Almyrida is in the Apokoronas area, at the entrance to Souda Bay, about 2 km after Κalyves. Almyrida is a seaside resort extending about 2 kilometres along the coast. The resort itself is quite small and touristy, with many hotels and apartments for rent. Almyrida has been very built up in recent years, due to strong Northern European interest in buying land and houses there.
Almyrida is located at the exit of the Gulf of Souda, approximately 20 km from the city center of Chania. The region attracts many tourists and it has many cafes, taverns and hotels along the coast. The beach is arranged over two main coves in which you have several options between sandy and pebbly spots. The most popular feature of Almyrida is Karga, a rocky islet to which you can swim and is located 300 m off the coast. Almyrida is, among others, the perfect destination for families with children, as the water is shallow, there is plenty of quiet to relax and there are all sorts of amenities that will allow you to spend the day here.
If you choose to lodge in Almyrida, then you will be at the perfect starting point in order to explore the region of Apokoronas that features countless historical monuments, picturesque villages and places that somehow managed to remain unaltered over the ages. A short drive from Almyrida is Kalives, a small town with beautiful sandy beaches and popular taverns with delightful local specialties. While you are here, don't miss visiting the Lake of Kournas, the glass blowing factory in Kokkino Chorio, the ancient town and castle of Aptera and some of the many beautiful villages of the region.
Apokoronas is a municipality and a former province in Chania regional unit, north-west Crete, Greece. It is situated on the north coast of Crete, to the east of Chania itself. The seat of the municipality is the village Vryses. The municipality has an area of 315.478 km2 (121.807 sq mi).
The Apokoronas extends from the foothills of the White Mountains north to the coast, in a wide plain with rolling hills. To the east, Cape Drapanon rises above the plain and extends out into the Sea of Crete. The area is very green and fertile, unusual for rocky Crete. The Kiliaris river, known in antiquity as 'Pyknos', runs through the region. Robert Pashley suggested that the name 'Apokoronas' came from the ancient city of Ippokoronas or Ippokoronion, also cited by Strabo.
This city may have been located near modern Nipos, or on the site of the Venetian fortress, Castel Apicorono, on an outcrop between Kalyves and Almyrida.
The major towns of Apokoronas are Vamos, Armenoi and Vryses, with police, municipal and utility offices as well as taverns and large churches; Kalyves, Almyrida and Georgioupoli are the largest beach resorts. Tourism and agriculture are the major local industries, with much construction and quarrying to satisfy the demands of many foreigners eager to buy or rent properties in what used to be beautiful and traditional villages.
Gavalohori is among the more popular villages for foreign buyers, with a large amount of often low-quality building taking place.
