Almyrida


A small, aspiring beach resort on Souda Bay


A lot of money has been invested in Almyrida in recent years, in order to create a pleasant holiday resort. There are good hotels, numerous rooms and apartments, and, above all, holiday homes from houses to villas. In addition, there is a range of eating places and shops, and the surrounding area is worth a visit. The two beaches offer delightful swimming, also for small children, and there is a sailing/windsurfing school.
Surroundings: the villages of Plaka, Kokkino Horio (ZORBA THE GREEK was filmed there), Drapanos, Kefalas, Xirosterni, Gavalohori, Aspro und Vamos are all worth a visit.
