Almyrida Beach Hotel

You’ll find the Almyrida Beach Hotel in a low-key location. The hotel does its best to mirror this, too, so it perfectly matches its surroundings. It’s only three storeys high and its walls are whitewashed to look traditionally Greek.

A skittle-shaped pool is framed by a tiled sun terrace with smart blue loungers. A neat palm garden provides some privacy for sunbathers. The main restaurant is a buffet number, but it offers a la carte lunches if you’re feeling peckish. There’s also another lunchtime eatery close by.

There is plenty to keep you entertained at the property, too, including a games room and a miniature bowling alley. And if you want to get out and explore, you can hire a bike.

Overview of Almyrida

A former fishing village, Almyrida is now firmly on the map with people looking for holidays to Crete thanks to the jaw-dropping views. It’s sandwiched between the sparking Aegean Sea and the snow-topped White Mountains, so every view and attraction here will vie for the attention of your camera lens.

The resort’s a heaven for adventurers, but if you’re more into relaxing and soaking up the sunshine, then you’ll also find three Blue Flag beaches within a short walk of the Almyrida Beach Hotel.

Plus, if you fancy something livelier, then you’ll also find Chania close by for sightseeing and lots of shopping opportunities.
