The picturesque and enchanting village of Almyrida lies on the entrance of the Souda bay, with a view of the Lefka Ori (White Moyntains).

Not so long ago Almyrida was a fishing village and a weekend retreat for people visiting from Chania and the surrounding areas. Over the past few years Almyrida has slowly grown into a small resort with an expanding number of accommodation facilities and other tourism services. Despite this change, Almyrida has remained popular with Cretans and many still use it for their weekend breaks. Still Almyrida has managed to maintain a laid back, friendly atmosphere.

 The area has been just developed the last ten years, in a way that the traditional characteristics which attracts the most demanding guests, remained unspoilt.

Holidays in Almyrida are popular with families, couples and nature lovers and they are becoming more established with travel agencies and the atmosphere is still low key than many of the more well known resorts in Crete.

Almyrida offers a fabulous clean sandy beach with clear blue waters, entirely safe for all people., especially for families. The village offers almost anything visitors desire during their holidays – restaurants and taverns right on the sea, cafes, bars, grocers, and a large variety of other shops.
The village  is well known for its fresh fish and its delicious local food. Best time to visit Almyrida is in June and September in order to avoid the high-season.

The clean refreshing air and the green hills surrounding Almyrida are ideal places for walkers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Lyra is the major musical instrument in Crete
