Kalives is a seaside resort located 19km west of Chania, on the south coast of Souda Bay. This picturesque village is built on a fertile green valley, where several rivers flow. The village’s name (i.e. “Huts” in Greece) seems to come after the primitive huts that were built by farmers in their fields, to spend the summer nights. Near the village, on its east side, flow the rivers of Xidas and Mesopotamos. Moreover, the several springs inside the sea, combined with the rivers, decrease the sea temperature.
East and west of the river Xidas, two sandy beaches with shallow water are formed, open to north winds. Xidas and Maistrali beaches, as they are called respectively, are very well organized and all common tourist facilities and services are provided there. In the exit of Xidas river there is a beautiful small bridge which connects the two beaches. The picturesque harbour of Kalives is located next to Maistrali. Kalives is connected with regular bus services to Chania. In the area, you will find banks, post office, clinic, shops, etc.
