Soft white sand, clear warm water and beautiful views combine to make this beach one of the best in the country. It’s becoming more popular, but it somehow doesn’t feel too crowded, but rather remains a relaxed, relatively quiet place to enjoy nature, take a romantic stroll and perhaps luck out with an awe-inspiring sunset. Falassarna or Phalasarna, is an exquisite jewel on the tip of Crete’s West coast, some 120km (75 miles) west of our hotel in Rethymno.
