An authentic Greek experience awaits in Agia Pelagia. Situated just 22 kilometres from Heraklion, this lovely little Greek town is found right at the centre of a stunning bay on the island's east coast. Overlooking the sparkling Aegean, Agia Pelagia is a refreshing world away from the hustle and bustle of the island's capital and busier resorts making it the perfect summer holiday destination.
The beaches are a real attraction in Agia Pelagia as, apart from their golden sands, they largely lie sheltered from incoming winds making them ideal for swimmers and for a bit of water sporting fun. If the main beach gets a little crowded in the high season, a quieter option can be found on Ligaria Beach which is slightly smaller but again enjoys a sheltered setting and is the ideal place to try out some snorkelling. Mononaftis (Lonely Sailor) is another great choice offering plenty of privacy due to its being sheltered by a rocky outcrop ensuring the warm turquoise waters remain serene and calm.
If you've always fancied the idea of giving scuba diving a go, then Agia Pelagia is a good place to start with its first-rate diving centre that is suited to both beginners and more proficient divers. If you don't want to delve beneath the surface, then why not take a boat trip? Boat trips are available that will take you over the mesmerising turquoise waters of the Aegean and give you an opportunity to explore some quieter beaches and secluded swimming spots. When it comes to nightlife, it is more on the relaxed side here than in the busier resorts, but there are still plenty of cocktail bars and traditional Greek tavernas offering authentic Greek cuisine and international dishes.
Quiet, relaxed and picturesque, Agia Pelagia is the ideal place to recharge your batteries and unwind in an authentic Grecian atmosphere. From self catering to all inclusive, there is plenty of quality choice in Agia Pelagia.
