Kolimvari (or Kolimbari) is a beautiful coastal town located 23 km west of Chania on the top of the Cape Spatha. The area of Kolimvari combines green hillsides with olive trees and vineyards, the lovely long beach and monuments that surround it.
In front of the town you will find the long sandy beach of Kolymvari. It is organized and extends along several kilometers. The waters are deep and wavy, just like all the beaches of the northern Crete.
Near the coast in Kolimvari visitors can find a wide variety of dining, entertainment accommodation infrastructure (from five star hotels to rooms to let). A concrete path with pebbles leads to traditional taverns and cafes that are stone made.
If you prefer a quiet beach to relax, you can be isolated at one of the bays of the Monastery of Odigitrias, in the northwest part of Kolymvari.
Kolimvari is a village well known for the Orthodox Academy of Crete and the Gonia Monastery dating from 1662.
From the port of the village you can take the boat and visit the peninsula Rodopou with the imposing cliffs and the small quiet bays.
