Our next excursion took us to the sweeping bay at Falasarna on the west coast of Crete. An amazing bay with a huge beach, backed by cliffs and agricultural land. The sea was crystal clear and looked really inviting if it hadn’t been for the howling wind. We took a little shelter at the northern end of the beach behind some sand dunes where we caught a few rays, relaxed and had an ice cream, before checking out the dirt track to the ancient ruins of Falasarna.
It was a nice day out and I think if we had visited the beach a little earlier in the season it would have been warmer and we could have had a dip in the sea and enjoyed the beach a little more, but it was fun all the same!
