Board:Self Catering
(3 suns)

For us it was fine as we planned to use it as a base to do some walks in the north-west coastal area using the local buses. Perfectly adequate INKA supermarket about 5 mins away. The beach is not ideal for children as it is not very sandy - it's better a quarter to half a mile east of the town. The sea bed is mainly large pebbles and a bit steep. Not a lot of other activities available. Quite a few restaurants to choose from, many of them specialising in fish. Not a lot of shops. The location is very attractive, as you have the dramatic Rodopou peninsula on the western side.

Beaches

Kolymbari has a long section of pebble and sand beach which has been awarded the Blue Flag. The beach never gets too crowded so is perfect for a day of lazing around or paddling in the sea.

Nearby Attractions

The lively resort of Chania, Crete's second largest city, is only a 30 minute drive away and is well worth a visit. The old harbour is full of Venetian architecture and is overlooked by a fortress. The waterfront is packed with busy restaurants, bars and club and is ideal for those seeking to party into the night.

Quick Facts

Chania Airport is approximately 50 km away - transfer time about 45 mins-1 hour.
