|The village and the beach of Stalos on Crete|
Stalos is a coastal village at 8 km west of Chania, that lies along the "Old National Road" that runs between Chania and Kissamos. In this part of Crete there are long sandy beaches and so accommodations for tourists have been created here. The part of the village at the beach is called Kato (lower) Stalos and higher up - 1 kilometers away and 150 meters higher - you find the original Stalos, which is the older part of town. This is called Pano (higher) Stalos. In Stalos are many facilities such as supermarkets, taverns, shops and there is some night life. On the beach of Stalos you can rent umbrellas and sunbeds. The beach is quite large so everybody should be able to find a place for himself. From Stalos there are regular bus connections to Chania town (every 15 minutes).
From the beach of Stalos you look out over the uninhabited islet Agii Theodori. According to legend this island was never there and is originally a sea monster that was petrified because of the prayers of the islanders. In this tradition the large opening on the side of the island is not a cave but in fact the mouth of the monster. The island has always been uninhabited, except in the Venetian period, when the Venetians have built two fortresses on it and turned it into a military base. In an attack by the Turks in 1645 the island was unable to withstand the violence of the invading army. The Venetians fled to the highest fortress and blew himself up. After that the island became uninhabited again. Nowadays you will only find some wild animals on it.
