There are two more beaches further south: a sandy beach with rocks on the bottom, and a pebble beach next to the little harbor.
Falassarna Beach has won prizes for being the most beautiful beach in Crete and is always one of the top ten beaches in Europe, with its wonderful, fine white sand and warm, crystal-clear water. The beach of Pachia Ammos is so big that it rarely feels overcrowded even in high summer, when you are surrounded by hundreds of people. Falassarna beach is fully organised, with umbrellas and loungers covering most of the area. However, there are several free spots for those who would rather bring their own towel and beach umbrella. There are two bars and cafés on the beach, providing snacks, water or coffee. Beach parties are often organised in the evening, so don’t be in a hurry to leave - the fun begins as the sun goes down, with what is admittedly one of the most impressive sunsets in Crete.
Watersports are available on the beach, while there is also an area for beach volley.
