Agia Galini in southern Crete

Agia Galina is located about 50 kilometres southeast of Rethymno and was previously a sleepy little fishing village, but is today one of southern Crete's largest tourist resorts with all possible facilities. Although it is a package-tour resort, Agia Galini does not feel particularly exploited.

The village is built on the hills above the fishing harbour, the view of the Libyan sea is very nice. Below the village is a quite long beach of decent quality. The beach is divided in two parts and is separated by a small river.

I have never stayed overnight in Agia Galini so I can't say how there is in the evenings, but I know others who usually stay here during their holidays, and they like Agia Galini very much. If you want to stay overnight you have plenty of hotels and pensions to choose from. One of the most popular is Palazzo Greco.

An advantage of staying in Agia Galini is that it is close to mythical Matala, and to two of my paradises in Crete: Agios Pavlos and Triopetra.
