Agia Galini (Holy Peace in Greek) was once a quite fishing village in a calm idyllic location that lies at the south coast of Crete.  Built around a small harbour, this picturesque seaside village is easily identifiable by the white houses and hotels perched high on narrow streets that gently tumble down the hillside to the harbour.  On the bustley quayside there are relaxing bars and traditional tavernas where good honest food is still served.



The coarse sandy beach stretches away to the east strung with sun-beds and parasols, it can be busy during high season, though many of the other smaller beaches that litter the coastline are easy to get to.  Hiring a car will open up the chance to visit this lesser known part of the island.


Today Agia Galini has turned into a lively holiday destination; nevertheless it has been able to preserve much of its charm and is surely one of the most attractive places in the south of Crete. Enjoy a lovely Crete holiday.


Heraklion Airport to Agia Galini is approx 90km (56miles) - 1hr 35mins by taxi
