Almyrida is in the Apokoronas area, at the entrance to Souda Bay, about 2 km after Κalyves and 22 km from Chania.
Almyrida is a seaside resort extending about 2 kilometres along the coast. The resort itself is quite small and touristy, with many hotels and apartments for rent.
Like neighbouring Kalyves, Almyrida has been very built up in recent years, due to strong Northern European interest in buying land and houses there. On entering Almyrida you will see the coastal road running through the resort, parallel to the beach. The cafeterias and restaurants are clustered on the seaward side, while on the other side of the road there are many shops.
