Crete beaches are renowned for their natural beauty, and the beaches in Almyrida are no exception. Almyrida boasts three stunning beaches, all of which are Blue Flag winners. The two gently shelving golden sand beaches are the most popular, with crystal clear waters that are safe for children. The third, pebbled beach, is ideal for snorkelling. For sun-seekers, there are loungers and umbrellas to rent, while the more active can try a variety of fun-filled watersports including windsurfing, canoeing and diving.
Almyrida is small enough to remain quaint and charming, but large enough to offer a variety of cafes, bars, tavernas and shops, dotted throughout the village and along the beaches. If you’re looking for a more vibrant nightlife, Chania is located nearby and boasts an eclectic and fun nightlife. This one-time capital is reached by regular bus services and is well-worth a day trip with its charming mix of Turkish and Venetian architecture and crystal clear beaches.
