Choosing Palaiochora for your holidays is by itself a wonderful choice, as it is one of the most beautiful tourist attractions in Crete. Palaiochora is a small, picturesque little town built on a peninsula south of Hania (74 km away from it),situated in the arms of the Libian sea. The village (town) is abundant with all kinds of shops; restaurants, serving fresh fish and sea food, pizzerias, traditional taverns, vegetarian restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, supermarkets, banks, tourist offices, rent-a-car offices, a police station, an open-air cinema, a health center and a microbiology lab.
Along the 16 km of Palaiochoras’ coastline, you can find many well-organized big and small beaches, e.g., the main ones "Pahia Ammos" and "Votsalo". There are even several isolated ones. If you rent a bike or car and make your way to the East, you can find an area called "Yaliskari" that has 3 beautiful beaches where you can enjoy relaxation and calmness.
In the West, on the peninsula of "Grammeno" there is the exotic cedar-tree forest and two large beaches: the east one, that is covered with pebbles and the west one covered with sand. A majestic place where you will have a great time. Don't forget to explore the reefs of the peninsula. If you love diving, the beach "Psilos Volakas" with its green/blue deep waters is the right destination. A little bit lower, "Karavopetra" will be a pleasant surprise for you.
Another love-at-the-first-sight beach is "Plakaki", waiting for you to visit its 3 cute beaches, hidden in the rocks. At the end of the sea coast towards the West, you can find the famous "Krios" beach, known for its wild beauty and crystal waters. From there, if you follow the path E4 heading to "Elafonisi", you will find yourself (within 50 minutes) at the lake "Krios" and the "Viene" beach where marble pillars both along the coast and underwater, give evidence for the existence of the ancient town "Viene".
Your choices do not end here. In Palaiochora’ sport, small sea-liners tour daily to "Elafonisi" in the West and in the East the tour goes to `Sougia`, `Ag, Roumeli`, "Loutro",and to "Sfakia". If you love hiking, you can hike up to "Omalos" and then climb down to the famous `Samaria Gorge` or the smaller, but beautiful gorge of "AgiaIrini". If all of the above seem rather difficult to you, you can always hike down the smaller gorge of "Azoyires", outside the village "Azoyires", "Anidri" a few kilometers away from Palaiochora. For sea-sports-lovers many great choices are offered; wind-surfing, jet-ski, sea cycling, canoes, diving, fishing. Walk around the narrow streets, visit the Folklore Museum, go up to the Venetian castle, take a rest at the marvelous beaches, try the tasty "mezedes". Hike the paths of our wild nature, enjoy the night life of the village and have the most wonderful, unforgettable vacations of your life by satisfying all your senses!
