Agia Pelagia - Lygaria
About 18 km West of Heraklion you find the little tourist resort Agia Pelagia. The development of the area started about 30 years ago. Today, Agia Pelagia host some of the most luxurius hotels in the island!
Along the narrow beach around the bay are situated one taverna after another. It is not expensive to eat there, most of the tavernas offer menus with a starter and some Greek dish for only 5€. In the little street "Odo Agia Pelagia" you can find all manner of shops to meet your needs: gold- and silver shops, souvenir shops, internet cafes, an ATM, supermarkets and car hiring companies. What you won't find in Agia Pelagia are big clubs but there are a few bars and cafes.
The beach is narrow, but nice and sandy. It is possible to hire sun beds and umbrellas and there are plenty of opportunities to hire water bikes and partake in other kinds of water sport. As the town beach is so small, if you want less crowded and more remote beaches, they can still be found nearby without too much difficulty.
