Valendi Daily Cruises Crete
Balos Lagoon

An hour away from the Kissamos port is one of the most talked about beaches in Crete, Balos Lagoon. Known for its crystal clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches this destination is also ideal for families as there are warm and shallow waters. For those who love snorkeling, there are cooler and deeper waters beyond the rocks. Nature lovers will appreciate the rare species of flora and fauna which is why Balos is part of the Natura Protection Program.


Gramvousa is famous for its beautiful beach, the wreck of a cargo ship, and its Venetian castle, built by the Venetians in 1579-1584, to help protect the island against the Ottomans. It is worth the hike up the hill to see the incredible view from the fortress. The beautiful beach with clean and crystal blue waters awaits you to enjoy it. The distance from Kissamos port where we depart is about 1 hour.
