I visited at the end of the season, beginning of October, so it was good to find the place still pretty neat, tidy and generally well kept. The cabin I stayed in was very clean, comfortable and had all I needed - bed, refrigerator, electricity, table and chairs outside and less than a minute to walk into the sea! The shared facilities were regularly cleaned and all seemed to be working ok. The camping was quiet and peaceful, with friendly staff on hand if needed. It was good to see the various 'pitches', both permanent and transitory were not crammed in, but had breathing space between them so neighbours do not overwhelm. The setting is glorious and the camping beach is beautiful; sand with some rocky areas in places. Ideal for paddling, swimming or just floating about..... There is easy access to a range of walks - shoreline or up into the mountains. As well as the on site bar/restaurant there is another restaurant just a few hundred yards up the road. The nearest town, Paleo...

Open all year - Special winter prices

Grammeno Camping is right next to Grammeno Beach, just a few steps from the crystal clear Libyan Sea.

Even in winter, Grammeno Camping is still a welcoming place for long or short-stay visitors.


You would need to be a hardy camper to wish to stay in a tent but we have small and larger cabins available for daily, weekly or monthly rental. We also have larger accommodation with toilet, shower and separate bedroom. We can accommodate motorhomes and caravans. Electricity is available in all locations.


There is a modern central bathroom block with toilets and hot showers. Water is heated electrically from 08:00-10:00 so you're sure of a hot shower.

You can cook in our central kitchen where there are fridges and sinks and enjoy your meal in the nearby seating area or in your van or accommodation. You can also use the central barbecue near the kitchen.

Supermarkets are nearby in Kountoura (1km) or Paleochora (4.5km). Open Monday to Saturday.

The local restaurants have closed down for the winter but will reopen for business in April around Orthodox Easter. There are still restaurants nearby but these will require a short trip to Paleochora.

There is a modern, 15kg washing machine. Please ask if you'd like to use it.


These include the beach, walking or mountain biking in the nearby mountains, cycling or hiking. Fishing, snorkelling, diving, waterski or jet ski are just a few of the options. The renowned beach at Elafonissi is within hiking distance along the E4 coastal path. The road is less direct and is a bit of a drive!

Visit the charming village of Paleochora only 4.5km by road. One of the few remaining communities on Crete where the inhabitants live year-round. It retains its ancient charm whilst providing visitors with a number of facilities and attractions. There’s a choice of beach: sand or pebbles: east or west. A castle and churches, restaurants and bars, banks and shops, doctors and dentists. As well as a vet, a pet shop and even a nightclub!

From Paleochora there are buses to Chania, Sougia, Kountoura and Elafonisi. A ferry to Gavdos or east along the coast to Sougia and beyond. A car or bike can be rented so you can please yourself. Walks to Sougia along the E4 coastal path or into the mountains for wonderful views. Visit Gialiskari Beach, wander up the Anydri Gorge or visit the ruins at Lissos.
