Agia Pelagia beach
Agia pelagia is a mostly sandy beach and a bustling seashore & village where you can have a marvelous swim at its tropical green waters, while admiring the natural Mediterranean beauty of the greater region. A cocktail would probably come out handy!
Lygaria beach is a quiet, but vivid coast, mostly rocky. It is a very convenient place to swim and have a lunch, drink some wine and Cretan raki with your desert and gaze at the natural beauty of the beach and the hills surrounding it
Fodele is an idylic and large sandy beach. When in place, you no longer know if you’re in Crete or the north African shores. Its a wonderful coastline that seems mysterious, but feels like the authentic Crete
Filakes beach (prasina nera) is something else! The most convenient way to reach it, is via a pedalo. It’s absolutely worth it. This small sandy cove reminds more of a Caribbean one. The water is perfectly green. The palm trees and pines next to it, makes it paradise on earth
Tripiti beach (rocky & sandy beach) is the most inaccessible of all beaches in the area of Agia Pelagia. To reach Tripiti beach, you must hike a bit. When swimming there you get an utter sense of freshness and relief. And a sense of freedom
