BALOS IN CHANIA
Balos is probably the most famous and most photographed beach in Crete. It is located approximately 56 km northwest of Chania and only 17 km away from Kissamos. It is formed between the Cape Gramvousa and the small Cape Tigani. Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, the exotic scenery and the wonderful natural beauty.
Balos with its exotic white sand and turquoise waters offers a beach ideal for young children, since the sea is very shallow and warm. One trademark of the Balos beach is that in many places the sand has a lovely pinkish color due to the millions of crushed shells.
