Almyrida is located 23km east of Chania city, on the south shores of Souda Bay and close to the Cape Drapanos.
It is a very quiet resort with all basic amenities and superb sea. The unspoiled countryside and the lush oil groves around Almyrida are ideal for hiking and exploration. Just 1km to the east there is the picturesque village of Plaka, which is the largest village in the region.
Taverns on the beach are famous for fresh fish and delicious traditional Cretan food. There are regular bus services and taxis (for both Plaka and Almirida) to/from the city of Chania. Opposite the beach is the islet of Karga, which ideal for excursions and fishing. The island is a natural habitat for many birds. Moreover, on the island, there are still signs of the ancient walls of the Phoenicians and the cavernous shelters that were built during the Second World War by the Germans (the wider area of Cape Drapanos is full of German artilleries and shelters from the WW2).
