Balos lagoon is one of the most famous beaches in the world, thanks to its rich blue-green waters and the color of the sand. It is located on the north-west coast of Crete, 56 km from Chania city or 17 km from Kissamos. Balos is most easily accessible by boat, which departs from the port of Kissamos.

If you wish to reach this magnificent beach by car, you have to keep in mind that the greatest part of the drive is on a rough dirt road and you will need to walk the last kilometer. In that case, the wild natural beauty of the landscape, the rocks and the hillsides around you will definitely reward you.
