Where we are

Mer de Crète Resort is located on the top of the Agia Pelagia bay, overlooking the Cretan Sea. Agia Pelagia is a seaside fishing village built in the center of a picturesque amphitheatric bay. It is located on the north coast of Crete at 23 km northwest from Heraklion, capital city of the island of Crete, at a distance 25 km from the international airport of Heraklion and 23 km from the ferry port (approximately 30 minutes by car).

Agia Pelagia takes its name from the homonymous church, in the Monastery of the Sebbathians, ruins of which are found at a distance of 1 km west of the village. During the last decades years, the resort has attracted increased attention as its sandy beaches are well-known to many visitors who find here all kinds of services, especially for family vacation.

The village offers a bustling life during summer time, with traditional fish taverns, cafés, beach bars, local shops and boutiques, which will invite you to exciting short walks through the little streets. The village provides a central parking space for immediate access to the beach.

Moreover, Mer de Crète Resort is located less than 10 minutes by car from the beautiful beaches of Psaromoura, Mononaftis, and the village of Fodele, the home village of the world-renowned painter El Greco. Mer de Crète Resort is conveniently located close to the Northern Cretan Highway (“BOAK”), which allows for the fastest route to the cities of Heraklion, Rethymno and Chania.
