Karavopetra beach is 2 km west of Paleochora. The beach has beautiful small pebbles and scattered rocks, as well as crystal-clear water.
The beach is named after a large rock that is there, which reminds of a ship traveling on the sea (“karavopetra” means “ship rock” in Greek), and it consists of scenic small coves. It is not organized and has no shade, except for the rocks next to the beach, which can protect you to some extent from the sun, depending on their orientation.
Karavopetra Beach is a great place to swim and sunbathe just outside Paleochora, Chania.
