Falassarna is about 75 km west of the city of Chania, on the west coast of Crete.
One of the most popular destinations in Crete, Falassarna is a row of sandy beaches with deep blue waters. It has become popular due to its crystal clean waters and unaltered beauty. In spite of this, Falassarna hasn't experienced noticeable touristic development which makes for a very quiet and idyllic location. It is definitely a spot to relax in, enjoy the beautiful landscape and to savor one of the best sunsets in Crete.
If you are a lover of archeological monuments you will have the opportunity to admire the remains of Ancient Falassarna, a stone throne (possibly dedicated to Poseidon – god of the sea) and the ruins of a temple dedicated to the god Apollo.
From the city of Chania there is frequent bus service to Falassarna.
