  • I've been to this beach in August 2017. The beach is large compared to the standard that is located around the island. Along the beach there are lots of eateries, shops and bars, which with much courtesy and kindness will keep you from eating the typical dishes of the place, complete with beach service. The only flaw sore is the sea, which is not crystal clear and the sand is golden, seemed to be Jesolo/Riccione.

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.
