Stalida

Stalida is located in the central-eastern part of Crete. It is less than 30 km from Heraklion airport. Located directly along the coast, it is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Crete, which definitely comes alive with the advent of the tourist season

Night in Stalida
It's only at night that Stalida is teeming with real life

Most of its buildings are hotels and private apartments, which before the crisis were occupied by many guests. The town itself is a few streets and smaller streets, among which it is rather difficult to get lost. There are no major attractions here, except for a large number of shops, rentals, pubs and clubs.



During the day, there is a rather dreamy atmosphere here, tourists enjoy first of all the benefits of the nearby sandy (!) Beach. Much bigger traffic is done here in the evening, when touts start trying to catch as many customers as possible to taverns and pubs. Evening passage through the main street of Stalida can give you a headache. A multitude of various restaurants, clubs, stalls and ubiquitous music causes that tourists looking for, above all, Stalid's peace rather likely will not like it, because they will not have a chance to rest here. On the other hand, people looking for fun in the first place will feel good here.

Sandy beach in Stalida
The wide sandy beach is one of Stalida's greatest assets




Despite the above-mentioned negative aspects, Stalida is still a more peaceful place than nearby Malia , which, unfortunately, also enjoys a much worse reputation.

Nevertheless, focusing on the advantages of this town, it must be admitted that Stalida also has two great assets. The first one is a sandy beach, which is a rarity in Crete. The second advantage will be appreciated primarily by tourists planning a more active holiday combined with visiting the island. The location of Stalida makes it an excellent starting point from which you can go to many places worth visiting:

  • Less than 30 km separate Stalida from Heraklion and the palace next to Knossos , which probably does not need to be presented to anyone.
  • Nearly 40 km to the east of Stalida, we find the village of Elounda , from which ships for the nearby island of lepers - Spinalonga - are constantly leaving.
  • On the outskirts of the previously mentioned Malia, there are ruins of one of the major Minoan palaces .
  • 34 km divide Stalida from the charming village of Kritsa , where you can feel the atmosphere of the Greek village. Right next to this place you will find the ruins of the ancient summer city and the Byzantine temple of Panga and Kera .
  • Even closer is the Lashiti Plateau (about 20 km) next to which is known to every fan of Greek mythology - the Dikte cave .
  • A slightly larger distance (about 70 km) divides Stalida from Gortyna, where the ruins of the city are well preserved. 8 km after Gortyna is the palace in Phaistos (Festos) , hence it is a few kilometers away from the beach in Matala.

Zakros and Kato Zakros

Zakros and Kato Zakros

Zakros is a small town on the east coast of Crete, less than 40 km south-east of Sitia. Through Zakros leads the main road leading from the north coast to the 8 km distant Kato Zakros, where there are ruins of the Minoan palace and the entrance to the Gorge of the Dead. However, few of those who are going to these places stop at the center of the village of Zakros and leave the car to explore this interesting place.

Piotr Iwańczyk: Taka ciekawostka związana z bitwą. Podczas tej batalii miała miejsce niemiecka wersja "Szeregowca Ryan'a". Jednego dnia - 21 maja 1941 - zginęło trzech braci z hrabiowskiego rodu von Blücher. Wolfgang, Leberecht i Hans-Joachim Graf von Blücher.

Piotrek | www.crete.pl : Piotr dzięki za uwagi, którymi uzupełniłeś artykuł Gosi (ja akurat przy niem niewiele zrobiłem :). Przy okazji mam do Ciebie pytanie odnośnie korzystania z GPS. Jako osoba doświadczona w tej kwestii na pewno będziesz lepiej wiedział. Jakim sprzętem lub oprogramowaniem warto ewentualnie zainteresować się w kwestii wyjazdu na Kretę i ewentualnego wykorzystania tras zarejestrowanych przez innych użytkowników?
Marta Domagała: Bardzo ważne jest dobrze dobrane obuwie. Doświadczyłam tego osobiście, moje buty nie nadawały się do pokonywania olbrzymich głazów , i musiałam część z nich pokonywać na bosaka.
gość PiotrWie: Jako osoba chodząca od lat po górach Krety - dodam do tego co pisał Piotr zdecydowaną sugestię używania trasera - szlaki są znakowane z "polskiego" punktu widzenia fatalnie - wiem co mówię bo zanim zacząłem jeździć na Kretę schodziłem góry Polski, Czech, Słowacji, bywałem w Alpach, poza tym jestem przewodnikiem sudeckim a dopóki nie zacząłem używać trasera GPS zdarzało nam się wielokrotnie gubić szlak - niestety ...
