About The Place

Balos – the most beautiful beach in Crete located near the Gramvousa peninsula in Greece. The beach is made up of white sand and beautiful blue colored water. There is a stunning island of Gramvousa in front of Balos beach while Mount Geroskinos is situated just behind. As soon as you start walking to the beach, you can witness surreal views in your surrounding. The beach is widely famous for its crystal clear water, and that's why it appears on several advertising brochures of Greece. A visit to this beach is MUST when you are in Crete with your loved ones!

Before You Go, Tips & Guide

You can catch a ferry from Kissamos to the Balos beach. Alternatively, you can also access the beach by 4WD on a dirt road along the Cape Gramvousa from Kaliviani. Though you can visit the beach at any time of the year, we recommend you to plan your trip in the summer season. As the beach is usually crowded in summer, especially in July and August, we recommend you to visit in the early hours to enjoy some quiet time. You can come on your own or book any tour to the beach along with some fun activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving at the Balos Lagoon.
