How to get there
We recommend that you rent a car through our website here as other means of transport are limited and infrequent (you cannot reach Mochlos by public transport).
Where to stay
At Mohlos Village you won’t find any all-inclusive hotels, night clubs or fast food outlets, and that’s what makes it perfect. With only a handful of tavernas, a couple 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 (You can swim if you’re brave).
There are only a few apartments to stay at but they are all run by friendly inn-keepers who are incredibly accommodating.
There is one small sandy beach, however, if you don’t mind rocks, there’s plenty of opportunities to get into the water around the sea front, great for a little snorkle. Just beside one of the tavernas, there is a natural rock pool which is heated by the sun during the day making it the perfect spot to have a little relax and take in the views.
Take the boat to the island which is a sight of ancient Minoan settlement where tombs, buildings, and houses have been discovered over the past few decades.
Mohlos or Mochlos village offers exceptional eating and recreational facilities. Picturesque tavernas "lapped by the waves" offer authentic Cretan cooking, based on the local olive oil, the best in the world, wonderful seafood tidbits and specialties and other gastronomic delights, while small bars offer low-key modern entertainment
