    “In the center of Agia Pelagia is the small but nice beach. The end of September it was not crowded, it was to get both availability and chairs and umbrellas. The village is spread over a relatively large area, many rentals are higher. That's good for a little more fresh air at night, but you have steep paths to / from the beach accept. There are rather few usually purely on tourism-oriented businesses in the village, but have a decent selection. In other places, there are more of them, but not better. The supply of food is okay. The beach is lined with tavernas and cafes. Our favorite: the tavern "oregano", with a wonderful Cretan cuisine made with fresh ingredients and herbs - highly recommended for those who are vegetarian or vegan. The place is very conveniently located to explore Central Crete by car.”

    “The bay of Agia Pelagia is beautiful, the water is clear and great for snorkeling. The tavernas on the beach, we have had good experiences exclusively. Very nice hosts and waiters, very good food at reasonable advertised.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Agia Pelagia

Agia Pelagia situated on the north coast of Crete, 20 kilometres west of Heraklion and has a transfer time of twenty five minutes. It is built like an amphitheatre around the deep bay, surrounded by hills which provide protection from winds. Its sandy beach is long and narrow and there ...

are a number of shingle coves. AgiaPelagia's natural beauty and the modern facilities that are available to its visitors make it a very popular resort.
The most popular time to visit Agia Pelagia is in the summer. The season extends from April to October when the temperature range is from twenty to thirty degrees. Nightlife in Agia Pelagia is fairly peaceful. It is not the place to
go if you are a late night party animal. There are a good number of bars, pubs restaurants and tavernas where you
can spend a pleasant evening overlooking the bay. Because Agia Pelagia has developed along the contours of
the hills surrounding the bay, every hotel and restaurant has magnificent sea views.

n Aghia Pelagia holiday will see you in a beautiful seaside fishing village, at the centre of a vast, amphitheatre-esque bay, located 23km northwest of Heraklion.

The resort takes its name from a church in the Monastery of the Sebbathians, the ruins of which can be found just 1 km outside the village.

The village itself offers many bars, cafes, shops, boutiques and tavernas, serving traditional and also international dishes.
Surrounded by many picturesque mountains and hills, Aghia Pelagia is a great place to explore beyond the town centre. Beachwise, there are about nine smaller, more secretive beaches in addition to the central bay, easily accessible by foot for those who crave a slice of adventure with their search for the perfect sunbathing spot.

Where Zeus used to bathe

Crete | Crete is the most popular holiday destination for those people who want to spend their holiday in Greece. Due to the diverse countryside the biggest island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea provides the holiday maker with many alternatives and options. Regardless whether you are seeking a holiday on the beach (more than 1000 kilometers of coastline), want to undertake a hiking tour to the mystic places related to the Greek Gods or just would like to take a stroll through one of the many attractive towns every holidaymaker will find this island an absolute paradise. Crete also welcomes families with children with open arms. The beaches offer the smallest family members a lot of space to play and explore. Those interested in exploring the sea world further down will find a selection of scuba diving schools where you can make your diving license. A popular daytrip is the under nature conservation protected Palm Beach of Vai which can be found on the east side of the island. It is referred to as the Caribbean beach of Europe as its characteristics are a fine white sandy beach surrounded by old palm trees. One of the most beautiful and longest beaches Crete offers can be found in Rethymnon. This is a tourist town with many fish taverns in a Venetian port and numerous small souvenir shops.
One of the main attractions of Crete is the Samaria Gorge on the south side of the island which is the longest in Europe. Those who dare may take a hike along the cliffs. In the Diktaean Cave, that is one of 3000 mountain caves to be found on Crete, you can experience the starting point of Greek Mythology. A legend has it that Zeus was born and raised in the cave of Psycho which is located in Lasithi in Eastern Greece not far away from Heraklion. Another popular tourist attraction is the palace of Knosso which is one of the most well known archeological excavation sites in the world.
When paying a visit to the town of Heraklion you must plan to visit the archaeological museum as it is regarded as one of the most spectacular of its kind with unique artifacts. To round off a lovely day you should also plan to look up one of the many taverns. Here you can take in and be enchanted by the Greek folklore with Mediterranean flair until late into the night.
