Holidays in Stalis

Located on the north-east coast of Crete, Stalis started out as a small, fishing village. However, once the world got wind of its white, powder-soft beach, the spectacularly sunny climate and the fantastic food, it blossomed into one of the island’s most popular holiday hotspots. Today, Stalis is a fabulous fusion of old-school Cretan charm and modern, tourist-friendly bars and restaurants, making it very popular with British families and couples looking to enjoy a fun-filled holiday. You’ll find a good range of attractions nearby: golfers will enjoy the superb setting and the challenging courses at the Crete Golf Club, while families can easily spend a day at the popular Acqua Plus water park. With plenty of shopping and things to do, booking your holidays to Stalis allows you to make your break just what you want it to be.

22-28 °C

If you want to make the most of the sunbathing opportunities on your holidays in Stalis, book between June and August, when the temperatures hops up into the thirties.

Approximately four hours

Flights land at Heraklion Airport (HER), which is just under 30km from the resort.

With a bustling promenade, superb examples of Venetian architecture and a sumptuous, sun-kissed beach, this destination has been attracting families and couples to its gently-shelving shores for decades. While it’s not as lively as resorts such as Malia, you’ll find there are plenty of things to do on your holiday. If you’re travelling with children, be sure to make a day of it at the Acqua Plus waterpark, Crete’s largest water park and packed with dozens of slides and swimming pools. If you’ve any fans of the five-iron in your party, be sure to pay a visit to the Crete Golf Club, home to the island’s only 18-hole golf course.

Holidays to Stalis offer plenty of opportunity for sunbathing. The beach is spacious, dusted with powder-soft sand, lined with palm trees, and lapped by clear, turquoise waters. The beach is studded with beach-brollies and sun loungers, making it the perfect place to relax. With a shallow-shelving shore and regular lifeguard patrols, little ones can splash safely in the waters and nervous toe-dippers can float a bit easier. If you want water sports, head west, towards Malia, where you ‘ll find an exciting variety, such as windsurfing, banana boats, and water-skiing.

If you’re looking for family attractions in Stalis, just 15 minutes’ bus ride away is Crete’s much-loved Acqua Plus water park. Crete’s largest, it offers a range of extreme slides for adrenaline junkies, such as the Tsunami, the Kamikaze, and Two Massive Black Holes! For younger children, there’s a series of lower-key rides and slides, such as the Lazy River and Octopus Waterslides. Grown-ups can relax in the hydro-massage pool, and watch their children on the inflatable castle or enjoying a bout of table tennis.

Holidays to Stalis will introduce you to a beautiful, seaside resort that has managed to retain much of its original character. Stroll around the town and you’ll find old Venetian streets dotted with tavernas and old churches following the curve of the coast. Ideally located for day trips, you can catch a boat out to the fascinating Spinalonga Island, a tiny islet off the coast that still bears the remains of its Venetian fortifications. For something that’s both educational and entertaining, visit the Aquaworld Aquarium in Hersonissos, a rescue centre for reptiles and marine creatures, where hands-on interaction is part of the program.
