Crete romantic travel: beaches to discover

In your luxury romantic travel in Crete, the great beaches of Kalives and Almirida to the east of Chania city are an ideal place to visit.

There are two beaches to the east of Chania city that are perfect for a short “escape” from the travel schedule, during your romantic travel in Crete.

These two beaches, in a distance of about 20 kilometres from Chania city, are the ones in Kalives and Almirida. Both of these beaches are located in the south side of the picturesque Souda Bay, and have the luxury to be into a stunning natural environment. Hence, it comes to no surprise that they are both popular with the romantic travellers in Crete and the locals alike.

Kalives beach – a highlight of your romantic travel to Crete and Chania

Kalives beach is near the village with the same name. You can travel to Kalives by a rented car or by using the frequent local bus service.

There are two distinct beaches in Kalives. The first, the eastern one, is a beach with fine sand located inside the village. The beach is not bad for romantic travellers, but it is also family friendly, as it is safe for children and has good amenities, like sun beds and parasols

But the really attractive beach for romantic couples travelling in Crete is the second one, laying a couple of kilometres west of the village. This fine sandy beach is quieter, and you can still enjoy the luxury of a variety of amenities here, like sun beds, parasols, a couple of taverns and a café.

A very good thing about this second beach are the big pine trees growing literally inside the sand, which provide ample – and natural – shade to the travellers during the hot summer months.

Almirida – a beach you will find hard to forget after your luxury romantic travel to Chania, Crete

The village of Almirida is located in a superb spot: inside a protected cove at the southern side of Souda Bay. In Almirida there are three distinct beaches.

The first beach is in the centre of the village and is the most organized one. As the water in Almirida is shallow and safe for children, this beach is popular with families with children.

Possibly the best beach in Almirida for romantic travellers is the second one, which is in a small distance from the centre of the village. This second beach is also sandy and with crystal-clear water, like the first one, but the romantic couples are generally the rule here – and not the exception.

In Almirida there is also a third, secluded beach. This beach is perfect for couples that want privacy in their luxury romantic travel in Crete and Chania. This third beach has pebbles, and it is also good for snorkelling.

Kalives and Almirida have several fine beaches to the east of Chania city, with crystal clear water and a great natural environment. Romantic travellers in Crete will find most of them simply irresistible.

If you can, stay on the beach until late in the afternoon. The sunset in Kalives and Almyrida is marvellous, as the sun falls behind the magnificent Souda Bay. This magical sunset in Kalives and Almirida will probably be one of the most beautiful, long-remembered experiences from your luxury romantic travel in Crete and Chania.
