Just 20 km from Heraklion town and 50 km from Rethymnon town, Agia Pelagia is one of our favourite seaside villages in Crete, combining wonderful views, natural rugged coastline, bays, inlets and sandy beaches with turquoise waters, a string of tavernas and great facilities.

On offer is a spectacular Minoan village - creating history for children and adults alike - celebrating Crete and Europe's very first inhabitants.

With something for all ages, the resort keeps its own zoo, delighting children who are especially catered for.
