An absolutely stunning beach! We drove an hour from Chania and it was more than worth it, paid €20 for cushioned sun beds but there all different types to pick from (can hire cabanas for around €40 euros). We walked further to the right of the beach and found it was much quieter with lots of spare beds around us which was great. There is also a waiter that comes round to take food and drinks orders which is all delivered to your sunbed - loads of choice too.
I cannot emphasise enough how beautiful the water is to swim in, a bit chilly at first but fine once you’re in!
One thing to note is the wind, definitely avoid on a windy day. We came on a day with a normal level of wind and even that was pretty windy, definitely tolerable though and they have wind breakers ( the area we sat in didn’t get have them up ).

A perfect beach day in my opinion :-)

I’ve visited this beautiful beach twice in the past. Both times over 10 years ago but each time it was very windy with huge waves. Yesterday went there already with our children and the wind was somewhat moderate so we absolutely loved it!!!!!! It’s a long totally beautiful turquoise water beach. The only sad thing I notice like everywhere - people who leave plastics packages, bottles, cigarette butts lying on the sand. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS!!!! Move your ass and throw things to the garbage bin and if the bin is full - don’t be too lazy to get your garbage with you till you find another bin. Don’t be that lazy and that stupid. Don’t spoil the beautiful nature!!!

This beach is stunning; the colour of the water (light blue and turquoise) just blows your mind and it has a huge coastline. The main Falassarna beach can get busy and there are water sports, sunbeds and a great cafe available. You can also go to the smaller Falassarna which is a 5 minute drive North, which is also nice but can also get busy. My partner and I are not huge fans of accessible/touristy beaches but this one is an exception; we had a great time here.

Have driven there today and driven more or less straight away. We have been coming her for years for one of days out while on Crete. Wow what a
change. This used to be a fabulous stretch of sandy beach with a few rows of sun beds and a small cafe
area. Now there are maybe over 1000
sun beds all in rows close together,
area where they seem to hire out bean bags, guys on buggies screetch around and there are 1000's of cars, the cafe is a sprawling mass of stools, tables, tents, all very trendy I suppose. Oh and thumping loud music wherever you choose to go on the beach.We arrived at around 2.30p. The guy wanted to charge 12.00euros for 2 Sun beds for a couple of hours in the afternoon, total rip off. We feel really upset as this place has changed beyond recognition. Avoid if your are looking for a quiet restful day on the beach.

We visited Falassarna beach and it is beautiful. Check the wind however. If the wind is W or NW than the currents and waves can be pretty tough. The lifeguards were on full alert. The place we went to rented sun loungers and they charge higher prices than other beaches. Besides that the surfers are almost on top of the swimmers. So be careful. But you can definitely have the best time there!

Fantastic beach, definitely our favourite beach of the whole holiday! We rented a cabana at €40 and were able to order food and drinks to it. The beach itself was quite quiet and a family beach so had a really nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Fine, soft sand, clear blue water and free public parking. Beach chair rental is from 10€-30€ for a pair of loungers and food and drinks may be served if you wish (fairly reasonable prices too). Beach staff are cool and professional. Lifeguard on duty. My favorite beach in Crete. Beware, it can be very windy and waves can be powerful.

Falassarna beach is a rather beautiful wide beach with fine-grained sand close to Kissamos city (not worth visiting). As for the natural part: the water, the sand the location next to the dunes - really is beautiful and wortwhwhile. The only reason a point deduction was done are the man-built facilities. The parking spaces seems very improvised and the cafes and restaurant look and feel makeshift. So while nature has done everything to provide Falassarna Beach visitors with a beautiful day, the people running the facilities in and around it, could do a little better.

We had the opportunity to visit several beaches on Crete and this was our favorite. The water and sand are beautiful. Parking is very organized, and the food/beverage service (delivered to your sun bed) was good. There are several types of sun beds and shades that you can rent, all at a reasonable price.

Very beautiful beach. Long, can get windy, few Tavernas on the beach. Sunbeds vary from the line at the beach, 20, 15, 10 EUR. A good place to eat is a bit up the hill Tavetna Spilios. Great view and food. With free Raki at end 😀
