Paleochora is built on a small peninsula, between two bays in the Libyan Sea. The peninsula did not exist in antiquity, and the hill where the Venetian fortress is located was a small island until the seabed was raised due to a powerful earthquake forming a peninsula. On the east coast of the peninsula there is a pier for mooring ships. In the western bay there is an artificial harbor, while on the island of Shistonisi, at the edge of the peninsula, there is a lighthouse.

On both sides of the peninsula are beaches, one with pebbles to the east called Halikia or Votsala beach and one with sand in the west named Pachia Ammos and is about one kilometer long. Four kilometers east of Paleochora, in Gialiskari, there are three other beaches, near the gorge that begins in the village of Anhydri. Scattered on these beaches there are large rocks called Talos, from the mythical guardian of Crete. To the west are the beaches of Psilos Volakas, Plakaki and Karavopetra, near Grammenos, a small peninsula four kilometers east of Paleochora, several beaches, ten kilometers west of Krios Beach and even further west, about 18 kilometers, Elafonisi Beach.
