Agia Pelagia is a lovely seaside village on the north eastern side of Kythira, at a distance of 26 km from Chora. Until the 1980s, Agia Pelagia was the main port of the island, serving the ferries coming to Kythira from Neapolis Peloponnese. Today the port of Kythira has moved to Diakofti and Agia Pelagia remains a small fishing village with nice beaches in the region and controlled tourist development.
There are family Kythira hotels, fish taverns, cafeterias and shops in Agia Pelagia, providing to visitors all conveniences needed for their holidays. The long beach in front of Agia Pegalia is partly organized with sunbeds and umbrellas and ideal for families with kids. In close distance are nice, more secluded beaches, such as Firi Ammos, Lorenzou and Lagada.
