Cretan Feast at Agapi Beach Resort in Crete

Explore Crete’s rich legacy and experience the soul of this special island with one of the many activities and events in Crete available at Agapi Beach Resort. Learn how to prepare authentic Greek dishes – gastronomic wonders that are as healthy as they are flavorful. Witness the magic of our evening folklore performances and live shows, or pair your cocktail with music at the main bar, where we host piano nights twice a week. And let us lead you on an eco-tour of the area, as we share the tenets of our “green” philosophy with you.  We hope you’ll join us for weekly events in celebration of the resort’s 40th anniversary as well.
