Stalos is a village in the municipality of Chania on the island of Crete in Greece. Stalos is located on the island's northern coast and is a popular tourist destination known for its long sandy beach and crystal-clear waters.

The history of the name Stalos is not entirely clear, but it is believed to have been derived from the Greek word "stalls," which means "droplet" or "drop." Therefore, the name may have been chosen due to the presence of freshwater springs in the area, which produce droplets of water that can be seen on plants and rocks.

Stalos has a long and rich history, dating back to ancient times when Minoans, the earliest recorded civilization on the island of Crete, inhabited the area. The village has also been occupied by various other groups throughout history, including the Byzantines, the Venetians, and the Ottomans.

Today, Stalos is a peaceful and picturesque village that attracts tourists worldwide who come to enjoy its beautiful beaches, traditional tavernas, and stunning natural surroundings.
