Ligaria is a small resort on the north coast of Crete, twelve miles from the principal town, Heraklion. It is a charming village originally designed as a summer retreat for the capital's residents and because of this it is very different from the usual purpose built resort. An authentic, traditional atmosphere pervades this relaxed town. It offers a perfect antidote to the hurly-burly of modern life. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat with a guarantee of sunshine and water lapping at your feet, a low cost Ligaria holiday would certainly fit the bill. The village spreads up the hill from the bay and has a rather steep access to the sand and shingle beach. The warm, shallow waters of the bay are very inviting and offer safe conditions for youngsters. Crete is a lovely island and Ligaria lies in a particularly beautiful area. In order to fully appreciate the scenery and to make the most of your visit, car hire is recommended.
Hotels and apartments provide goood accommodation with all modern amenities, and friendly staff give attentive service. When choosing board basis, take a look at the discounted all-inclusive holidays as they may be cheaper than you think. They can offer very good value especially when travelling with children. The additional costs of food, snacks, drinks etc can be substantial. There are sufficient restaurants, tavernas and bars providing a choice of menu that caters for all tastes. If you would like an even wider choice, pop around the bay to Agia Pelagia. If you are new to the flavours of Greece, order Meze, the equivalent of Spanish tapas, and you'll receive a selection of dishes, ideal for tasting. Nightlife in the resort is low key. When it comes to shopping, Ligaria has little more than minimarkets and a few small gift shops. While they are sufficient for holiday essentials, for greater variety, visit Agia Pelagia.

Several low cost airlines fly direct from regional airports to Crete. You can check on the Cheeky Trip website to see if there are flights from your own local airport.
