Civitel Creta Beach
If you would like to stay on a quiet sandy beach outside Heraklion yet close enough to the city center for its historical sites & shopping, the Civitel Creta Beach on the golden shores of Ammoudara is an outstanding choice that combines all these elements. The renovated hotel is unique in its multiple private bungalows and tastefully refurbished hotel rooms set in natural landscaped gardens among more than 200 palm trees, just meters away from the beach.
In the immediate area of the hotel there are a number of restaurants, little shops and pubs that open late into the night and extend their warm Greek hospitality. A few minutes away by taxi or bus lies Downtown Heraklion with its Venetian harbor, museums and historical attractions.
