Heraklion Lygaria beach


Lygaria Heraklion: Lygaria is a soft sand beach situated 23 km north west of Heraklion town. It is a lovely narrow stretch of sand with calm and warm waters. The sands are clean with parasols and chairs on the central part of the curvy stretch enclosed by tall lush green hills.

It is popular as a perfect place to relax in a quaint setting after some partying at the well developed Agia Pelagia beach resort that lies close to Lygaria.

There are enough facilities and amenities with many taverns, cafes and souvenir shops lining the back of the narrow beach. There are rooms and apartments available for rent near Lygaria. The road in the hills leading to the beach is a little steep, so be careful while riding on your own.

Lygaria as well as the beaches to its west are safe from the Meltemia summer winds which can sometimes hit the northern coast of Crete. Lygaria is just 17km away from Heraklion to its northwest and it sits off the national highway to Rethymno. There are frequent bus services also to this area.
