Pahia Ammos beach Chania: The wonderful beach of Pahia Ammos is located 80 km south west of Chania Town and close to Paleochora. It is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches of Crete and has been awarded the Blue Flag for the cleanliness of its waters.
Since the beach is sometimes affected by strong winds and the water is deep, lifeguards ensure the protection of swimmers. Many tourist facilities are found around the beach of Pahia Ammos and in the popular resort of Paleochora. Umbrellas and sunbeds are also available. The wonderful surrounding attracts many families.
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.
