BEACHES

The Sand Villas are conveniently located just a few steps away from the sandy beach of Almyro, offering a serene escape with excellent amenities including beach bars, umbrellas, sunbeds, and water sports facilities.

Nearby, you will find several more beaches to explore. Ammoudara (6.4 km), Voulisma (13 km), and Karavostasi (12.6 km) are all within easy reach. If you're headed towards Elounda, don't miss the chance to visit the beautiful beaches of Kolokytha (15 km) and the Skisma area.

Voulisma, also known as Golden Beach, is a stunning stretch of white sand with turquoise waters.  The beach is well organized, although we would like to see it secluded. 

Karavostasi is one of the most quiet beaches of the area and it’s sandy but not organized. It is formed in the western part of the largest gulf of Istro and is ideal for relaxing moments. All around there are many tamarisk, carob and olive trees. In the same bay, east of Karavostasi you’ll see a big rock, on which there are the ruins of the Minoan settlement Priniatikos Pirgos.

Kolokytha is a small island just opposite the Peninsula of Spinalonga, 12km north of Agios Nikolaos and close to Elounda. Opposite the island there is the fantastic beach of Agios Loukas, mostly known as Kolokytha. To access the beach you should first follow a scenic route: From the town of Elounda, follow the road leading to the east, along the shore. You will pass the old salt pans of Elounda on your right hand. The road at this point runs along a narrow strip of land and heads to the Peninsula of Spinalonga (some call the Spinalonga Peninsula falsely as Kolokytha). On the route you will meet the small canal built by the French army in 1897 to connect the lagoon of Elounda to Mirabello Bay. There are a few windmills around, a picturesque bridge and boats in the canal, creating a unique landscape. Then the road turns to a dirt track and after 200-300m you have to turn right. Drive in this track and cross the peninsula of Spinalonga vertically, having stunning views of its rocky shores and the abandoned farms.
