Tenda - Palekastro

TENTA is an area located at the most north-eastern side of Crete (see Map).

It is 7 kms away from the palm forest and beach Vai, 15 kms away from Palekastro village and 33 kms away from Sitia.

The main feature of the region is the rocks and cliff. The wild raw is perfectly combined with deep blue of the sea and sky.

The rocks expanded in the sea create refuge for a lot of fish. The sea at Tenta is ideal for the lovers of fishing and scuba diving. It is popular on the whole Crete and a lot of visitors come here to enjoy the magic of fishing. There is also pisciculture here.

Though the rocks rule over the whole area, there are some small, private voes with sandy beaches ideal for swimming hidden far from nosey eyes.
