“Beautiful beach, but too busy!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We went for a swim to Falassarna beach near Chania. The beach is beautiful and sandy and the water has all shades of blue. Nevertheless, this beach is very touristic and I would not recommend it during August to people who want some peace and quiet. We did not enjoy it as much mainly due to two reasons: the hordes of people and the great wind. Try to visit it when it is not windy. Sandy wind tends to hurt the skin!

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great beach. Not ideal for small children though - the waves were rather rough. Elafonisi is much better for small children.

“Don't miss Ancient Falasarna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We almost missed the ruins! We saw only one little sign saying " ancient Falsarana " and the road is a bumpy dirt road going through olive groves. We thought we were lost. . But worth the drive to see where the old port was. The whole island of Crete was raised over 6 meters when a huge earthquake hit and the port was drained.
After the self guided tour we hit the beach which has the best waves on the island!

“The place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Magnificent view-clear water-peaceful place-normal prices. I did not expect to have such a good time with so little money.
