Agia Galini village is located on the southeast coast of Rethymnon prefecture, in the municipality of Agios Vasilios on the island of Crete, Greece. Crete island is known for its excellent climate. Moreover, Agia Galini has one of the best microclimates on Crete, mild throughout the year and the sun shines every day even in the middle of winter. With a wonderful and diverse surrounding natural environment, it is an ideal destination for an outdoorsy-type of vacation.
The village is built amphitheatrically into the surrounding hills near the mouth of the River Platys or Amarianos. The houses have a panoramic view over Messara bay and the Libyan Sea. The permanent population is about 600 people and in the summer season it usually increases to over 2000. Tourism, agriculture and fishing are the main occupations for the inhabitants. Agia Galini retains a balance between being a traditional fishing village and a modern touristic resort. While it offers all modern amenities to its visitors, they can still feel like they are visiting a Cretan village and not a standardised resort.
Placed conveniently in the middle of Crete (55 km from Rethymnon and about 68 km from Heraklion) Agia Galini is well suited to be the base for daily excursions. Near Agia Galini there are plenty of points of interest such archaeological sites (e.g Phaistos, Gortyna, Apodoulou), wonderful beaches (e.g Agios Georgios, Agios Pavlos, Preveli Palm beach, Triopetra), traditional villages (e.g Melambes, Apodoulou, Nithavri), religious sites (e.g Preveli Monastery, Odigitria Monastery), hiking starting points and many more.
