Petra on Crete is my online journal and a guide to East Crete. I hope to inspire you to go out and discover all there is to see in Lasithi, Crete and enjoy it as much as I do. I write about my discoveries in the eastern most region of Crete, and sometimes a little more to the west. For most of the year I live in Myrtos, which is situated on the south-east coast of Crete, a perfect place from where to explore Lasithi (and Heraklion) by car, which I do whenever I can.

Of course the well-known places like Agios Nikólaos, Spinalonga, Vai, Moni Toplou, Ierapetra and Lasithi Plateau are well worth a visit, but I love to explore, and share and discover the less known and unknown places of this beautiful island. I’d like to see the authentic villages, visit gorges that are not flooded with tourists, walk in the forests or up in the mountains, see archaeologic settlements that are not visited by busloads of people every day, find the best places to have a coffee or eat real Greek food, drive along small mountain roads with amazing views and relax on the best beaches…

Want to see some of these amazing places for yourself? Need more information, have a question, want to do a daytrip, looking for a good-priced rental car or somewhere nice to stay? Just send me a message!
