Lovely campsite. I stayed in a wooden tent and it was perfect. Walking out to have the sand on your feet was paradise. The beach is really clean and the restaurant food is 5 star. . Daily specials on the board are a must to try. Facilities very clean and staff super helpful and friendly. Really good vibe to the whole place. I will be back. Thank you Maria and the team.

Great experience! It can get really windy but the sea stays calm even then and you can go for a swim. The facilities were in great shape. Everything you need is inside the camp. Our young children had the best time there and even for our 3 year old everything was easy. We shall be back..

Local amenities and places of interest

These include the beach, walking or mountain biking in the nearby mountains also cycling or hiking. Fishing, snorkelling, diving, waterski or jet ski are just a few of the options.

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, a museum and churches, restaurants and bars, banks and a good range of shops. As well as doctors and dentists, a vet, a pet shop and even a nightclub!

From Paleochora there are buses to Chania, Sougia, Kountoura and Elafonisi. Ferries to Gavthos or east along the coast to Sougia, Agia Roumeli 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.

Bus services are operated by KTEL (ΚΤΕΛ). Destinations and timetables for 2020 are to be found here. Prices can be obtained by use of the interactive but sometimes unpredictable, ticket booking system.

The main south coastal ferries operate all year but are prone to cancellation during bad weather so it's better to check the day before if uncertain. Services are more frequent with additional destinations during the summer months. Ferry timetables and prices for 2020 are to be found here

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! During the summer there is a small ferry which leaves Paleochora around 10:00 and will bring you back from Elafonisi in the afternoon. Booking is via Selino Travel in Paleochora. There is also a bus to Elafonisi operated by K-Tel

Heading east from Paleochora, towards the village of Anidri, it is possible to park your car just past the Paleochora camping for a walk to Gialiskari beach and the gorge to Anidri. The gorge is approximately 3km long with some difficult terrain in places. Allow two hours for the climb to Anidri village where you will be rewarded with the opportunity of refreshments at the Schoolhouse Kafeneion: a worthwhile stop. From there, you can descend via the road through a gorge to find your car.

Further afield are the Irini and Samaria Gorges. Both descend to the sea with the possibility of a ferry back to Paleochora. Of the two, Samaria is the more formidable with a descent of around 1,200m and distance of 13km compared to 500m and 7km for Irini. There is a private bus service which passes the camping between 07:00 - 07:20. More details from reception. The public bus service, KTEL, operates from the Paleochora bus station. See below for timetables and pricing. The public bus takes you to Omalos for the Samaria Gorge or to Agia Irini for the Irini Gorge. The Irini Gorge is open all year however Samaria only for the summer season. Of the two, Samaria is the most well known and consequently, the more crowded. At the base of the Samaria Gorge, there is a further 3km walk to Agia Roumeli and ferry back to Paleochora via Sougia. From the end of the Irini Gorge, there is a further 4.5km to Sougia and the ferry back to Paleochora.

From Paleochora, a 5km journey will take you up into the mountains to the village of Azogires. There are caves to explore, a waterfall, the monastery of the Holy Fathers, which is now a museum, churches and the local Kafeneion for Sofia's omelette or other refreshments. From Azogires a two-hour walk will take you to Anidri and the head of the gorge which descends to the sea at Gialiskari.
