Votsala or Halikia is the 1km long pebbly beach located after the west end of Paleochora harbor, 79km south of Chania city. Votsala and Pahia Ammos are the two beaches in Paleohora town. Votsala is well organized and preferred mainly by Greeks than the sandy beach of Pahia Ammos. The beach is preferred by those who want to be close to the town and have all amenities closeby.

Keratides is the next beach, after Votsala (to the east). It has coarse pebbles and stones and is preferred by those who seek peace and avoid crowds. It takes its name after keratia, i.e. locust (carob) trees. With so many amazing beaches around Paleochora, Votsala and Keratides are not somethnig special. However, if you do not have car or motorbike, then they are a good choice.
