The West Crete holidays guide
Location of Paleochora


Paleochora is a large village which has been popular with tourism for a number of years, no doubt because of its beautiful beach.

 Getting there

75 km from Hania on a good road. Several buses per day. You can also reach Paleochora by boat from other villages in the south-west of Crete.


It is a "real" village with a population of about 2000. Lively and sometimes a little too busy in the high season but it is very easy to get away from the bustle.


A very wide choice. Find accommodation in Paleochora


Many restaurants of all kinds.


Plenty of shops.


Some bars and a discoteque.


Beautiful long sandy beach, a little exposed to the West wind. There are several other more protected (pebble) beaches nearby. There are more beaches further west at Konduras and Krios.
