The ocean cove of Kouloura in Chalepa, Chania Crete.

Kouloura is a naturally formed cove in the district of Chalepa within the city of Chania.

Known by the residents of the area and a handful of tourists during the Summer months. Kouloura is not a sandy beach so if that’s what you are looking for then the nearest beach is in Koum Kapi. On the other hand, if you are willing to jump off the cement dock or one of the rocks into the clear water, then you have arrived at the right place.

The water is deep enough to safely dive head first if you want. Or just slowly walk in from the lower end of the cove. There is even a shower to rinse off and a changing room to get in and out of your swimsuit. Fun to swim in, and very relaxing to watch the waves break onto the rocks on the front end of the cove.

Kouloura is a 15min walk from Little Mimosa and has parking space if you want to drive there.
