Agia Fotia (Agia Fotia). Agia Fotia is a small seaside town on Crete east of Ierapetra and 53 kilometres away from Agios Nikolaos. There are not many accommodations but there are a few Taverns and a beautiful beach. One-day tourists mainly visit Agia Fotia. Swimming in the sheltered bay is delightful. In Agia Fotia you can eat delicious food near the sea. Especially for people who love diving or snorkeling this is an ideal place to unwind. For the explorer by (rental) car, it is great to stock up on a dirt road again and again and come out on a deserted beach. It is a fantastic place for tranquility. For shopping you should go to Ierapetra. Not far away from Agia Fotia a cemetery dating from the early Minoan period 3300 – 2000 BC has been discovered by archaeologists.
