One of the best beaches in Paleochora, recommended for everyone who wants to enjoy clear water for swimming in south Crete. Cold though !!

A nice walk from town, or you can drive much of the way by car. We saw wild goats in the steep hills along the way. Mostly level ground; not difficult, and well-marked.

Visited here in mid October. Beach is shingle and sand. Naturist section at eastern end. Beach very clean. It's about 2km east of Paleochora along an unmade but good track. There are a few tavernas near the beach.

Amazing place to relax by the sea. Water is extremely clear so it is great to enjoy underwater. Never a lot of people around so it is worth to go through the difficult road to get there as the experience will compensate the road.

Easy walk (4km) along unmade road with a great reward! Limited facilities but a lot of space to stretch out.

Happened upon this lovely beach after nearly turning round because the road was so bumpy. Keep going to the end though and you will be rewarded with a lovely beach. Sun beds and shaded places to eat. Free and plentiful parking too.
