Almyrida beach

Almyrida beach

 

Located in the bay of Souda, Almyrida is a small resort with a lovely sandy beach and a background of green hills and mountains. Because of its increasing popularity a few slightly larger hotels have been built in recent years so it has become fairly busy during the summer season.

 

Type of beach: sandy beach

Size of beach: the main beach is a little over 200 m long. There is a small sandy beach further to the West as well as another 120 m long beach further to the West (rough sand).

How busy: it's a narrrow beach and there are quite a few hotels in Almyrida so the beach can get (and feel) very busy.

Winds: :Almyrida is located well inside the Souda Bay so it is well protected from wind and waves unless you get a strong North wind.

Facilities

Sunbeds and umbrellas, a few cabins to change, a few showers, life guard

Safe for children: yes . The water is shallow and generally not many waves.

Car parking: free parking along the beach
