The small town of Paleochora lies at the southwest part of Crete and the southest part of Europe. It is built on a small peninsula between two picturesque gulfs. Paleochora is washed by the Libyan Sea. It is called the Nyph of Lybian Sea and the Land of the Sun.

Corali studios are built at the east sea wall, 100 meters from the small port and 200 meters from the KTEL bus station. They offer spectacular view of the small port and the Crocodile Cape. Very close to Paleochora are the organized beaches of Halikia (150 meters) and Pachia Ammos (250 meters), awarded with the Blue Flag by the European Union.
