Agia Galini Village in Rethymno
Information About Agia Galini
Crete Agia Galini Rethymno: Agia Galini is a pretty coastal village lying around the sheltered bay of Messara which opens to the Libyan Sea. The village is located 55 km south east of Rethymno town and 75 km from Heraklion.
Its picturesque port is quite busy during the summer season where boats depart for Agios Georgios, Preveli and the nearby islets. The attractive village has numerous accommodations of all types (even camping sites) to offer, as well as plenty of restaurants, taverns, bars, clubs, cafes and shops. The natural beauty in combination with the tourist facilities of Agia Gallini captivates all the visitors and creates a charming atmosphere.
Narrow cobbled alleys start from the port and make their way inside the picturesque village and old houses perched one above the other against a steep cliff add to the beautiful setting. A gorgeous pebbled beach stretches over one kilometer in front of the village and a nudist beach in close distance.
On the eastern side of the bay, where the village coils up, many marine caves hide in the rocky shores and can be visited by boats which regularly leave from the port of Agia Galini. Those wonderful caves are really worth the visit because of the astonishing light effects created by the rays of the sun on the blue sea. Frequent boat excursions are organized to the southern part of Crete.
