Chrousso Bay is in fact a big beach with a lot of bars. The beach is also called Paliouri, because it is right next to this place. Xenia also refers to the same beach, as well as Koursaros, Blue fish, Cabana, Lefki Ammos beach and all the names are after the bars that exist or have existed on this beach. Xenia is the mostly used name. This beach is one of the most beautiful on Kassandra. It is recognizable by its fine sand like flour and very long shoal extending up to 30m into water. The water is very clean and clear, and the sea is calm. This beach is a paradise for children. The most beautiful part of the beach, part with the finest sand is on the right, looking towards the sea, in front of Koursaros bar, close to a small marina where boats depart on a cruise. This part has plenty of natural shade, but it’s also very crowded, especially at the weekend and when boats with tourists from Sithonia and other places on Kassandra arrive. The aforementioned bars are placed toward Paliouri. They are all beautifully arranged and spacious, with a car park behind the bars. On the beach there’s also a camping site, a luxury hotel, as well as water sports amenities. The beach is perfect for families with young children.
Going further towards Pefkohori, after Paliouri, we’ll come across another large bay called Golden beach. It’s a beach similar to Xenia (Paliouri), except that instead of fine sand it has small or somewhat larger gravel. This beach is less crowded and more peaceful, situated in a lee, so there are no waves or wind. The water is unrealistically clean and quiet, and in the hinterland of the beach there’s a forest. The beach has a little natural shade, so you should get there early. The depth is gradual, so this beach is also good for families with children. The best part of the beach or the part with the best entrance to water (without stones) is the rightmost part of the beach, looking toward the sea. On the beach there are arranged parts, and also a lot more room to set your own equipment.
