The port is an 'umbrella' term covering both the new Heraklion Ferry Port and the old Venetian Harbour. The 'Castello a Mare' more widely known as Koules is a significant walled structure marking the entrance to the old Venetian port. The fortress dates back to the 16th century and is presumed that Cretan rebels were tortured in its underground chambers by mercenaries of the Ottoman Empire during the times of Crete's occupation. The Heraklion old town is located nearby, thus after a visit to the Fortress travellers can enjoy a walk through the vibrant streets of the city or taste some delicacies prepared by the friendly and hospitable locals.

The heart of Stalis can be found in the 5km long coastal road, which is lined up with several kinds of shops and establishments. During sunset time, a walk along the beach is a 'must do' for all visitors. The beach itself stretches for several kilometres, up to the eastern part of Malia. Moreover, the beach is sandy and the waters are shallow making it ideal for younger visitors. Also, the beach diverges into two parts and is separated because of a short rocky cape in the middle. Stalis beach is very well organized and offers several amenities such as, sun loungers, umbrellas, lifeguards, beach volley courts, showers, beach bars, water sports, changing rooms and every other facility you might need. Stalis is also famous for its Cretan date palm plantation, which is one of the few in Heraklion prefecture.

There you can just unwind in one of the small family hotels and have some terrific long walks along the coast or simply sit in a coffee house and just watch the world go by.
For adrenaline junkies and hiking enthusiasts, the Bulgarian trail that ascends all the way up to Mohos offers an excellent opportunity for a trek. The trail was named after some Bulgarian POVs from WW2 who were forced to build it. The total distance to Mohos is 5 km but the trail itself is strenuous, always on the incline and with no shade, thus making it a challenging hike. On the way, you will be able to cross a pedestrian bridge above the highway and a few kilometres away you will reach the monastery of the Virgin Mary. Once you reach Mohos you can enjoy a well-earned coffee in one of the local establishments on the main square. Alternatively, the Mohos trail can be done in reverse or descend through another Mohos trail towards Malia.
The main difference of Stalida from Hersonissos and Malia is that this place is ideal for families. You will find peaceful small hotels where you can relax, have a walk and enjoy a terrific view of the bay of Hersonissos.
