A holiday to Agioi Apostoli is a relaxing Greek getaway with all the trimmings. Good food, Blue Flag beaches and hidden hiking trails are the calling cards here.
Crete’s peaceful retreat
If you’re looking for a holiday spot that’s a little off the beaten track, then look no further than Agioi Apostoli. It’s small but perfectly formed, nestled between two bays of golden sand and a forest that’s thick with pine trees. This little village can boast about its secluded location, but it’s also only a 10-minute drive from the buzz of Chania Town.
A trio of beaches
This place was made for days spent lazing by the sea. You can even hop between beaches as there are three to choose from. They’re all dotted along the same stretch of coastline, so wandering from one stretch of sand to the next is a doddle. Plus, two of the beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status, so they’re not short on natural beauty.
Perfect for biking and hiking
Outdoor adventurers will be in their element here, as there are plenty of trails for both walking and cycling. Don your hiking boots and work your way through the forest trails from Golden Beach, and you’ll reach a fantastic viewing point over Chania. Agioi Apostoli is also ideal for road cycling, as the streets are wide and well-paved – take the coastal roads for the best backdrop.
Daytrips to Chania
The nearest big city, Chania Town, is only 10 minutes’ drive away. Its old town covers off ancient architecture, with Venetian mansions and Turkish hammams lining the cobbled streets. There’s also a bustling covered market that’s one of the best places to buy local food and handmade items. So, if you’re after a slice of authentic Greece, you’ll find it here. Then there’s the buzzing after-dark scene down by the harbour, where parties go on until the early hours.
