Kalives is a large, calm, seaside village located 18 km east of Chania which has preserved its Cretan character, an ideal place for relaxation, peace and quiet. It consists of a long road with houses opening directly on to it and the private alley behind. The town is built along the main road, and on the low south cliffs.
A lovely, long, sandy beach with blue flag runs alongside most of the town. It is full of tourists almost every day; an ideal place to relax and fill your batteries under the hot sun and the blue sky, next to the blue sea. Also a good place for those who enjoy walking in the typical cretan countryside with wild flowers. Ideal for quiet and peaceful family vacations.
Here there are many tavernas, cafes and restaurants with great views on the sea and a small harbour in the end of the village. In the village centre you can find whatever you may need as in bakeries, super-markets, green groceries with fresh fruit and vegetables, liquer and wine stores, pastry shops, 24 hour ATMs, petrol stations, pharmacies, doctor office, dry cleaners, car rentals, bars, taverns and restaurants.
