Holidays in
Analipsi

Local life and special beaches

To get a taste of traditional Cretan life, you often need to head inland, away from the island’s beautiful beaches. But in Analipsi you get the best of both worlds. Analipsi holidays offer visitors the chance to stay in a peaceful village that’s still beloved by locals, but it comes with the added advantage of several premium beaches. Expect a warm welcome from local residents as you wander the village and explore its bars, restaurants and cafés.

There’s enough going on here to keep things varied, but nothing shatters the sense of calm that makes holidays to Analipsi so special. And if you do want to mix it up with some big-city buzz, Crete’s capital city, Heraklion, is just a 20-minute drive away. Analipsi may not shout loudly about its many highlights, but you’ll feel all the more satisfied when you arrive at this truly special spot.

Your Analipsi questions, answered

Faraggi Aposelemi is a gorge to the west of Analipsi with several hiking trails suitable for all abilities. If you’re feeling energetic, they continue for miles.

Due to its compact size, easy beach access and relaxed atmosphere, Analipsi is a great destination for children. You’ll also find water parks and theme parks nearby.

Analipsi itself is small and easy to explore by foot or bike, but a lot of visitors hire a car for day trips along the coast and further afield.

Best things to do in Analipsi

Beach hop

Why do all your sunbathing in one place? Besides the main beach at Analipsi, you also have the powdery golden sands of Lyttos Beach on your doorstep.

Sink a raki

You won’t have to look far to find this aniseed-flavoured tipple. In fact, Analipsi’s bar and restaurant owners may well share a glass with you.

Hit the surf

Analipsi beach is popular with windsurfers yet spacious enough to cater for beginners, so grab a sailboard (and an instructor if required) and head out.
