Kythera | Agia Pelagia Village

Apart from the beach bearing the same name, Agia Pelagia is a popular tourist destination


The village of Agia Pelagia started developing in the 1980s, and for several years served as the island’s main harbor. Today, it is a village specifically geared towards tourism, with many good hotels, restaurants and shops. Along the seaside and close to many beaches, Agia Pelagia is one of the best choices for visitors. Recommended visits include the beaches of Lorentzo, Lagada, Firi Ammos (of Agia Pelagia), the Cave of Saint Sofia (one of three caves with the same name on the island) with an area of more than 120 m² full of stalactites and stalagmites, as well as the Cave of Venus in the small ravine of Galani. Arriving to the village from Potamos, just before entering it, there is a drinkable water source. Legend has it that those who drink from the spring will get married in Kythera. The stone windmill in the heart of the village is also worth a visit. Agia Pelagia is Kythera’s largest tourist hub, with reasonable prices but where large buildings, erected without any specific plans, adversely affect the charm of the village.
