Blue Key villa is located on a private hill in Agia Pelagia at the region of Heraklion in Crete. Agia Pelagia is a beach resort approximately 20km west of Heraklion on the west side of a long peninsula famous for its calm waters.
A variety of small coves with turquoise waters, either sandy or pebbled are excellent for swimming whilst restaurants, cafes, bars and water sports can fulfill any guest's requirements.
The main beach of the settlement is sandy, long and narrow and it is this one where hundreds of locals have fun daily in the beach bars and choose it for swimming.
This is also the beach where several ruins of the ancient port city Apollonia have been extracted. Walking along the cape of Souda (a different Souda to the ones of Chania or Plakias) passing by the shrine, after a few steps you will be above the most beautiful beach of Agia Pelagia, Fylakes.
Fylakes are small bays with turquoise waters sheltered by the tall rocks of Cape Souda. In order to access Fylakes you have to go down along the rocky coast that lead to the beach or swim or take a sea bicycle. We consider this small beach as one of the most beautiful on the North coast of Crete, so make sure not to miss it. Other nearby options includes Psaromoura, Mononaftis, Mades, Lygaria and Paliokastro beach.
Other facilities in Agia Pelagia include supermarkets, pharmacy, ATM, doctors, beach showers, local products markets, diving center, little boat excursions.
