Not as I recall. However, it was my absolute favorite beach on Crete. And it's spelled in various ways, but with an "r" not an "m" -- Falassarna.

Mykoniatis is right. It is Elafonissos that has some pink in the sand and yes you can see it. Falasarna is also a beautiful beach but it had some tar in the sand and you had to watch wear you stepped when I was there. Personally I liked Elafonissos better. The water is warmer as it is shallow.

Yes, it's Elafonissos that has some small amount of pink sand on the beaches, you can wade across.
