Sandy beaches and sun drenched terraces

Stalis holidays offer a lively base to enjoy on the north coast of Crete. Stunning golden sandy beaches stretch for miles, with cafes and tavernas offering al fresco dining on their sun drenched terraces.

A truly picturesque resort

With a backdrop of lush green olive groves and the rugged mountains of Dikiti, Stalis is a truly picturesque resort. Spend your days lazing on the sun soaked beach or summon the energy to join in the many water sports on offer, water skiers and windsurfers surfers enjoy the thrill of the waves while the parascenders glide over head. Enjoy a boat trip to the historical fortress at Spinalonga or the beautiful island of Santorini with its volcanic crater and amazing sunsets. Take a cultural trip to the Minion Palace at Knossos and witness the remains of the oldest civilisation in Europe, or enjoy the Venetian history on offer at nearby Heraklion. A trip around town on the mini train will help you get your bearings and will also take you into Malia just along the coast.

Warm Greek welcome

Accommodation is a mixture of 5 star complexes and wonderful authentic Greek guest houses or self catering apartments. Nightlife whilst on your holidays in Stalis is based around the bars and tavernas located along the beach, with the odd disco thrown in for fun. If it’s a party atmosphere you are looking for then you need to head next door to Malia. Stalis holidays are ideal for families and couples, young and old alike. With the short transfer time from Heraklion airport, wonderfully warm Greek welcome, soft sandy beaches and lively nightlife, Stalis offers a little more than the quieter Greek resorts, yet a little less than the energy of Malia.
