An all-inclusive Crete stay at a welcoming hotel in the sleepy fishing village of Kalyves, with direct access to a lovely Blue Flag beach on the island's northern coast

The scenic island of Crete has a diverse landscape of beautiful golden beaches and striking rocky peaks overlooking the enchanting Aegean Sea; all of which can be enjoyed from the small fishing village of Kalyves on the island’s northern shoreline. Relax and unwind in this picturesque setting where culture and history are set against the magnificent backdrop of the ethereal White Mountains.

Kalyves Beach Hotel occupies an enviable position, with direct access to a long stretch of sandy Blue Flag beach. Inside, tiled flooring, wicker-style furniture, arched doorways and cool alcoves reiterate a Mediterranean vibe, and guests can enjoy indoor swimming, a mini-spa with whirlpool bath and sauna, an intimate outdoor pool area lined with sunbeds, plus drinking and dining options looking out to the sea or the Xydas river.

The large fishing village of Kalyves brims with Cretan character and its terracotta buildings and domed monuments pepper charming local walks. Nearby towns house historic attractions and stunning trails and walks in equal measure. Be sure to visit the Ancient Aptera and the old town of Chania with its amazing Venetian Harbor, or set out on a horse-riding expedition, a sailing trip or a diving excursion to Elephant's Cave.
