Almyrida (alternative spellings Almirida, Almeirida) is a lovely fishing village and seaside resort to the east of Souda Bay on the Greek Island of Crete. It is found in the Apokoronos area of Crete which is renowned for its outstanding beauty.
Located around 25 km east of the town of Chania and easily accessed via Chania airport or Souda Bay port, Almirida beach resort is a great place for families, romantic couples and the young at heart who enjoy a beach holiday. Almyrida is a great place to stay as it is small enough to retain a quaint charm but big enough for a choice of places to eat and drink.
