Day trip to Chania
This charming Cretan city is known for its colourful Venetian harbour and maze of Old Town streets. Whether you visit day or night, you’re bound to be wowed by it. It’s only 35 minutes away, so you could either drive, get a taxi or hop on the local bus which passes through Almyrida every hour.
Duo of beaches
The two sandy beaches in this quiet resort have both been awarded Blue Flags which mean they’re perfect spots for swimming and sunbathing. The water just offshore is clear and shallow, so it’s great if you’ve got little ones who love to paddle. Further out to sea, you might see windsurfers making the most of the waves.
