Stalos beach in Western Crete

The nice, sandy beach of Kato Stalos is located about 8km west of the Chania city centre and 4km east of the bustling Platanias. What we like about this beach is easy parking if you go by car, a great view of the Agioi Theodoro island and the beautiful sea lilies (Pancratium maritimum). You can find a map to pinpoint the location of the beach here.

We prefer the eastern part of this long beach since it is a little quieter and we enjoy playing with our dogs there early in the morning before sunbathers and beach fanatics settle in for the day. Sun chairs and umbrellas are available for rental, although we prefer the old-school “throw a towel down” style.
