Agia Galini is a seaside settlement on the south coast of Crete. It is built on a hill overlooking the small harbor and the sea, and the houses are terraced built. Although not big, the settlement is tourist-friendly and has plenty of hotels, tavernas and shops. Down at the harbor there is a large municipal parking.
The village beach is well organized with facilities such as sunbeds, parasols and beach volley nets, and it has sand mixed with pebbles. The shoreline east and west of Agia Galini abounds in wild beaches, mostly pebbled and rocky, accessible by car or by foot. There are also organized boat trips to the beaches, departing from the village harbor, and around the nearby uninhabited islets of Paximadia.
