The surface of Paleochora Beach is a mixture of sand, pebbles and larger stones and there are also various branches blown in from the surrounding vegetation. The beach is hidden in the wilderness, among rocks and pine forests. The wind is often strong and sometimes, it blows seaweed in. Water shoes are a must for this place, but there are also nice spots where you can spread out your towel.

Paleochora is an unorganised beach with no tourist facilities, so be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks. The access road to the beach goes along a dirt natural road, in a relatively isolated area of Rhodes, away from the busy tourist resorts. The beach lies at the west coast of the island, near the villages of Kritinia and Embonas.
