Beaches · Nightlife · Outdoor Activities
Stalis, or "Stalida" as the locals call it, sits on Crete's northern coastline and attracts mostly sun-starved tourists from Europe's colder climates. For most of its history, the town remained a sleepy coastal settlement almost exclusively dependent on farming and agriculture. Today Stalis' economy relies on tourism, its sandy beaches a huge tourist attraction for visitors exploring this section of the island's coast. Stalis also provides quick and easy access to the surrounding ancient sites, which include well-preserved remains of the long-gone Minoan civilization. To learn more about the region's rich history, take a bus to the nearby city of Heraklion, famed for its fine museum of archaeology. Our Greece vacation planner allows you to schedule your trip to Stalis, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
