Kolymbari Holidays

A chilled-out Cretan resort

Kolymbari holidays offer a rather wonderful taste of typical Cretan life. Set at the foot of the Rodopos peninsula, Kolymbari is a dinky traditional village nestled between olive tree groves and a pebble beach fringed by sparkling waters. Handily, it’s just a few kilometres from the city of Chania, so easy to get to. Time here is measured by the sea and sun – and you can spend hours just sunbathing on the beach and swimming. Holidays to Kolymbari will suit families and couples looking for peace and quiet in an easygoing resort.

While the nightlife isn’t lively, there are a couple of laid-back local cafés that serve raki and wine, and there’s truly delicious food at the local taverns. When you fancy some adventure, head on walks through the hills or take a boat trip and snorkel, swim and beach-hop your way along the coast.
