The beach of Falasarna

 

I have been a fan of Falasarna for 30 years. Well, sort of...

Before the greenhouses were built (was it 20 years ago or longer?) the place looked idyllic with the few small islands floating in the turquoise waters. You could only reach Falasarna via a dirt road, there was one small taverna and if I remember correctly it had a couple of rooms for rent. But Falasarna rarely saw any visitors at all.
If you could find a wind free day it was paradise. Unfortunately wind free days in Falasarna are quite rare and when the wind blows the fine sand tends to sandblast you. Not nice.

Nowadays the area of Falasarna has a lot of greenhouses so the landscape looks far from idyllic. There are quite a few hotels, rooms and apartments but it seems still pretty low key. The wind still blows on most days but despite this problem the beach seems to have become quite popular and can get really crowded at weekends. The sea is still incredibly beautiful and it is probably the reason why so many people are willing to brave the wind.

The photo above was taken in the morning on a week day (last wek) which is why it still looks very quiet.
