“Balos beach is probably the most famous beach in Crete island. Every year, hundreds of people with their families or their friends visit this place, to enjoy the white sand and the clear water on this amazing landscape. Balos is located at the bay of Kissamos after Chania, 117 km from the city of Rethymno and there are two options to go there: 1) By car, which is not recommended, as most of the rent a car companies do not provide insurance cover, because the road is awful, full of rocks & cliffs and moreover you need to walk about 40 minutes down the mountain, from the parking area to the beach. 2) The easiest and most recommended way is to go to Kissamos and take the boat trip to Balos. You can book your tickets online and park your car at the parking of the port. The boat also takes you to Gramvousa island, opposite to Balos beach which is a very beautiful place with a shipwreck on the beach.”

“Seitan Limania like Kalypso beach, also used to be a pirate fjord in the old years. It is located somewhere behind the airport of Chania, 80km from the city of Rethymno. It’s natural beauty in addition to the turquoise water attract every year plenty of people. There is a lot of space to park your car, but because you have to walk down the cliff, it is not suitable for babies or people who are not 100% able to walk. Something else that attracts a lot of people, are the goats that live there and everybody is taking photos with them.”

“Elafonissi is located 76 kilometers southwest of Chania and five kilometers south of Chrysoskalitissa Monastery, at the southwest end of Crete. Elafonissi looks like an island, because the peninsula at the point that connects with Crete "breaks" and gives the feeling of a separate island. The area has been included in the Natura Protected Areas and is a refuge for the Careta careta turtle. It is strictly forbidden to cut plants from there or to take sand even from the shore! In Elafonissi you will get to the road from Kissamos in about an hour even by bus from KTEL. The road to Elafonissi is narrow and full of turns, but the beauty of the landscape will compensate for you. More choices for accommodation and food can be found in Chryssoskalitissa, located five kilometers north and there you will see the famous Monastery of Panagia Chrysoskalitissa. The beach stretches over long stretches, mainly east of the lagoon. It is organized, it has everything (and special parking space) and especially during the summer months is flooded by people. The shallow lagoon is ideal for young but also for the grown-ups who are willing to play with sand and water! At some points the color of the sand is not white but pink, which is created by the millions of broken shells you will see there. The shores of Elafonisi are more remote and if you want to be a bit more isolated, walk until you find the cove that suits you. The tour of the island is easy to walk.”

“The famous lagoon of Balos is located approximately 56km northwest of Chania and 17km northwest of Kissamos, formed between the Cape Gramvousa and the small Cape Tigani and below the range of Platiskinos. Balos is surely the mostly photographed beach in Crete, a very favorite subject of all tourist guides for Greece. It is no coincidence that Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited Balos with their private yacht many years ago. Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty and the beautiful exotic scenery. During the summer, Balos is visited by thousands of people, who arrive mostly by the ferries running from Kissamos port. If you do not like crowds, you’d better avoid to visit the beach in July and August. Also, a perfect idea is to arrive at Balos in the morning, before the boats arrive from Kissamos. These few hours of remoteness in such a heavenly place will remain etched in your memory forever. The lagoon of Balos has white sand and exotic white, vivid blue and turquoise waters. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal for young children. In many places the sand has a lovely pinkish color, because of millions of crushed shells. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon, the water is deeper and colder, ideal for a snorkeling. The lagoon and the wider area, with rare species of flora and fauna, are protected under the Natura 2000 program. Eleonora falcons, shags and cormorants nest in the caves of the area. Moreover, the area is a shelter for the protected monk seal and the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta). Despite the protection, some canteens and umbrellas have appeared on the beach in recent years. You can buy water from there and from the bars of the ferries.”

“Vai beach is unique because of the palms existing there. Pirates eating walnuts are maybe responsible for the creation of the small forest.”

“It is certainly the most famous beach in south Crete, accepting thousands of visitors every summer. During the 60s and 70s, it was a favorite destination for the hippies. On the banks of the Grand River there is a large colony of Theophrastus palm trees, which give the region a sense of a tropical landscape. The river, forming a small lake, 500m long, before emptying into the sea, has water all year round. You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm trees, and start ascending in the beautiful canyon. You can swim in the cold ponds formed in the gorge. A big fire in 2010 burnt almost everything of this paradise, but paradoxically the palmgrove recovered most of its damage.”

The beach is filled with cedars and sanddunes, reminding of tropical Lebanese beaches. The beach is protected to some point from the winds that usually blow in the neighboring Elafonissos.
