Beaches · Bars & Clubs · Outdoor Activities
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. On the other hand, if you want to be at the center of activity on this popular tourist destination, look at options along its Venetian-style streets. Many choose to enjoy Stalis in a resort hotel along its sandy shores, where you'll have access to a few restaurants and bars just a few kilometers from the water.
