Balos Beach

Located on the north-western tip of Crete, Balos beach is a strip of sand and lagoon stretching between the Gramvousa Peninsula and the headland of Cape Tigani. The landscape of Balos is stunning with white / pink sand interspersed with turquoise pools all dominated by the bulk of cape Tigani. Despite the beach here being immensely popular there is a feeling of wilderness here - if you were to come before or after the last ferry from Kissamos had left this would be a very different place. A backdrop of rugged hillsides and the Island of Gramvousa just along the coast with its Medieval fortress.
