The beaches of Stalis

The beaches of Stalis are not hard to find, no matter where your hotel is situated.  Find the beach road and of course the beaches with a myriad of beach bars adorning the sea front.

Sunbeds are payable to the beach boy or at the beach bar and usually cost anything from 3 to 5 euros for 2 with umbrella included.  Some beach bars like Slainte and Dwyer's beach Bar offer you a free drink or simple lunch included with the price of the sun bed.  

For great lunch by the beach try Africa bar, Themis Beach Bar, Beachcomber or Dwyer's Beach Bar.

There are a few private beaches depending on which hotel you stay but you are normally informed of this when you book your Stalis holiday.  A lot of the larger hotels like Anthousa beach and Cactus beach have their own private beach with beach bar.

At Holidays to Crete we are always looking for additional information on the beaches and of course extra photographs taken while you were on holiday.  If you think you can add extra comments or submit a nice photo or two of the beaches of Stalis then join us on facebook and comment and add pictures at anytime,.

Have a look below for some visitors videos to the beaches of Stalis or Stalida.  It gives you a general idea of what they are like and the layout of the beaches.

Fishing and Snorkelling in Stalis

A lot of people ask us the best place to go fishing in Stalis, well you need to head towards the far end of Stalis, this is heading towards Hersonissos, where the beach ends you will find a concrete area with one or two sunbeds on it.  This is the place where you will find a constant shoal of large mullet ranging from 1 to 3 lbs.

The best bait is bread flake, or you can try buying a local loaf of bread and use a heavy trotting waggler or bubble float and use a small piece of hard crust.  Be warned they are very hard to catch, even for mullet but the local fisherman are always happy to advise on tactics.

For the best places to snorkel in Stalis, choose the area pictured in the picture to the left, you will find some great underwater sights, from shoals of mullet and bream to more tropical type fish.  There are a few islands you can swim out too with a bit of reef life.  

If you have a keen eye you even spot some Octopus, but you have to be fast there's a local spear fisherman who will bring in bags of Octopus he catches in Stalis daily.  Snorkelling in Stalis is a must, if you've swam the whole of Stalis then head down to Malia port for some deeper sea snorkelling.

Stalis Daytime Guide

Stalis on the east side of Crete is famed for it’s excellent white sandy beaches, the beach stretches across the whole front of Stalis, dotted with beach bars your sure to find a beach that you will use throughout your holiday.  A point to note is that most beaches within Stalis have lifeguards on duty and the beach slowly shelves into the clear blue sea so there's less to worry about when taking your family to the beach.

If you don’t want to just sit with a cocktail on the beach there's plenty more to do on the beachfront from fishing to snorkelling and the coastline of Stalis can provide it all.  If its watersports you want information on then head towards Servas beach towards the west of Stalis.

As well as Stalis beach bar guides we have also provided the weather report on a daily basis for Stalis.  If your planning a holiday in Stalis then make sure you check the average temperatures for the month you intend to travel.
