The Golden Sunset View of Almyrida Bay in Crete, Greece

Almyrida and Plaka are distinguished for their picturesque beauty and the magnificent view of the Aegean Sea on the island of Crete.  Almyrida, the seaside resort located east from the city of Chania is where the green hills of Apokoronas region meet the deep blue of the sea on the beach. The sandy beach with trees and its charming harbor with fishing boats and sea vessels create a wonderful landscape.

The deep blue waters of Almyrida bay turn gold as the sun sets.

You can enjoy sunbathing in one the local beaches,  obtain a car rental in Chania to tour the island’s coastline  and then return to taste delicious traditional food from the local taverns just meters away from the clean waters. After your relaxing day, you can take a 10 minute walk to Plaka and from there you can experience the stunning panoramic view of the bay with its golden Greek sunset. It may just be the place where to watch a sunset in Crete and the Greek Islands
