The Apokoronas area of North West Crete

Apokoronas - it is a difficult word for most non-Greeks!

It is pronounced ah-pok-O-ronass, with the emphasis on the middle O.

If you are familiar with the image of rowdy resorts such as Malia and Agios Nikolaos, think the opposite! This unique peninsular, 20 km east of Chania, is dotted with small fishing villages and is the most popular area for family holidays in Crete - yet it is not overcrowded with tourists. With a choice of safe and sandy beaches, close to family-owned tavernas and shops, everything you need is nearby for the perfect holiday.

Villa accommodation is in the traditional 'white' villages that dot the surrounding hillsides: Almirida, Kalyves, Plaka, Kokkino Chorio, Kefalas and Gavalochori are typical. Each is just a few minutes drive from the sea and beachside facilities, all have a choice of good restaurants and tavernas.
