The small inhabited centre is built around

its typical Orthodox Church (dedicated ad Agios Nektarios) and is located

at the base of first hills that surround

the enchanting Bay of Palekastro, in a position that enjoys a pleasant panoramic view.

AgathiÓs is located at the coordinates +35░ 11' 45.732" North, +26░ 15' 51.407" East about one kilometre far from Palekastro, a small but well equipped city and an appreciated tourist destination with tavernes, restaurants, kafenii, groceries, a gasoline station, a bank with automatic teller, a pharmacy and medical guard.

 

About 1000 mt. is the distance to reach the sea and the first and nearest large sandy beach of Xiona, with its crystalline waters and extraordinary colours and its two tavernes that offer fresh fish.

AgathiÓs is also in good position to reach the beach of Kouremenos (a beautiful beach that is mostly attended and loved by windsurfers, since we should not forget, that these areas can be very windy and interested in the summer period by the

Agios Nektarios

traditional Greek Meltemi ) and is also centrally located in order to organize daily trips and excursions to the beaches of Itanos, Vai, Maridati, Karo¨mes with the Gorge of ChochlakiŔs, Kato Zakros and to Xerocampos that can be reached with about 40 minutes drive, direction Zakros.
