I loved this beach! It is better than Balos but close to Elafonisi. You just have to make sure you get there pretty early and take your sunbed. Would definitely go back again in the future!

Elafonisi and Balos are unbelievable but there are, unfortunately, a lot of people, instead in Falassarna everything is more beautiful than how it is in reality because there are few people and so you can spend at better your time there. Obviously I recommend you...More

Very near to Chania compared to other beaches in the south, always find a place to sit and surprisingly clean despite the crowd! One of the cons that the food on the seaside was not that good, actually cheap

Hi, there are places to buy snacks and drinks at Falassarna and very nice and inexpensive taverna To Kuoma at the central part of the beach. At Efalonissi I would advice to take smth with you to the beach.
