The beach at Itanos, east Crete.

First recorded in the 5th century BC, Itanos was a major centre in east Crete.

It weathered regional rivalries with neighbouring Praesos and Ierapetra, and an earthquake in 795 AD.

From the 9th century, it suffered with Arab invasions, and was eventually abandoned in the 15th century as its inhabitants sought safer places farther inland.

While most people pack themselves on to the famous beach of Vai nearby, Itanos remains a little visited site of significant archaeological importance.
