Overview

Kakkos Bay Hotel & Bungalows, situated on a beautiful bay with fine pebble beach between Koutsounari and Ferma, just 10km away from the small town of Ierapetra. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful garden with lots of different trees and flowers. A small hotel with a nostalgic ambience and a beautiful beach, good food and friendly staff.

Kakkos Bay Hotel is constructed in harmony with its natural environment and has a nostalgic ambience that is often missing from luxury hotels.

Style and quality with a big smile at this oldest hotel of eastern Crete (rooms have been completely refurbished, modern and clean), chic and superbly serviced, family-minded hotel on the beach, 10 minutes from Ierapetra town.

Anonymous chain hotels on Crete are legion, so Kakkos Bay Hotel - owned by the Kakkou family since the 70's and now vibrantly redecorated and brilliantly run by same family makes a hugely refreshing change.

Ten minutes' drive from Ierapetra small, lively and actively town with the highest temperatures in Crete and Greece.

It gazes out over a fine pebble bay, more than ‘just another beach hotel’, Kakkos is one of those rare places where the personal touch has been wrought to a fine small friendly hotel.

Explore other fairly quiet beaches nearby like Koutsounari, Agia Fotia, Galini, Achlia and Mavros Kolimbos or the interesting villages of Pefki and Agios Stefanos in the mountains above Makrigialos.

What to know

  • Often full in July and August, therefore you have to book really early.

  • Ierapetra is famous for its strong summer winds, but the Kakkos Bay beaches are always calm.
