Vai, or more specifically the palm forest of Vai, is one of the most popular and one of the most beautiful places in Crete. It draws thousands of visitors each year. They come not only for its wonderful palm tree forest, but also for the large sandy beach.

Vai is located 24 km east of Sitia and about 6 km from Palaikastro. Sitia is about 2 hours’ drive from Heraklion, and Vai is another 30 minutes further. From Sitia, take the road to Moni Toplou (Toplou Monastery) and continue another 8 km past the monastery to the palm forest.
