During your stay in Megala Chorafia, you can indulge in swimming or sunbathing on the sandy shores of nearby Kalyves (3 km) and Almirida (8 km). Delight your taste buds with authentic Cretan cuisine at the traditional tavernas dotting the village’s first core, or stock up on essentials at the local mini-market.
Megala Chorafia is ideally situated for exploring the charming villages of the Apokoronas region. Enjoy a leisurely drink in the shade at a café in Stylos or marvel at the stunning frescoes adorning the walls of the church of St. Nicholas in Samonas. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Crete’s unique wildflowers or embark on scenic hikes through the small canyons of the Apokoronas region. With its proximity to the highway, Megala Chorafia offers convenient access to other captivating destinations across the island.
As for Aptera, it stands as a testament to the ancient glory of Crete, once a significant city-state revered for its strategic location and thriving commerce. From its earliest mention in Linear B tablets to its peak prosperity in the Hellenistic period, Aptera played a vital role in the maritime activities of the region, controlling trade routes through its ports in Kissamos and Minoa. Today, the ruins of Aptera serve as a captivating reminder of its storied past, offering visitors a glimpse into the island’s rich history and heritage.
