Mochlos is a small picturesque fishing village located in the gulf of Mirabello in Eastern Crete, easily within reach of Agios Nikolaos, Ierapetra and Sitia (all an easy one hour drive), and the possibilities for exploration and sightseeing are numerous. At Mohlos Village you won’t find any all-inclusive hotels, night clubs or fast food outlets, and that’s what makes it perfect. However there are great accommodation choices, among which villas to rent. With only a handful of tavernas, a couple of shops and two taxi men to the town, it’s ideal for a quiet little weekend get away or maybe longer, no noise, no pollution, and you can eat at maybe some of the best tavernas in Crete whilst looking over to the Minoan site, just a 5 minute boat ride away.There is only one small sandy beach at Mochlos, but there are plenty of opportunities for a good swim in the wider area. The local tavernas offer fresh fish, sun-dried octopus, local lamb, cheese pies and other local delicacies.
