Gorgeous Beaches nearby
Apokoronas and in fact much of the coast both to the east and to the west of Chania is studded with Blue Flag beaches – a designation that means not only pure waters but excellent upkeep and a commitment to the environment.
Children love Agious Apostolous. This sandy beach, just west of the town of Chania, is actually two braces in one, on either side of a sandbar. That means that whatever way the wind is blowing, you can enjoy a swim in calmer waters.
Chryssi Akti means golden beach. This is near Agious Apostolous. This larger beach is fully serviced with sunbeds and umbrellas and also water sports activities. The waters can be less calm than Agios Apostolous.
Stavros, about a 45-minute drive from Almyrida, is perhaps one of the best known beaches of the Akrotiri peninsula- the landmass just west of Apokoronas – is famous as some of “Zorba the Greek” was filmed here. It has become a more deluxe beach – and some say pricier. Beautiful though.
Seitani Limani s at the very tip of the Akrotiri peninsula, about a 50 minute drive from Almyrida. To reach the beach you need to hike down – the hike is not long but can be steep. But the view is incredible – Seitan Limani is a bay shaped like a lightning bolt. It’s like a beach on the moon.
One of the most famous beaches in the world is less than two hours’ drive from Almyrida. Elafonissi, in the southwest corner of the island, is known for its pink sands and beautiful waters. The open sea is rough and lovely, while the enclosed lagoon makes a gentler swimming spot. The island of Elafonissi covered with wildflowers and is a natural habitat of the Caretta Caretta sea Turtle and other creatures. This is protected as part of the Natura 2000 network.
People traveling with children might want to treat them to a day at “Limnoupolis” Chania’s waterpark with a view of the White Mountains. It’s just over half an hour’s drive.
Just outside of Chania is a fantastic gorge called Therisos. The drive through this gorge – not half an hour – is one of Crete’s loveliest and most dramatic. The drive ends in the Village of Therissos. This is an important historic village for Cretans. You can visit both the Museum of National Resistance, and the Historic folklife museum. Therissos is also famous for its meats. Families from Chania love to drive here for a fine meal of grilled goat chops, fresh fried potatoes, local cheeses, and garden-fresh salads. A drive and a meal here are a wonderful activity. Therissos Village is a little over 45 minutes from Almyrida.
Chania itself is not to be missed. This magnificent gem of city gets its charms from the Venetians, plus the Egyptians (the famous lighthouse), and the Ottomans (The Mosque of the Janissaries on the harbor), plus – first and foremost – the Cretans themselves. The alleys of the old town and Splangia are romantic and enchanting, with cascades of bougainvillea and jasmine covering the old houses. And you can look long and hard before you find a more picturesque waterfront and harbor anywhere in the world.Chania’s waterfront is lovely with its Venetian shipyards and marina to the east, and the Nautical museum and elegant Venetian facades to the west.
Chania is also great for culture. Some of the old Venetian shipyards are now dynamic exhibition spaces, and so is the former Mosque of the Janissaries. There is always something of cultural interest going on in Chania, especially in the summer months.
