The beach is not protected from the waves and has an overall length of 500m. Umbrellas are provided in it's west part, while the east part of the beach is the most quiet. On the other side of the peninsula, on the west, there is one amazing bay of Grammeno. The sandy cove is well protected and looks west.
There is an organized camping in Grammeno. There are also a few rooms and restaurants with excellent food around. If you do not have car, you can reach Paleochora from Chania by bus and then get a taxi.
Grammeno peninsula hosts an important colony of cedar-like trees (juniper trees). You can find shade under these trees, but special attention is required because cedars are very fragile and require respect. Under no circumstances, should someone break branches, considering that they grow only 1cm a year. So it is suggested to use the umbrellas provided on the beach and to avoid contact with the trees.
