General information


The famous lagoon of Balos is located approximately 56km nortwest of Chania and 17 km northwest of Kissamos, formed between the Cape Gramvousa and the small Cape Tigani and below the range of Platiskinos. Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty anf the beautiful exotic scenery. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal for young children. In many places the sand has a lovely pinkish colour, because of millions of crushed shells. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon , the water is deeper and colder, ideal for snorkeling. The lagoon and the wider area, with rare species of flora and fauna, are protected under the Natura 2000 program.


The island of Imeri Gramvousa is located 2 miles northwest of the Balos lagoon. Gramvousa is famous for its historical Venetian fortress, which still stands at the height of 137m , over the beach. The fort had also been used by pirates; one legend tells that there is a great treasure buried in the island. Also the old wreck that was abandoned many years ago near the beach , has become an characteristic part of the landscape.
