The West Crete holidays guide
Location of Almirida and Plaka


Almirida is a small village with a pleasant shallow beach located in the bay of Souda. Further up the hill (and 10 minutes on foot from the beach), the village of Plaka is also popular because it is very quiet with superb views of the bay of Souda and the White Mountains.

 Getting there

Limited public transport so it is best to have your own car if you want to move around. Almirida is located 25 km from Hania with buses 2 or 3 times a day only.


Almirida is still pretty laid back although tourism has become well developed.


New hotels have been built in the past few years so there is plenty to choose from. Find accommodation in Almirida and Plaka


A few good restaurants.


Basic. You will find more in Kalives, 4 km away.


A couple of bars.


A pleasant sandy beach with shallow water. The beach is small and can easily feel crowded.
