Kolimbari is a beautiful seaside village and is located 24 km west of the city of Chania. Its beach extends a long distance to Tavronitis, and has pebbles and gray sand, while part of it is organized with umbrellas and sunbeds. The beach is also a breeding ground for the Caretta Caretta turtle, as well as the whole wider area, so it is very likely that you will see parts of the beach fenced with special cages to protect the nests.

The village is famous for its fish taverns that are worth visiting, as well as for a walk in the alleys or to enjoy your coffee overlooking the harbor. Right after Kolimbari begins the Rodopou Peninsula, which is part of the Natura 2000 protection network and has landscapes of exceptional beauty. Just outside the village are the Orthodox Academy of Crete and the historic Monastery of Gonia which dates from the 17th century and has a rich collection of valuable icons.
