Sitting pretty on the northwest coast of Crete, Greece, Kolymbari is a destination full of majestically natural beauty and charm, as well as a pristine Blue Flag beach which all adds up to make it one of the most enchanting tourist destinations, not only on Crete, but in all of Greece.
To go along with its natural beauty and incredible cliffs that tower over one side of the town, and the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea on the other side, as well as beautiful traditional fishing spots dotted everywhere in between, Kolymbari is also home to some of the finest restaurants and quaint taverns serving fresh, incredible seafood, and a lot of them have wonderful views of the sea, too.
The beach in Kolymbari is the ideal location for those looking to soak in some of the warm Mediterranean sun. Because the area is not too heavily populated by tourists (yet) it is the perfect place for grabbing a nice little private section of soft, sandy beach and set up your beach blanket and umbrella. The beach is family-friendly and perfect for kids, but be warned; the water is shallow for a bit, but becomes deep quite quickly, so keep and eye on your smaller ones! The beach is also the perfect spot for snorkelling and other wonderful water sports, as well.
As amazing as a sandy beach and clear, turquoise water is, you may not want to spend your entire vacation lounging around on the beach the entire time. Well, do not fret, Kolymbari has you covered, because it is a hiker's Heaven. Whether you are an experienced hiker, or a novice looking for a little exercise while on vacation (or just some amazing scenery for your Instagram or Snapchat.) There are many clear and defined trails for those novice hikers, however, the hardcore hikers will take a vast amount of joy out of the more challenging winding trails that rolls 600 feet up towards the small village of Afrata. When you make it to the village you may be hurting, but it will not be all for nothing as you will be rewarded with some of the most beautiful and picturesque scenery you could imagine.
If you are looking for a nice day trip to go on while staying in Kolymbari you will want to take the half-hour drive (or bus ride) to the island's second biggest city, Chania. This historic city is a vibrant labyrinth of busy markets, museums, restaurants and shops just waiting to be explored. It is truly perfect for a lovely day trip.
When it comes the deciding what time of the year is best for booking your trip to Kolymbari you really do not have a lot of work to do. There is a really simple answer to the question of when should you book a trip, and the answer is: Any time! Truly, any time of the year is a great time to visit Kolymbari thanks to the wonderful Mediterranean climate. During the summer months the weather is usually dry with temperatures reaching upwards of 30 degrees, and come the fall the temperature remains very nice as it usually hovers around the mid-20s.
