The peninsula of Grammeno(s) is located at the exit of river Pelekaniotis, 85km south of Chania and 5km east of Paleochora, on the road connecting Paleochora with Koundoura. Alonaki, Votsalo, or Gialos is a lovely beach with fine and coarse pebbles and a crystal clear sea, which starts from the east part of the peninsula and extends to the east. The beach is not protected from the waves and has an overall length of 500m. Umbrellas are provided in the west part, while the east part of the beach is the quietest.
On the other side of the peninsula, on the west, there is one amazing bay of Chouma. The sandy cove is well protected and faces west. Grammeno peninsula hosts an important colony of protected junipers. You can find shade under these trees, but special attention is required because cedars are very fragile. 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.
There is an organized camping site in Grammeno. There are also a few rooms and restaurants with excellent food around. If you do not have a car, you can reach Paleochora from Chania by bus and then get a taxi.
