Kolymbari

kolymbari_waterfront_1Kolymbari is a waterfront village located 23 km west of Chania, at the base of the Rodopou Peninsula with a long, pebble beach; it is appealing if you look for a quiet, natural, holiday destination. Earlier Kolymbari was well-known as a rural village with olive-trees and vineyards, today it is a developing touristic village.

Kolymbari has several quality tavernas serving seafood and traditional, rustic food. You can try these special dishes in one of the fish tavernas in the centre of the town or in the tavernas in the lovely waterfront next to the long, pebble beach. There are few cafes and bars for a coffee or drink, therefore you should visit other nearby villages (Platanias, Agia Marina) or the Chania''''s old town if you want more intense nightlife. In the village there is Post Office, OTE, and an ATM.

From Kolymbari it is very easy to visit the Gonia Monastery which is located 1 km to the north and celebrates greatly on the 15th of August. It was built during the 17th century in a wonderful place, it is surrounded by verdant vegetation and it offers a magnificent view. The Monastery has a fortress form, overlooking the bay in front of it; it was also a centre of resistance during the revolution of 1821. The Gonia Monastery hosts today an important collection of precious post-Byzantine icons, relics, and other rare religious treasures. The Orthodox Academy of Crete is located next to the Gonia Monastery.

Kolymbari is very near the Falasarna and Balos beaches which are regarded as two of the purest beaches of Crete and you should visit them both. The famous Elafonisi beach is also quite near; in 1 hour driving distance.
