Agia Pelagia

Agia Pelagia is one of the most well known bays in Crete. It is made up of a cluster of villages and smaller sandy beaches. The main beach is populated with cafes, shops, restaurants, and small bars, but only to the extent that it does not spoil the main advantage this place has to offer - serene scenery and genuine Cretan hospitality. The village offers unique benefits. It is close to all the main attractions of Crete (such as Knossos and The Heraklion Archaeological Museum) but still retains a peaceful, unspoilt village atmosphere. Agia Pelagia is also close to both main public hospitals of Heraklion as well as Mesogeios dialysis center that our hotel associates with.

Agia Pelagia Location

Whether you arrive by plane or boat, the same route is followed. Follow signs on the National Road leading to Rethymnon/Chania They will be clearly marked from both the seaport and the airport.After you pass both bridges of Pandanassa and Paliokastron you will see a sign on your left handside to Agia Pelagia. Follow the road down the mountain all the way down to the village. The hotel is located on a road called El. Venizelou, before you reach the school and the main parking of the village. If you miss that first exit by the national road there are other two following shortly after, one on the left again and one on the right after the gas station.

Apart from the main beach of Agia Pelagia, one can visit Lygaria beach , another sandy well organised coast on the east side and on the west side there are two more unique small organised harbours, Mononautis and Psaromoura.Nearby villages worth visiting are Fodele and Rogdia. Fodele is considered to be the birth place of the famous Greek painter El Greco -taking a walk by the small river in the middle of the village or the woods full of orange trees will take you to another era- while Rogdia will take your breath away with its panoramic view of the bay of Agia Pelagia and Heraklion. In the center of the village  an ATM is provided as well as taxi center and doctor`s office.
