The beaches of Paleochora (70 km from Chania) are located along a thin strip of land on two picturesque coves. The village almost dips in to the Libyan Sea and is said to be "the nymph of the Libyan Sea" and "the Land of the Sun". The beaches are great for swimming and other athletic activities. Due to its location the weather conditions are well suited for windsurfing and kite surfing. These truly superbly organized and beautiful beaches offer everything the beach visitor could desire.
