Beaches · Landmarks · Parasailing & Paragliding
The ancient harbor town of Falassarna, once an independent city-state, today represents one of Crete's quieter resorts, drawing mostly day-trippers from the nearby town of Chania. In addition to a long stretch of sandy coastline, the low-key town offers visitors access to several ancient ruins, including the remains of an acropolis and temple dedicated to the goddess Dyctynna. A pocket of tranquility on an island known for its vibrant nightlife and crowded beaches, Falassarna clings to its age-old way of life, seemingly unchanged by the passage of time. If you prefer livelier places on your itinerary, use Falassarna as a day base and spend your evenings in Kissamos or Chania. Add Falassarna and other destinations to your itinerary using our Greece trip site, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Falassarna

There are only a few places available for rent along the pristine Falassarna beaches, so consider staying in the nearby towns of Hania or Kissamos-Kastelli. The number of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and self-catering accommodations in these neighboring towns makes it much less stressful to find lodging, and you can head to Falassarna for a day trip. However, if you would like to spend more than one day riding the waves off the Falassarna shoreline and watching its famous sunsets, you can try to reserve a room or apartment near the water.
