Almirida (also spelt Almirida or Almerida)
Almyrida offers two lovely sandy beaches along with a quaint fishing harbour. The beaches consist of a small beach to the west with a small outcrop (good for rock pools and snorkelling) and to the east a curved long beach, with warm shallow water, the safest for younger children.
Both of these beaches are sandy and slope gently into the clear turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea. There are restaurants and tavernas that sit along the beach front, they all offer an extensive range and variety of local cuisine and international menus. Most of these eateries have wonderful views along the beach and out to Souda bay.
There are spectacular sunsets to be seen in this part of Crete, as the sun dips, it spreads the last of its rays in hues of red and orange across Souda Bay. The two beaches offer sun-loungers with parasols (for a small fee), boat trips are also available from the little harbour.
There are water sports available, you can rent kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans, they can be found on the west beach of Almyrida. There are many shops, mini-markets, cafe/bars and tavernas along the main seafront.
