Kolymbari offers the natural splendour of Greece in a relaxed island atmosphere. Situated on Crete’s northwest coast, the laid-back fishing village of Kolymbari is surrounded by mesmerising turquoise seas glittering under clear blue skies. The resort is hidden away in the lush surroundings of olive trees, away from the glitzy bars and clubs. Delightfully cosy and beautiful taverns add to the attraction of a destination that is nestled between the sea and the cliffs. Kolymbari is a wonderful getaway for those who want to enjoy luxury holidays by a beach that is not overcrowded with tourists. The Blue Flag beach is a beauty etched in pebble and sand. Visitors wishing to enjoy the hustle and bustle of clubs and pubs are only half an hour’s drive from Chania.
Things to do
Kolymbari is a popular destination for family holidays. There are some wonderful trails for visitors who wish to go hiking and a 600-foot walk down to the picturesque village of Afrata. The walk also gives visitors the opportunity to witness pretty coastal views and pinewoods. The resort also offers a great selection of fine food and good wine.
Visiting and exploring Chania is an activity that not many tourists can resist. The ancient town is crammed full of Venetian and Gothic alleyways, while the harbour, set against the backdrop of a fortress, is a sight to behold. Chania’s appeal is further boosted by the plethora of waterfront fish restaurants offering local cuisine and Greek hospitality, but the real draw is the range of bars and night clubs that add extra life to the location.
A good mix of shops, restaurants and hotels make Kolymbari an ideal holiday spot.
