Krios beach, Paleochora

Beach description

Krios beach, situated approximately 10km west of Paleochora and 90km south of Chania city, lies on the eastern section of Krios Cape. This charming secluded beach spans around 1km and is split into three consecutive bays filled with fine pebbles and coarse sand.

The easternmost bay, the first of the three, is less ideal for swimming owing to its rocky nature, exposure to southern winds, and lack of amenities. The middle bay, despite being the most frequented part of the beach, maintains a tranquil ambiance. It offers a parking spot, a quaint canteen, and umbrellas. The third beach, a mere two-minute walk to the west of Krios, houses a beautiful small cove concealed by a large rock. This cove is a favourite among nudists, as it provides ample privacy. Umbrellas are available here too, and for those reluctant to pay for one, the nearby rocks form small hollows that provide shade.

You can reach Krios by car via Paleochora. Moreover, Krios is adjacent to a section of the E4 European footpath that connects Paleochora with Elafonisi.
