The island of Crete is famed for its great beaches, particularly in the north west. Falassarna beach is among the very best of these with its fine white sand and crystal-clear, azure waters. Set in a long sweeping bay backed by agricultural land Falasarna rarely feels crowded owing to its size. Visitors are well catered for with several bars and cafes along the beach. On the second Saturday of August there is the annual Falassarna Beach Party which attracts young people from all over Europe to party the night away.
