Kalyves is a picturesque village and seaside resort 19km from Chania City. The village consists of two settlements, the medieval part which is located west of the square, and the new settlement to the east and surrounding hills. The village is built in one of the many fertile green valleys where the rivers of Xidas and Mesopotamos flow. The freshwater springs that emerge from the seabed combined with the rivers, keep the seawater fresh and cool .
The beach is divided by the river Xidas and stretches to the small picturesque harbour. To each side of the river there are two sandy beaches with shallow water. At the mouth of the river there is a lovely wooden bridge connecting the two beaches. The beaches are well organised with sun beds and umbrellas that belong to the cafes and tavernas along the beach. If it’s natural shade you’re looking for, you’ll find it under the trees that line the side of the beach. Kalyves has everything you could need with banks, post office, health services, shops and a regular bus services to Chania.
Is very much a resort and yet still an agricultural market centre. It is a working village, where irrespective of tourism, village life goes on. There are two main beaches; the quieter one at the western end of the village (opposite the SYNKA supermarket) and the busier one at the harbour end. On foot it is nice to explore the quaint ‘old’ part, with its narrow lanes leading off from opposite the large church in the square. Another place to explore is Koumos (which is the name for the old, round, stone shepherd huts) This is one man’s delightful folly; where you can marvel at the stone statues and mosaics and wood creations. Kalyves has a good selection of shops, tavernas, chemists and a Medical Centre (both doctors speak English). Banks, Post Office and markets.
