The beach of Gialiskari is a rather large pebble beach just 4 km outside the village of Paleochora, to the east. The beach is situated on the eastside of the village and can be reached over a dirttrack with some bumps in in. On the way to the beach - actualy there are three: the 2 Gialiskari Beaches separeted by a small peninsula and Anidri Beach - you will see other beaches along the way. 

On Gialiskari beach there are umbrellas and sunbeds for rent and there is a taverna. The beach of Gialiskari is a pebble beach with quite large pebbles. This is located on a short peninsula, that creates these 3 separate beaches.

At the western side of Paleochora can find Grammeno beach, Karavopetra Beach, Pachia ammos and Krios

Nestling in the mountains surrounding Paleochora is the tiny village of Azogires. It is here, tucked away at the foot of the village boundaries, that you will find the small and beautiful Monastery of the 99 Holy Fathers.

Nestling in the mountains surrounding Paleochora is the tiny village of Azogires. It is here, tucked away at the foot of the village boundaries, that you will find the small and beautiful Monastery of the 99 Holy Fathers. The Monastery is no longer in use by the Fathers, but is now a museum and the calm serenity that surrounds the site makes the perfect environment for artists to sit & create wonderful work, helped by the amazing light & tones of shade found at this high altitude.

The story surrounding Holy Fathers Church is as inspiring as the time-worn icons inside. Saint John the Hermit was the leader of 98 Holy Fathers, but somehow they traveled to Azogires, without their saintly leader.

He got left behind for a time on deserted Gavdos Island. The Holy Fathers attributed their collective prayers to the return of their beloved John in 1300 CE. But being a hermit, he opted for his own cave and his followers for theirs. They settled for prayer inside the monastery.
