Makrigialos beach is located 58 km Southeast of Agios Nikolaos, facing the north African coast. It is a large very well developed tourist village in the green Pefki canyon. The village offers everything you need during your holidays; large and small hotels, taverns, restaurants, bars, cafes, super markets, bakeries, medical services, water-sports and more. The main reason for the success of this town is the beautiful long white sandy beach in front of the village and the green scenery behind and around the village. (Makri means ‘long’ and gialos means ‘shore’ in Greek) The sea at this beach is very shallow and usually calm because it is protected from winds.
