Pachia Ammos is the main beach of Paleochora and as you can see from its name (Thick Sand), it is its sand makes the difference!
Pachia Ammos is an organized beach with fine white sand located on the west side of Paleochora, 79 km at south of Chania.
The coast has a length of one kilometer and this makes it look almost empty although it is crowded. Pachia Ammos is naturally ideal for children as the waters are shallow, but when westerly winds or southerly winds blow, the waves are big and you must be careful.
On the beach of Pachia Ammos there are umbrellas, bars, cafeterias, equipment for water sports, showers and a lifeguard. The nudists prefer the western part of the beach.
In recent years Paleochora attracts a large number of the visitors of Chania, as it has turned into a beautiful tourist resort. The beach of Pachia Ammos is clearly the biggest advantage, as well as the tourist facilities, restaurants and bars.
