Falasarna sunset

We read in more than one place that Falarsarna, western Crete, had sunsets `better than Santorini'. We decided to put it to the test.

It was interesting to contemplate that somewhere. a long way over that horizon, was Malta, then Tunisia, then Spain.

Falasarna itself is a pleasant place with pretty waters. I personally wouldn't make a special trip for the beach itself, but it's also nice.

It has a pretty outlook to a small island offshore. There are also some interesting diversions including Roman ruins.

As for the `better than Santorini' sunset claim - in the end I can't judge as I haven't been to Santorini! But it was certainly atmospheric, viewed with a refreshment in hand at a local restaurant.

Thanks Heike, I had hoped for something special to come into view at the right moment, like a massive flock of birds or something, but it was just sun, sky, water!
