Balos Lagoon is one of the best beaches all over Greece. White-pinkish sand and broken sea-shells. 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.
You may access the beach:
– on foot from Kalyvianni village in 3 hours.
– follow the dirt road from kalyvianni village to the parking place and then walk for 15 minutes.
The condition of the road is not good and it may prove a serious problem for your car.
The most convenient solution is by boat from Kissamos. The boat departs at 09:30 and returns at 16:00.You also visit the Gramvoussa Venetian fortress at the island of Imeri Gramvoussa.
