  • Most West ejected Peninsula on the island of Crete, completely uninhabited, with intact nature, therefore, is a natural reserve for many species of plants and animals. When it comes to Crete-is an island located in the Mediterranean Sea and when it comes to the surface had to be considered the superiority of only four others since it is the fifth largest. Crete is the eight thousand three hundred and thirty-five square feet of a wide variety of places, ranging from the rocky coast to the mountains, gorges and valleys. Cruise to the island of Imeri Gramvoussa and Balos lagoon, along with plażowaniem, a 7-hour and cost about 25 euro. The morning is sunny sail along the shores of the peninsula. Along the way you will see how sea level has fallen over the last few thousand. years. On the rocks that remained distinctive, darker color. We leave the beauty of the sea in peace and go to conquer the island. At the top of the steep cliffs, 137 m above sea level, rising to attach to the Venetian castle built, according to the Guide, in the 16th century. When Crete fought for liberation from the Ottoman occupation, supposedly 3 thousands of revolutionaries, for three years, used the island as a refuge. To solve the problem of food shortages took up piracy. The Castle-fortress can be reached by steep path, which takes about 25 minutes one way. The whole slope planted with beautiful agaves and vegetation. The Castle-fortress can be reached by steep path, which takes about 20 minutes (one way). Balos is just 15-20 minutes from the island of Gramvoussa. It is also a protected area and the vessels do not have the ability to beat, because the waters of the lagoon are floating emergency motor boats, which are used to transport passengers to shore. The water in these shallow hollows is a wonderfully warm and she is definitely ok. 35-40 degrees which encourages. I encourage all residing on the island of Crete to visit this paradise on Earth as they say the local inhabitants of Crete. I recommend to all who are on the island of Crete is a great place!

  • The climb to the fort is very difficult. You have to be very well prepared physically, because many people give up in the middle of the climb. But when you get up there, what you see is simply wonderf...  more »
  • It is an uninhabited islet near the lagoon of Balos. On it you can visit the ruins of a 16th-century Venetian fortress. In the ruins one can see statues dating from the Venetian rule. From above you can see a beautiful landscape with the unspoiled beach at Balos. From there it enchants the clarity of marine waters.
