Almyrida Sands is a family residence in the middle of a garden with a wide view of the Cretan Sea, on one of the most beautiful islands of Greece. It is located in the fishing village of Almyrida, at a walking distance of about 100 meters from the beach.
Almyrida is at the entrance of Souda Bay in the region of Apokoronas, 2 km from Kalives, 5 km from Vamos and 22 km from the city center of Chania.
The region has been named “Finikia” and it reminds us of the historical interest of the distant Phoenician colony.
Many facts on the island show us periods of occupation, such as during the Greek-Roman period with evidence of graves and mosaics adjoining a 5th century church.
Almyrida was also part of the scene of the final battle against the Ottomans in 1866.
The area is renowned for the beauty and the safety of its crystal clear beaches, sheltered by hills covered with olive trees and magnificent views of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains).
The sea is shallow, ideal for families with toddlers. You will find that Almyrida has two sandy beaches with lifeguards, with sun-beds and umbrellas.
Right at the entrance, there is a pebbled beach as well.
The village offers a variety of traditional taverns (Cretan cuisine) bars, shops of regional and artisanal products.
Our Almyrida Sands resort offers five independent apartments and a studio with views of the Cretan Sea or the large garden, tastefully designed by Yannis the owner.
All studios and apartments at Almyrida Sands have a private garden or terrace.
Of course they all have air conditioning, satellite TV and wifi.
The apartments have a fully equipped kitchen and living room.
Almyrida is ideal for those who want to enjoy the sea in peace, away from the bustle of the big tourist resorts.
