In the west end of the Chania’s prefecture and in a distance 59 km from the town of Chania is Falasarna. Also that was a port of ancient Polirinia that was independent, cutting her own coins which were depicting on one side the head of a woman and on the other the word FA between a trident.

Due to the high security of the port and the impregnable fortress Polirinia became an important commercial and shipping centre. The entrance of the town was by sea. She was built in levels, as evidenced by the walls that have been saved until today. Today the port and the channel are 100 meters away from the sea, because the beach has been lifted. The Falasarna’s beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful of Crete with fine sand and length of 3 km. Her position at the west end helps her have the most beautiful sunset.
