Grammeno beach is 4.5 km west of Paleochora, and it essentially consists of 3 individual beaches around a scenic little peninsula in the area.
The first beach we meet faces east and has pebbles. The second, which is the busiest, faces west, and has excellent golden sand and shallow water, being suitable for families with young children. The third beach, also facing west, consists of small secluded coves on the edge of the peninsula, where there is a beautiful cedar grove, offering a marvelous natural landscape along with the tamarisk trees of the area.
All the beaches have crystal-clear water and the area has been awarded the Blue Flag. The first two beaches have sun beds and parasols. There is a camping site in the area, while along the beach you will find good taverns for lunch or dinner.
Grammeno beach is a short drive from Paleochora, Chania, and is an excellent choice of beach to enjoy the sea and the sun of South Crete, with the added advantages of the beautiful natural environment and the fact that its individual beaches offer the choice between sand and pebbles.
