Stalis

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Crete  /  Heraklion Prefecture  /  Stalis
Stalis, or "Stalida" as the locals call it, sits on Crete's northern coastline and attracts mostly sun-starved tourists from Europe's colder climates. For most of its history, the town remained a sleepy coastal settlement almost exclusively dependent on farming and agriculture. Today Stalis' economy relies on tourism, its sandy beaches a huge tourist attraction for visitors exploring this section of the island's coast. Stalis also provides quick and easy access to the surrounding ancient sites, which include well-preserved remains of the long-gone Minoan civilization. To learn more about the region's rich history, take a bus to the nearby city of Heraklion, famed for its fine museum of archaeology. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Stalis and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Stalis

Less crowded than the resorts that bookend this seaside village, Stalis offers a number of family-friendly places to stay, including a good array of quiet hotels and apartments for rent.
