The seaside village Agia Galini boasts a beautiful sandy beach and a cozy village center with inviting little taverns and local shops. Also Plakias, a nearby coastal resort, has a beautiful beach, and the enchanting Vori takes pride in an excellent Museum of Cretan Ethnology. From here it is not far to the Messara plain and to Matala, also known as former hippie colony. Moni Preveli, Spili and Rethymnon also belong to the places of interest within a driving range.
Due to its central geographic location, Agia Galini is therefore an attractive base to culturally and leisurely explore south central Crete, its beautiful beaches, charming villages and interesting archaeological sites of Phaistos and Ghortys.
Petra Hotel is the right choice for visitors who are searching for a combination of charm, Greek authenticity, tranquility and a convenient location from which to explore Crete and enjoy a relaxing holiday.
