Gialiskari beach is located 3-4 km east of the friendly holiday resort Paleochora in the south-western part of Crete.
Gialiskari is a genuine natural beach and it requires you to drive through a bumpy, unpaved road full of holes to get there.
However, the drive is very rewarding as you will reach a beach surrounded by mountains and with a lot of small trees. The sand is mixed with gravel and pebbles, but there are almost no stones along the waterline.
It is possible to rent sun lounges and sunshades at the beach, and there is also access to toilets. In the farthest end of the beach, there is a section for naturists, which usually has quite many visitors.
The water deepens quickly and there are quite a few rocks on the beach.
There are no water sports activities at Gialiskari beach.
There is a nice little beach café right where the beach begins.
