The famous lagoon of Balos is about 56 km northwest of Chania and 17 km northwest of Kissamos. It is a shallow sandy beach formed between Hersonissos of Gramvousa and the smaller Cape of Tigani, under the imposing mountain of Geroskinou.Balos is definitely the most photographed beach of Crete, a very favorite theme of all tourist guides in Greece. It is famous for its turquoise waters, wild natural beauty and exquisite exotic scenery. In the summer, the beach is flooded daily by hundreds of visitors, who mostly arrive by boat from Kissamos.
The lagoon of Balos has white sand and exotic white, deep blue-green and turquoise waters. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal destination for young children as well. In many places the sand has a lovely pink color, coming from the crushed shell shells. Beyond the rocks the waters are deeper and cooler, ideal for a mask. Like the surrounding area, they are part of the Natura protection program, with rare species of flora and fauna.
