Agiofarago is a small pebble beach with crystal pure waters that nestles at the end of the gorge with the same name on the island of Crete. In translation from Greek, its name stands for the “Holy Gorge.” There are a lot of caves within its area. At the dawn of Christian religion, Agiofarago Beach was the place of residence for the hermit monks.
At present, the beach of Agiofarago is rarely visited by the tourists (in comparison to other Cretan beaches). You can book a comfortable transfer to Agiofarago Gorge on the website of Aktis.Taxi.
Agiofarago Beach is a marvelous place, blending warm sands and small pebbles. You can find it 82 kilometers from Heraklion. You can find this Paradise nook at the end of the gorge. Its remoteness provides a perfect environment for visitors searching for seclusion.
With the advent of Christianity, Agiofarago Beach turned into the center of asceticism on Crete. The length of the gorge is just 1.5 kilometers. In the 1-kilometer distance, you will see Saint Anthony Church.
It is interesting that the church was initially set on a small rock. However, in the XIV – V centuries, people reconstructed it. At present, you can see the building that remained untouched from that period.
Just a few steps away from the church, you can find a source of freshwater. It was found by the monks searching for a hideaway. If you plan to stay there all day long, you should note that it is the only source of water within the gorge and outside it.
Sea transport from Agia Galini and Kali Limenes, as well as road transfers and taxis, offer tourists Agiofarago Beach access. Just 6 kilometers from the gorge, you can see the monastery of Panagia Odigitria. It is a popular landmark with both local residents and tourists. The unpaved road provides links between the monastery and the gorge. However, if you want to get to the beach, you will need to take a walk between the rocks.
The best way to get to Agiofarago Beach is by booking a transfer. The choice results from the coverage of rented transport: on Crete, it does not cover the damages caused by the unpaved roads. The cost of transportation by city taxi is too high for a traveler. In contrast to mentioned transport, a transfer is easy to book online. Moreover, it does not need any advance payments.
