Agia Pelagia is a small coastal town with a lovely beach, suitable for relaxing holidays in Crete.
20 kilometres west of Heraklion, as the national road drifts high above the coastline, you'll begin to see the first impressive pictures of Agia Pelagia – the type of pictures that postcards are made of.
As you make your way closer to the shore, the buildings increase in numbers.
Agia Pelagia has developed around its shores, so that's where you'll find many of the tavernas and cafeterias.
In the center of Agia Pelagia you will find a super market, tourism offices, pharmacy, an ATM, tourist and souvenir shops and the taxi stand. The Agia Pelagia bay is protected from the wave-creating north winds, and the sea is almost always serene.
On the weekends, many people from Heraklion find refuge on its sandy shores for a cooling dip in the azure waters.
There is no intense night life here. There are, of course, a good selection of bars and cafes to enjoy your favourite drink, but Agia Pelagia is mainly for people interested in calm, relaxing sea-side holidays.
There are many restaurants and tavernas featuring Cretan, Greek or international cuisine, and all have a beautiful view of the sea.
As you dine in Agia Pelagia, you can also partake of the wonderful scenes around you, and snap these memories into a treasured photo album: the various shades of the rippling sea, the cute little kid building a sand castle, the old fishing boats anchored in the bay, the fishermen preparing their nets for the night's labour.
And at night, when the beach is empty and the sounds of the day fade away, and the soft purl of the sea becomes more vocal, Agia Pelagia is even a more magical site.
Whether looking at it from an elevated hilltop or sitting so close you can almost reach out and touch it, Agia Pelagia is the place where you will enjoy a relaxing holiday on Crete.
