Falasarna

Falasarna beach is located at the west part of Crete and is one of the most beautifull beaches on the Island. The area around Falassarna is magnificent and is a protected nature reserve, also here you can witness one of the best sunset in Crete !I

Falasarna main beach is ideal for Surf activities. The sandy beach with waist high water is a perfect playground for the first steps in wave riding. When the wind is west, north west, there are waves from 0,5m to 2m high. The spot is a beach break with sandy seafloor and waist to shoulder high deep water.

At the south side of Phalasarna, next to a small fish-boat harbor, you will enjoy some of the best freestyle conditions found in all Greece, with flat water and plenty of wind. On the left side there is a large free space for slalom and freeride conditions while on the right side there is another beach with a bump and jump onshore area for those who seek wavier conditions.

When the location is exposed to the famous ‘meltemi’ north-east winds of the Aegean sea with off-shore winds blowing force 4 to force 6 and sometimes to force 7 beauforts. From May to October meltemi winds blow from the Aegean sea turning Crete into a windsurfing paradise.

Speed addicts, freestylers, and beginners can enjoy the best conditions for them in different terrain. It is a friendly place for your non-surfing partners too as they can go to the main beach to relax, or have a delicious lunch in the traditional fish tavern in front of the beach.

Right on the main beach of Falasarna you can find SURF ISLAND CLUB  with a big range of windsurf, surfboards, sup, bodyboards for all levels and needs. You can also have lessons and surf trips around the area.
