Paleochora in Crete
Hotels and apartments
Situted on the south western coast of Crete, the former
fishing village of Paleochora, sits on a small peninsula jutting into
the vast blue expanses of sea and behind is surrounded by a lush green
landscape with oleanders and olive trees.
The mountains of Sfakia form a dramatic rugged backdrop
and to the west there is a wonderful sandy beach, which is several
kilometers long. The small seaside town has a large selection of tavernas,
shops and cafes, and on a summer’s evening the bustling streets
become a much loved strolling and meeting point.
The area is ideal for beach lovers, or for walkers
eager to explore the south west coast and the surrounding mountains.
From Paleochora, boats ply back and forth along the coast, stopping
at a number of villages on the way to Chora Sfakion.
It is also possible to take boat trips to see Dolphins
as well as the remote island of Gavdos, which is the most southerly
point of Europe.
