Introducing Kolymbari holidays 2021

A pretty little fishing village at the foot of the wild and beautiful Rodopos peninsula, Kolymbari is the perfect spot for a holiday in the sunshine. This tranquil spot has preserved all its traditional charm, and you can relax on the beach, watch the fishing boats bob in the harbour, or explore the gorgeous green hills that stretch behind it. There is a good choice of cafés and tavernas, where you can tuck into tasty local specialities, and the vibrant resort of Platanias is only a 10-minute drive away if you want a great range of nightlife. Enchanting Chania is also within easy reach, and is packed with historic sights, boutiques and bars.

Top attractions

A charming fishing village, Kolymbari has become a pretty little seaside resort with a gorgeous setting on the northern coast of Crete. There’s a wonderful long shingle beach, and colourful boats bob in the old harbour. It’s a quiet and relaxed spot, but you’ll find a sprinkling of shops, and a decent choice of inviting cafés and restaurants. You can head into the rugged Rodopos peninsula to find authentic villages, the beautiful Gonia monastery and museum, and the wonderful little cove of Afrata. If you’re in the mood for some nightlife, head into lively Platanias, a 10-minute drive away, or head for Chania, the historic capital of Crete and now its charming second city.



Kolymbari beach is lovely and long, but it’s mostly shingle with a few patches of sand so it’s worth bringing beach shoes for the pebbles. It’s the first of a virtually unbroken string of beaches that extend all the way around the bay. There are lots of facilities, including sun beds and parasols for rent, and you’ll also find plenty of water sports to do. This area is particularly good for snorkelling and diving and there are a couple of local schools that run courses, rent out equipment and organise excursions to the best dive sites. There are lots of wonderful little coves on the Rodopos peninsula, including Afrata beach, a miniature charmer tucked into a sheltered bay.
