The area of Falasarna offers one of the best swimming beaches on the island
The endless sandy beaches of Falasarna are within 1 hour’s drive west of Chania. Fine sand, wide beaches, crystal clear sea water with a sandy bottom, are waiting for the visitors.
The beaches are surrounded by 220 m high hills that are often used in summer as the perfect paragliding slopes. In the sand dunes the beach lily Pancratium maritimum grows and blooms from August to October.
- The often windy area is also quite popular to surfers.
- There are canteens or taverns at all beaches.
