Sitia is a small market city in Lasithi that is laid out in a horseshoe shape and it is perfect for those who wish to relax in a peaceful and quiet place. Although it is not among the most popular cities to visit in Crete, the long sandy beach offers not only moments of relaxation and sun bathing but also windsurfing opportunities for the more adventurous.

One of the places definitely worth visiting in Sitia is the Toplou monastery, one of the most important monasteries in Crete that is impressive not only from afar but also when you explore it. For those who enjoy hiking, Richtis Gorge is the most famous gorge in Lassithi and it ends in the beautiful beach of Richtis that it is definitely worthy to visit.
