Balos beach is one of the best beaches in Crete, a magical scenery that you should definitely visit once in a lifetime!

You could visit this beautiful beach by car or  with cruise boats!


Balos by car is a unique experience, takes a 30-40 min driving trip off-road and then a 30 min walking route with a breathtaking view of Balos!

Please note that on a hot Greek summer day, a 30 min walking distance is not so pleasant, so try to visit it early in the morning before also the cruise boats reach the beach!


Balos cruise is also a fantastic sea experience! There are a lot of options for cruise boats according to your budget and they depart from Kissamos port!

Balos cruises are most of the time combined with a visit to Gramvousa a beautiful island with crystal clear waters and a beautiful castle on the top!


Falassarna beach has the best sunset in Crete!

Falassarna is just 20 min driving away from Kissamos. A very long beach with many options from fancy beach bars to natural spots that only a few people know!

The beach has crystal clear waters and also pink sand occasionally!

Don’t miss the fantastic sunset and enjoy the view of the sun setting in the sea and the amazing colors of the sky!

On the area of the beach, you can find small family own taverns with local dishes and fantastic prices! 


Elafonissi is one of the best-rated beaches all over the world!

The beach is 50-60 min by car from Kissamos and has an amazing mountain view route through small villages and  Topolia gorge!

At the beach, you can find a parking spot close to the sea and then you have the option to use the beach sunbeds or to walk a little bit further on the other side of the small island!

The sunset in Elafonissi is a beautiful experience but please note that the driveway to Kissamos is a long trip so don’t stay at the beach until is dark!!
