Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in Almirida, Crete your home away from home

Almirida started out as a small fishing village on the east of Souda Bay in Crete. Over the years, the combination of lovely beaches, important historical sites and charming atmosphere of the village started to attract visitors, and Almirida has never looked back. In the last few years, holiday accommodation in Almirida has increased, providing more options for your stay. This development has not altered the atmosphere though, meaning the famously relaxing resort is still an ideal place to escape to.

Things to do on holiday in Almirida, Crete

Archaeologists have discovered a range of 5th century tombs from the ancient Foinikes era. The wonderful mosaics which adorn the entrances to the tombs have been wonderfully preserved, and are well worth visiting from any of the self catering accommodation in Almirida. As with much of Crete, Almirida has a wealth of natural treasures too. The short walks to the Gorge of St Nikolas and the Diktamo Gorge as well as the 250 caves which are scattered along the coast are magnificent places to explore.

Walking from an Almirida apartment or villa is a hugely rewarding activity as there is just so much to see. Remnants of ancient walls, WWII tunnels and islets covered in migratory bird species are your reward for your efforts, especially if you head around the Bay of Almirida. The woodland behind the village is some of the only unspoilt woodland in Crete, and for much of the year, the only sounds to be heard there are the footsteps of fellow walkers or the soft song of birds. Mountain bikes can also be hired from vendors in the village, so you can set out into the hills at a more vigorous pace.

The thin, sandy beach which lines the whole of the bay is not only the focal point for visitors and locals during the day. In the evenings, the tavernas, cafes, bars and shops are the main social centres in the village, where people congregate to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and catch up with friends. The beach is safe for children, as it slopes gently into the warm waters of the Mediterranean. There is also a windsurfing school for those who would like to try their hand.

Places to holiday in Almirida, Crete

Chania is the largest town in the Almirida area, and if you are staying in a self catering holiday rental in Almirida, you will almost certainly do much of your shopping in Chania. It is a very beautiful town, whose original centre is home to a disproportionate number of excellent historical monuments and fascinating buildings spanning the whole of Crete’s history.

Weather in Almirida, Crete

Flights to Almirida, Crete

The proximity of Chania International Airport (CHQ) is a real advantage of taking holiday accommodation in Almirida. Located just a few miles down the road, you can be settling into an apartment in Almirida within just a few hours of leaving home. Direct flights to Chania are easy to find during the summer, but in the winter months, you may be routed through Athens.

Wonderful apartment, clean and perfectly adequate

5 of 5
Fantastic time in Almyrida, the apartment is clean, great facilities, the pool is lovely and it really is a 5 minute walk to a wonderful beach, especially the really sandy part. The restaurant's are wonderful and there are so many for such a small unspoilt village. The people are all very friendly and the food is excellent and Almyrida is only 25 mins from the airport, great for couples and families.

great location and nice host

5 of 5
Panos and his wife welcomed us late in the evening very friendly. He explained everything and arranged an extra bed for our baby. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, equipped with all things we needed. The terrace is fantastic; it is located on the roof upstairs - we didn't expect this with our 2 kids, but no real problem. Surrounding is nice and friendly, too. Panos, many thanks again and good luck for the olive harvest. Hopefully we see you again next year!
