Paleohori beach

Paleohori, meaning ("old town") is a series of three long sandy beaches.  It is unique for its crumbling cliffs and variety of natural colours.  The colours are a result of minerals, notably iron and sulphur, deposited in the rocks by geothermal process.

Geothermal activity continues to this day and can be seen on the western end of the bay in form of steam vents, hot springs and the only natural sauna cave in the world.
