Lassithi Greece, the easternmost region of Crete, is one of the best places for complete immersion in nature and relaxation. Lassithi prefecture consists of many little towns, cosmopolitan coastal resorts, and picturesque mountainous villages. Except for some popular villages, like Elounda and Sissi, the rest of Lassithi remains a destination off the beaten tourist trail.
The postcard-perfect coastline of Lassithi is fringed with some of the finest beaches of Crete. The most popular beach in Lassithi is arguably Vai beach, an exotic blonde-sand beach surrounded by a palm tree forest.
