Your Destination for Relaxation
The ideal Crete location for your next summer holiday. You like the beach? Tholos Bay Suites has that just beyond our front yard. It curves in an arc more than 700 m., sandy shore on one end, pebbly shore on the other. The shallow waters and sandy bottom are superb.
The front of the property actually touches the water, making it just a short walk away.
Maybe you are a pool person. You will enjoy sitting out by our spacious pool with its sun lounges and umbrellas. A view of the bay, relaxing sounds of the sea, mountain views and the wondrous sounds of nature.
If snorkeling is your choice of activities, there are many areas close by that will be of interest for you.
A good hike up the mountain from the village of Kavousi is the archaeological site of Azoria.
If trees could talk......
Before arriving at the site of Azoria you will pass by this designated National Monument, the Ancient Olive Tree of Kavousi. Testing has determined the age to be approximately 4000 years old, quite possible the oldest in the world.
A very short walk at Tholos Beach will lead you to the Roman Era ruins of Tholos Granary.
Island Pseira, in the middle of the bay, creates natural protection for Tholos Bay. As a result, Tholos Beach has shallow waters with a sandy bottom for the first 50 m and then gently deepens. The beach is ideal for kids, relaxing, playing or athletic practice.
Kavousi, in addition to the traditional tavernas and kafeneia, has 25 churches, some of them from the Byzantine Era.
In the city of Ierapetra, also a drive of around 20 minutes, day-trips via small ferry boats are available, as well as a host of shops, taverns, cafeterias, pizzerias, bars, great beaches and historic sites.
During the year, especially in summer, all around Crete, there are dozens of cultural events and festivals with Greek music and Cretan dance, as well as, traditional food and local wines.
