The beach is very long wide and there are several entrances. We took the one after the main entrance and it was quiet. Off course also due to the off season. It was clean had good bathrooms and wasn't expensive ( 2 beds with sun umbrella €7,--)

I would say this is your average holiday beach. Its easy to get to and is massive so is good for tourist season. There is plenty of space to park your car near it and has a few beach bars/ cafes. View wise, I would say I saw nicer beaches in Crete than this one.

Visited with a minibus tour and there were hardly any people. Fabulous beach - only thing that spoils it are the numerous greenhouses around. There is a taverna up the lane where Ii had dorada - superb.

My family and I visited this beach today and we were astounded by how beautiful it was. Previously we had visited elafonissi beach so we knew we were always going to compare to that, however I would say this beach is better for a number of reasons. Yes elafonissi beach is really pure and untouched but this is really no... More

We just spent a lovely afternoon at this beach. Free sun beds and umbrellas, toilet and cafes nearby. Lovely views. What else would you want?

The beach is Amazing. Really awesome. I was there at the end of April and almost whole beach was empty. It was perfect. The water has the most beautiful color of blue. Much better than Elafonisi beach.

Though not as spectacular as Elafonisssi beach with its pristine blue waters, Falassarna beach is pleasant and offers a different aspect of the Cretan coast.

A very unnderrated beautiful beach! Wow... where to start? Kilometers of fluffy sand with beautiful turquoise waters, feels actually nicer than Elafosini because the sand here is softer, and nicer! It also has really amazing clear visibility underwater - great for snorkeling! There's also actually a shipwreck at the very end of the beach (Near Ancient Falassarna). And it's easily... More

We visited Falasarna beach only to admire the sunset as we had been informed that Falasarna beach has the most beautiful sunset in Crete. The sunset was indeed magical and romantic! Unfortunately we did not have time to swim there..
