Civitel Creta Beach lies in Ammoudara, a clean, long stretch of sandy beach that’s only 10 minutes away from Heraklion by car. This area is bustling with shops and nightlife during the summer season, full or restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, supermarkets and even a medical clinic.

Just minutes away, the quaint city of Heraklion boasts several museums, a Venetian castle and noteworthy monuments to explore (See Attractions). Ammoudara is also quick 15-minute ride to the airport and offers easy access to the highway that takes you to all other parts of the island. You can easily get to nearby Rethymnon for a change of scenery or to the even closer party town of Hersonissos.

For the more adventurous, an easy trip to the center of Heraklion and the famous site of Knossos nearby will fascinate you beyond words. The city’s Greek hospitality, portside castle, Venetian buildings, rich museums and Ottoman vestiges will delight you beyond words and will immerse you in a spectacular Mediterranean culture like no other. After all, Heraklion is one of Europe’s southern-most cities, combining the best of Eastern and Western beauty, civilization and culture for you to enjoy.
