Myrtos is a special village, willing to host couples of all ages, families with children, also of all ages, eccentric groups of artists, people of letters and art.
In Myrtos, events with live music, dancing, food and drink take place in its taverns and restaurants on a weekly basis, while events take place during the summer months - mid-July to the end of August - in public places under the auspices of the Cultural Association of the community of Myrtos "Sarantapigos", and the Ierapetra Cultural Association.
Furthermore, the natural beauties of Myrtos and the surrounding area are admirable. A wide range is offered from Minoan Antiquities at a distance of 500 meters from the center, to charming gorges and interesting routes in mountains and slopes, for aspiring walkers, runners or cyclists.
Of course, we could not fail to make special mention of the crystal clear sea of Myrtos! The beach is awarded every year by the international "Blue Flag" program, which is an important incentive for the loggerhead turtles that enthusiastically visit it to lay their eggs.
