Welcome to Hotel Minos

Hotel Minos is near to the entrance of the village of Agia Galini, just a short walk from the harbour and about 100 metres from the beach.

The hotel is open all year round, including wintertime.

The village

This idyllic fishing village used to be regarded as something of a well-kept secret.
The Holy Peace that the name Agia Galini suggests is something you will certainly no longer find.
Agia Galini has become today a well-known and lively holiday destination on the south coast, about 50 miles from Heraklion, 75 miles from Chania and just over 35 miles from Rethymnon.
Nevertheless, Agia Galini has been able to preserve much of its charm and is surely one of the most attractive places in the south of Crete.
This picturesque seaside village invites you to stroll through the lanes, linger in one of the numerous cafes, or be pampered in one of the cozy tavernas.
The white-washed houses and hotels are clustered on hills surrounding the port, giving mostly uninterrupted views over the Lybian Sea.
Nearby there are sights and several quiet beaches, which can be easily reached on day trips.
There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Preveli, Agios Giorgos, Agio Farago and Paximadi.
Car and motorcycle distribution and two bank vending machines are available in the village. Within a few minutes, you can be at the beach or surrounded by nature. You'll very soon feel right at home here in Agia Galini!
