Falasarna - beach with TOP 10

Beach in Falasarna

A view of the largest of the beaches located in the area of ​​Falasarna

Arriving at Falasarna, the first thing that strikes you is the fact that this region of Crete is one of the better places for growing vegetables and fruits. Confirmation of this is the view from the road leading to Falasarna, from which stretches a beautiful panorama of orchards, olive groves and a large number of greenhouses. However, it is not the agricultural industry that has made this place famous, but the beaches here, which attract tourists every summer.

The best beach of Greece

In 2002, Falasarna won the title of the best beach in Greece. This distinction is by no means accidental, because this place is truly unique by Crete standards. The long and, above all, wide beach called Pachia Amos is completely different from most of the "miniature" beaches available in Crete. Only a few places can be found on the whole island, which in this respect would be able to compete with Falasarna.

In addition to the previously mentioned beach called Pachia Amos, there is also a beach at the Ancient Falasarna, northern and southern excavations. The large extent of the sandy terrain causes that despite the large number of tourists coming here, everyone will find a piece of space where he can spread his beach towels and an umbrella. Of course, nothing prevents you from using rented sun loungers. The wide width of the beach gives the opportunity to practice not only water sports, but also beach volleyball, such as volleyball. The place has quite good tourist facilities, there is a large parking lot right on the beach, where you can leave your car without any problems. It is true that you can complain about a small number of dining options, but the two bars and a café operating here are certainly enough to satisfy the first hunger.




Beach Party

It is worth staying here until the evening hours, because this beach allows you to enjoy the amazing sunset, which is often a signal to start the night Beach Party. Since 1995, the youth from the village of Platanos organize a great Beach Party on the first or second Saturday. Famous DJs, free admission and relatively cheap drinks cause that many people stay here and dance all night long.

Falasarna - active beach

Falasarna is located about 60 km from Chania. When driving from New National Road from this city, you have to drive through Kissamos to turn into the side road on the right side of Platanos. Going further along the signposts you have to get to the edge of the hill stretching along the western coast of Crete. It is worth stopping at least for a moment to see the magnificent skyline stretching to the beach and the adjacent farmland. The next section is a narrow and winding road descending steeply towards the sea shore. It is worth to be careful in this episode, as this section of the route is quite demanding, especially when it comes back in the late evening hours.

Plaża jest piękna, choć bardzo wietrzna (a może to był taki wietrzny dzień?) Ujęło mnie to, że pan wynajmujący leżaczki dał nam dwie butelki zimnej wody za darmo :) i to że można zamówić pizzę, napoje i lody nie ruszając się z miejsca - pan właściciel knajpy przywoził na skuterze (czy innym pojeździe), w takiej samej cenie co przy barze. Plaża czysta, śliczna.

Tripiti beach and gorge

Tripiti beach and gorge

Redirected from the site - Tripiti beach and gorge. Tripiti is a small beach covered with a mixture of gray sand, gravel and stones. Despite the fact that the beach is unorganized and has a semi-natural appearance, one small tavern works here. The vast majority of people relaxing in this place are the local Cretans. This is evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of parked cars are pickups and off-road vehicles. A great surprise is the view of many caravans, campers and tents, which are in the vicinity of tablets strongly prohibiting camping and parking ... caravans. On the hill in the north-eastern part of the beach (Kalokambos), you can see small Minoan ruins.

Beach in Damnoni

Beach in Damnoni

Damnoni boasts a wide beach located in a deeply embedded bay, the boundaries of which are marked by two peninsulas facing the sea. Along the shore of a small river that flows into the sea in the western part of the beach, there is a local road where you can leave your car. However, if you plan to come here weekend, you have to reckon with the fact that finding a free place to park the car can take a moment.
