BALOS BEACH – ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES OF THE WORLD

Here is another wonderful excursion you can do while on Crete. The Balos Beach, which is situated in the north-west side of the island, is one of the most beautiful landscapes, our nature has ever created! With its crystal clear turquoise waters, the fine white sand and the lagoon of the size of about 5 football fields (the depth of the lagoon varies between 20-50cm), it is a place to spend a fantastic day (or 2) with friends and family! The access to the beach though is not an easy task. You can drive till about 1km away from the beach, park and then walk down the cliff, however for the last 10 kms an SUV would be desired. Alternatively you can take the ship from Kissammos and off you jump in the water of Balos Beach in about an hour. Then after you have spent your day at the beach, you can take the next ship back to Kissammos, or you can take the ship which takes you to the little island of Gramvousa, the so called pirate island. Gramvousa hosts the remains of the fortress, which was built  in the 16th century from the venetians to defend the island from the Ottoman turks. If you don’t want to walk up the 1500 steps to reach the fortress, you can just sunbath at the beach, dive in the water or grab a lunch at the ship!
