Kalyves is a charming and picturesque seaside village located at the edge of Souda Bay in Chania, Crete and known for its magnificent beach.
Within walking distance from our hotel, Kalyves Beach boasts 500 meters plus of clean sand and clear, calm, blue/green, shallow waters, making it ideal for families with young children. The various restaurants on the beach offer a variety of menus including local specialty dishes and fresh seafood. Refreshments by the beach are available from sunrise to sunset and beyond.
Kalyves lies about 20 km east of Chania. It is on the coast at the entrance of Souda Bay. It essentially consists of one long road, with houses opening directly on to it, with the occasional alley behind. The town is bound on one side by the sea and the other by low hills.
The centre is dominated by a fine church with a square in front which nevertheless can be easily overlooked. Kalyves' saint is Ag.Paraskevi («Saint Friday») and the saint's day, carnival and other festivals are popular celebrations. On Kastelli Hill, east of the town, are the remains of the fortified settlement Castello Apicorono, identified by some scholars as the site of ancient Ippokoronion, which is thought to have given the Apokoronas region its name. In classical and Byzantine times, Kalives is the likely site of Kissamos, one of the ancient city of Aptera's two harbours.
