Children can play safely, you will also see kitesurfers taking advantage of the breeze to ride the waves of the Sea of Crete at the apex of Almiros Bay. There’s enough room for beach volleyball and other beach activities, as well as water sports and fun including scuba diving. The Almiros River separates the main beach from Kalivaki Beach – a great spot for snorkeling, since the waters a clean and clear, and the marine life is abundant.
