Situated on the beautiful Greek island of Crete, Agia Pelagia is a charming resort ideal for families and couples seeking a serene stay in the Mediterranean sun. With sandy beaches, safe waters and local tavernas, shops and bars aplenty, you’ve got everything you need.

 

This picturesque seaside fishing village was built in the middle of a beautiful amphitheatric bay, and having taken its name from the homonymous church, in the Monastery of the Sebbathians, Agia Pelagia holidays promise fascinating history mixed with seaside charm. 

 

Surrounded by rolling mountains and curvy hills, holidays to Agia Pelagia boast some of the most breathtaking sights. The quaint town is brimming with authentic restaurants, shops and souvenir stalls and it oozes a relaxing atmosphere, ideal for spending an evening dining alfresco. The nine sandy and rocky beaches serve up splash-worthy watersports and undisturbed time spent with the family.  

 

For those lovers of nature, a visit to Fodele - the mountain village home to famous artist El Greco – is a must. Nestled amid orange groves, this traditional Greek village is full of craft shops, family-run tavernas and green parks. Equally, hop on a boat trip leaving from the harbour and discover the many neighbouring resorts and hidden beaches that await. The nightlife on Agia Pelagia holidays is chilled, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars whereby you can sit in with a cocktail or two – those after a livelier night out though will have to visit Heraklion.

Places to go and things to do in Agia Pelagia

Unwind At Psaromoura Beach

Unwind At Psaromoura Beach

If you really fancy getting away from it all and enjoying some quality time with the family, Psaramoura Beach offers a wonderful day out. A small sandy beach with clear waters and an adventurous rocky bottom, this stretch promises the perfect place for your little ones to explore. It’s also protected from the north winds, making it a great little suntrap. If gentle swims and friendly vibes are your thing, this is the ideal beach for you and your family. Another popular stretch is Capsis beach, on the peninsular.

Visit Stalis Town

The town of Stalis is one of Crete’s most visited resorts and makes for a great day out during your holidays to Agia Pelagia. Here you’ll come across many holidaymakers from Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany, all making the most of the town’s golden sands, shallow waters and family friendly beach. Stalis is also the place to be if you’re looking for mouth-wateringly delicious food at great prices (and who isn’t!?).

Spend A Day In Achlada

Situated around 3km from Agia Pelagia is the small yet gloriously beautiful village of Achlada. Venture across to this village and you and your family can soak in some of the finest views in Greece along with some fantastic historical landmarks. The incredible natural beauty and fascinating history make this a must-do day trip when you’re on holiday in Achlada.

Visit The Vossakos Monastery

Allow your children’s imaginations to soar with a visit to the wonderful Vossakos Monastery. Built like a fortress with the main temple dedicated to the Holy Cross, this breathtaking masterpiece played an important revolutionary role in the Turks and was even destroyed twice. Until the late 1990’s, the monastery was completely ruined and as a result, deserted. Today, however, thanks to a wonderful restoration project, the place is once again fully operational and attracts many curious holiday-makers year in, year out.
