Hills to Sea
Being a small resort, Stalis naturally merges into the adjacent areas of Malia and Hersonissos. The main stretch of sand that’s perfect for kicking and relaxing upon is Zervas Beach, which is divided into two sections. The western end is less crowded and more suited to families, while the eastern end is close to the town and all its amenities, making it ideal for those who want to explore more of the local area. The coast road is the main thoroughfare in the resort and is lined with shops and restaurants. If you’re looking at Stalis holidays as a way to really get away from it all, choose a place up in the hills where the views are spectacular, yet still boasting only a short stroll to the town centre. There are a variety of different hotels to suit a range of tastes and budgets.
Stalis is a popular spot for Irish visitors, so there are plenty of Irish bars in the vicinity if you need a taste of home. There are plenty of traditional tavernas too, and a good selection of international bars and cuisine for those who fancy some variety.

Stalis holidays are very much geared towards families, with plenty of water sports, water parks, golf clubs and similar attractions in the general area.
