The small fishing village of Almyrida is now a delightful resort. As you approach from the western end of the village you will see an early basilica dating from the fifth century, with a wonderful mosaic floor. Almyrida has a lovely bay shaped harbour keeping the beach sheltered and safe, making it an ideal spot for those with young families, as it also benefits from a gentle sloping sandy beach entrance to the clear blue warm sea. All along the beach front are mostly family-run tavernas and cafes, to enjoy the great local food and scenery. There is a taxi rank, ATMs, bakery, clothes shops, mini markets, and chemist. There is a watersports base where you can learn and rent out windsurfing boards as well as kayaks and catamarans. There is also a dive centre. Also a 2 hr hour boat trip from the harbour which hugs the coastline and from the boat you can snorkel. The charm of Almyrida and its sleepy pace always leaves us with happy memories.
