Coastal Villages

Falasarna on map of CreteFalassarna

Falasarna beach Extraordinary beach with shale-like rock platforms and some stretches of smooth gentle sand. When it is windy, Falasarna feels it, but this is a rarely-crowded and spacious beach area. Combining a few neat and appealing small modern hotels with some casual relics, a handful of separated beachfront cafes and tavernas. There are great fans of Falasarna as well as those who find it ill-defined, but well worth visiting as another open-space natural beach area unlike any other in Crete. A brief jaunt from Kissamos (Kastelli) and easy to visit from Chania.
