Chania Kolimbari beach

General information

Kolimbari Chania: Kolimbari beach is located 24 km west of Chania town, nestled between the flat cliffs of Kissamos peninsula. Totally untouched by tourism, the area is ideal for a peaceful hiking vacation.

A concrete pavement is set to the back of the pebble strip where you can walk by tasteful fish taverns and also one beautiful traditional café built of stone. The beach is clean with shallow blue waters, letting you play and sunbath with a magnificent view of the green cliffs.

At nights, have a romantic dinner at the taverns viewing the moonlit sea. A few resorts are located on the hills around Kolimbari with nice views of the beach and the old fishing jetty. War memorial reminds you of the defensive location of the harbor in the natural inlet, which made it a reserve military area of the past. Kolimbari can be reached by the frequent buses or a car from Chania, at 24 km east or Kastelli on the west.
