  • No reason was closed in August and arrived on site we had to come back. Luckily the beach made up and made our day.

  • It takes good will to visit this site that is not maintained very well, however the dusty trip worth the visit. The remains of an ancient city and rich sea positioned strategically, with wealth and a beautiful harbor-

  • At present there is not much to see, but the site has great potential. The problem, which we also in Italy, is that to end the excavations and promote the old port it takes a lot of money. Still worth to visit, even to encourage the necessary investment. You can get there from the beach of falassarna doing a walk of about 20 minutes. Or in the car. .. The signs, especially at the beginning is enough. Then follow the gravel road bigger, way down.

  • the area where the ancient glorious city of falassarna was located. there's 1,5 or 2km narrow (bout 3 meters wide) path from the falassarna beach that drives you there .as bout monuments hmm... there 're not really much to see anymore... but the scenery of the location is unique and it will definitely compensate you for that
  • Was closed on the day we visited. Looked interesting though.
  • If you like a glimpse into ancient history, don't miss out on this if you're in this part of the island.
  • One of the most beautiful places of Crete, surrounded by mountains and the sea
  • Excavations are still in progress and you can just wander through and see that a lot is still waiting to be uncovered.

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.
