Sitia is the most eastern harbour in Crete. It is easily seen from the west after you round Akrotiri Vamvakia. The Venetian fort above the harbour is very apparent from the west also. There is a lighthouse on the Akotiri that is very visible during the day. The buildings along the waterfront and of the town are also apparent from the sea.

Facilities: Sitia has good shopping for all provisions. There is water on the quay and fuel refill may be arranged. Minor repairs can be done in Sitia. There are Port Police and Custom Officials but no Immigration as Sitia is not a Port of Entry. Sitia has a General Hospital as well as private doctors, dentists, and pharmacies. There are banks, and telecommunication facilities and post offices with full services. There are also bus connections with Agios Nikolaos, Iraklion and Ierapetra and car rental agencies. The town of Sitia has many hotels and tavernas.

Comments: The stern-to bow-to mooring in the harbour provide good protection from all winds. The harbour entrance is lit by a flashing green light on the right and a flashing red one on the left.
