  • To reach the site of Balos Beach which is located on the North Western tip of the island, a track brittle, pebbly with rocks coming out of the ground, wide enough even to be exceeded or the same if you want because it rolls to the place not... Good advice, to visit the West coast of the island, do not hesitate to rent a 4 x 4 or a car with chassis lift, you can pretty quickly find yourself stuck on a rock and touch the sump oil, and c "is the big Gallery... we ran into an A category car which took the galleys, the tiny city... This is not at all recommended here! It's even unconsciousness... 7km away and 45 minutes anyway because we drive 30 km not more but the view of this wild coast is beautiful! stop to take pictures, goats can make their appearances from beneath the cliff and and love the photos ^^ arrived on site, parking very rugged with stoned etc... go there early around 10 even in the low season may or October... it's quickly packed... otherwise it's parking lot to the tear along the cliff without protection or along the rock wall that is not protected in the case of rockfall and this happens often, we've seen a big on the hood of a car when leaving... Once parked, 2km walk before the runs of stairs that has more than a good 100aines of markets made slippery with sand, forget the stroller, take baby backpack because in my arms it's dangerous, some passages have a little technical, do not tap, sports with good studded shoes or hiking shoe the ideal... Keep juice up especially in full sun, it's very hard for people in poor physical condition... Several people were HS back and down it was hard too... Balos is earned as much for the access road and the parking by the final approach on the white sand and turquoise waters... Before down all these stairs, contemplate the panoramic view from the top, it of just beautiful... and down the framework and masterful, a small sandbank of 100 m between 2 side of sea with a more restless sitting and the other very relaxing with water up to the knees and this far enough! Sun loungers and parasols are available for very cheap and low season all negotiates... Go around 10: 00, if you are to Chania, go for 8:30 max, 30 minutes drive and then 45 minutes of brittle paths, and 15 good minutes for the sharpest in markets, leave at 4 pm, the lift is much more quietly after spending the day on this exceptional site... back to Chania for 18:30... I attached 40 photos in this story, I hope to have given you want to go, don't under estimate not your means of locomotion, in couple, the bike is ideal, especially not scooter... as a family 4 x 4 is the top and we did the right thing, while a little more expensive but suddenly you beings alone to isolated on this West Coast wild of Crete and it is so very profitable! Good holiday, Cédric of Rennes; )

  • This is a lovely little mini resort along the east coast of Samos. Beautiful crystal clear sea ideal for swimming. Saw a pod of dolphins off the coast. Beautiful!  more »
