Beaches in the area of Agia Pelagia

The central beach of Agia Pelagia.  It is sandy, with umbrellas and beach chairs, plus water sports and diving centers, which offer beginners' courses.  The bay deepens relatively fast, but in the middle of the beach there is a long and narrow rocky plate, which provides a small area safe for children.  There is a good selection of taverns and cafeterias along the beachfront.

The Ligaria beach, east of Agia Pelagia.  This one is also sandy, with umbrellas and several tavernas.  The bay is smaller, but it is also protected from the north winds, and rent-rooms are available.

Mononaftis beach, west of Agia Pelagia.  This is a lovely small cove with umbrellas, restaurants and hotels, but it is not protected from the north winds.  The beach is beautiful with sand and pebbles, but, here too, the water deepens rapidly.  The taverns, which surround the beach, create a claustrophobic sensation, which is soon forgotten as you immerse yourself in the pleasurably cool waters.
