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.
Moving from Paleochora to the campsite a sign pointing towards the beach Gialiskari. After a short ride on a dirt road you will reach the deserted beach, or rather on two beaches, and at this point the land goes into the sea creating a small peninsula.
