East of Sitia about 25 Km from the city is the beautiful beach of Vai. It is a unique in its kind in Europe. That is because of its rich palm trees, which in combination with the blue- green waters gives the feeling that you are on a tropical coast.
The beach is crystal clear with sand, organized and has received many awards and the blue flag of the European union. The camping is not allowed. It is an area which is really aesthetically different from the usual beaches in Greece. Near Vai is the Itanos beach as well as the Toplou Monastery.
