In the northeastward of the prefecture of Chania, visitor meets one of the five boroughs of the prefecture, the borough of Apokoronas. Apokoronas has an extend of 313 sq kilometers (98 flat, 103 semi mountainous, 112 mountainous) and it is constituted by 5 municipalities. The province of Apokoronas numbers 34 traditional villages and 12.623 residents (inventory 2001)
The geographic location of Apokoronas could be characterized as very important cause it constitutes as the “bridge ” of Chania with the rest of Crete's prefectures.
It's bigger department is found covered by wild as much as meek vegetation and is stretched out from the foothill of White mountains up until the gulf of Souda northwesterly and the gulf of Georgioupolis northeasterly.
Apokoronas has two capes, one of Souda and one of Drapanos, five rivers (Koiliaris, Xydias, Vrissanos or Mpoutakas, Almiros, Delfinas) and a single lake (the lake of Kournas) which is also the unique in Crete.

In abrupt cliffs, visitor meets small picturesque villages, which impress with their authentic traditional color and elect Crete's soul greatness while coastal touristic villages with organized beaches will offer the comforts of modern age.
Important Gorges, like the ones of Diktamos (begins from Katoxori Keramion and leads up at Stilos), the one of saint nikolas-kanali (between ramnis and maxairon) and the one of Asi gonias, they generously offer the natural beauty of Crete.
Caverns (213 have been recorded) with historical and environmental value, steep beaches, Byzantine churches, are found there in order to satisfy taste and requirements of all tourists, who are sure that they will leave this place with a sweet recollection and a promise that they will return as soon as possible.
In the antiquity, the word Apokoronas is not reported at all apart from the names of the cities within the province. As a borough is being referred at the era of Crete's Venice domination, without though knowing the limits of the province at that time. Several toponymies have been referred such as: "Apikonna", Bicorna and Bicorno. The name "Hippokoronion" from Cornelius took place for the venetian fortress Bicorna that was found at the coastal hill, easterly from Kalives. It's also credited that the name was emanated from the words “apo” and “korona”, because the province was a meticulous possession of the crown from Byzantine emperors.
There are elements, which prove that in Apokoronas, had human presence, since the Neolithic age, namely 8-6.000 years B.C. Archeological relic have been found at Apokoronas and in between and also in Samonas and Stilos that a settlement of the same period have been found. Beneath Aptera Minoan burials with many vessels also have been excavated, near Stilos, a magnificent vaulted burial, the ruins of a ceramic kiln and several different relic of the same period and other appreciable discoveries also take place.
Hardly 7,5 kilometers from Almyrida on the way to Chania, the visitor meets Aptera which have a bird's eye view of the gulf of Souda, that it shouldn't be missed .
Aptera were founded the 7 century BC, they were inhabited until the Byzantine years while they're constituted as one of the more important cities of ancient Crete. They repeatedly played a decisive role in history of the island as well as in its internal and external policy.
The name was emanated from the king - founder Apterous as a motive of the fight that took place between the monsoons and Sirens, where the Sirens conquered and their feathers flew away, than they became apterai and leykai, fall in the sea and thus the islands Leykai were created on the gulf of Souda.
At Aptera the visitor can see the walls of the ancient city that are still extanded in a length of roughly four kilometers, a small temple from the beginnings of the 1st century BC (probably dedicated to Goddess Dimitra), a small Roman theatre with cornices carved on rock, and the huge impressive vaulted reservoirs from the period of Roman domination. There also exists the Monastery of Saint John the theologian. Southernly from the abbey flooring from a Christian temple of the 7th or the 8th century a.C has been revealed and underneath it, Christian graves.
Aptera was autonomous through the whole Greek period (6th-4th century B.C) ??? and a lot of coins have been monetized. Has also send help to the Spartans at the 2nd Messenian war (668 B.C) while it was an ally of Knossos during the civilian Cretan war. (220 B.C)
Near the antiquities two fortresses of exceptional historical interest that were manufactured during the period of Ottoman domination are being saved, the fortress of Palaiokastro which have been build from Ottomans for causation of the insurgence of 1866 which constitutes a representative sample of frourian architectural of the 19th century, as well as the Idzedin fortress at Kalami which was buid at 1872 from Reouf pasha. The Idzetin fortress constituted as the Mainer defensive work of the harbor, while at the later years was used mainly as a political detainee's prison who with their resistance fought for their democratic ideas.
