Kandanos - Selino is a comparatively large region which extends, roughly speaking, from the west coast of Crete to the western foothills of the White Mountains. Its northern part starts at the north-south water dividing line of the hills and it ends on the shores of the Libyan sea to the south.
It is a fertile hilly region and its main products are olives and grapes on the southern hills of central Selino. Nowadays there are also some important greenhouse plantations near Paleochora. The municipality of Kandanos - Selino is famous for its beaches, especially the magic Elafonisi beach, as well as the city of Paleohora, a graphical city with rich nightlife.
