Description

Stalis is a rapidly expanding resort situated between its livelier neighbours, Malia and Hersonissos. With its vast expanse of beautiful sandy beach where water sports are plentiful, rather laid back atmosphere and easy access to its lively neighbouring resorts, Stalis really offers you the best of both worlds. With a number of lively bars and an excellent choice of restaurants and tavernas lining the beach, Stalis still maintains plenty of its Greek charm.
