The small fishing village of Almyrida is now a delightful beach resort. As you approach from the western end of the village you will see an early basilica dating from the fifth century, with a wonderful mosaic floor. Almyrida has a lovely bay shaped harbour keeping the beach sheltered and safe, making it an ideal spot for those with young families. It also benefits from a gentle sloping sandy beach entrance to the clear blue sea. All along the beach front are mostly family-run tavernas and cafes, to enjoy the great local food and scenery. There is a taxi rank, ATMs, bakery, clothes shops, mini markets and chemist. There is a water sports base where you can learn and rent out windsurfing boards as well as kayaks and catamarans. There is also a PADI certified scuba diving center. For mini adventures there is a 2 hour boat trip which starts from the harbor following the coastline and takes you to beautiful snorkeling spots. In front of the bay lays the little island of Karga, which is a natural reserve for many bird species.
