absence of hectic nightlife, Mirtos is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life.

Things to Do in Mirtos

Mirtos provides plenty of opportunities for exploration and relaxation. Wander through narrow streets, visit the local café (kafenio), explore the Minoan settlement of Pirgos, or just enjoy a day at the beach. You can also take a drive to Ierapetra and visit the island of Chrissi or explore the town itself.

A Peek into Mirtos’ Past: Tracing the Minoan Footsteps

Mirtos’ history extends back to the Early Minoan period (c. 2800-2000 BC). Two notable Minoan settlements near Mirtos – Fournou Korifi and Pirgos – reflect its ancient origins. These locations, particularly Pirgos, can be visited via an easy path, providing a unique glimpse into the region’s rich history.
