Afrata - West Crete

  • Crete West Crete
The Mountain Village Afrata is located in western Crete at the Rodhopou-Peninsula. It is a small traditional mountain village with a tavern. Approximately 7 km from the larger coastal town kolimbari. To Chania Town 30.4 Km approximately 38 minutes’ drive. Below the village is a path that leads to the pebble beach.This rocky inlet is popular with the locals. Because this is the most beautiful adventure for fishing and snorkeling!
Diving Clubs come from Chania town to dive here, it is also a good area for snorkeling. Afrata is still completely untapped from tourism. This makes the charm for many individuals. At this bay there is a small tavern, which also gives a few deck chairs. From the Village kolimbari You can walk to Afrata.
The trail (not on the coast road) to Afrata over the village Astratigos is an exciting trail on the Rodhopou Peninsula. It is not so easy to find the way to Astratigos from kolimbari.
You have to ask the locals because it is hard to find and is not signed. Our young individualists love this hiking tour from kolimbari-to Afrata. It is not too heavy, just 2 hours (round trip 4 hours) great vantage points and not known at all. You can walk back through the same path or as a circular walk along the coastal road back. The coastal road is a very quiet road and offers over the whole length, unrestricted panoramic views of the spectacular collection of massive cliffs ! Snorkelers and scuba divers are rewarded with a fantastic under water world.
