Falassarna Beach was our first stop on the island of Crete. We flew into Chania airport and drove about an hour to the western coast. It is a long stretch of beach which is divided up into several parts, some quieter and more secluded than others.
We were told that we had just missed a week of rain (very unusual for Crete in this month) although it was still a bit cloudy. The next morning however it was all blue skies which made the water appear even clearer and more tropical like!
It was the first time my baby had been to the beach. He loved watching the waves come in.
