Amazing Falassarana Beach, one of the top ten best beaches in Europe, is located on the West coast of Crete and it is considered to be one of the most stunning beaches of the island...
Well known as a small “earthly paradise”, Falasarna is also situated next to the ruins of the homonymous ancient city, that will captivate you for sure.
Falasarna Beach has won prizes for being the most beautiful beach in Crete and is always one of the top ten beaches in Europe, with its wonderful, fine white sand and warm, crystal-clear waters.
Your directions : The road goes past the town of Kissamos (about 40 km to the West of Chania) then on for around 10 km to the village of Platanos where you turn off to the right following the signs to Falasarna. A small winding road takes you down to sea level and on to Falasarna. It takes about 20 minutes from Kissamos, one hour from Chania.
Our tip : If you go right to the end of the beach, close to the 'Falasarna Tavern' and park there is a lovely walkway through trees down to the beach. There are several shallow pools in this bay which are ideal for young and old alike, where you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas if you want. There are several cafes within striking distance, so its a great place to go and spend a very relaxing day.
This is a worthwile road trip with your car rental during your summer holiday in fabulous Crete.
