Rock formations along the shore of Paleochora on the Greek island of Crete
The small coastal village of Palaiochora offers two beachfronts separated by a small peninsula. Usually, one or the other is pleasantly sheltered from the strong winds that often blow across the Libyan Sea. One is a wide, sandy beach popular for sunbathing and swimming activities.
The other, depicted in this photo, is rocky and more attractive to fishermen, strollers and photographers.
Palaiochora is a relaxing holiday place since early 70’s, when it was a popular "hippie" destination. It remains one of the fastest growing tourist towns on Crete.
