Pahia Ammos, Paleochora - 1.8 out of 5 based on 378 votes

The beach of Pahia Ammos (i.e. Coarse Sand) is located on the west side of Paleochora, 79km south of Chania. Pahia Ammos has been awarded a blue flag, which confirms that this is a safe and clean beach.

It is the main beach of Paleochora, well organized and in close proximity to all touristic amenities. The beach is 1km long, which makes it always seem empty. It has fine white sand and shallow waters, ideal for children. However, when westerly or southerly winds blow, the waves are quite big and need attention.

Umbrellas, bars, snack bars, bars, water sports equipment, showers and lifeguard tower are some of the provided services. Also, the western part of the beach is secluded and is mainly preferred by nudists.
