  • First of all this Balos in Samos, NOT CRETE. So forget the dirt track and salt crystals. It's an OK beach with a quayside in the middle. One side is large stone and the other is shingle. A few taverna...  read more »
  • The directions to Balos Beach manages about only through a breathtaking ride the mountains of nature reserve. Gravel track and increases by 10% require little driving courage, especially if the vehicle has not an insurance without excess. Concerned at the highest point you get rewarded by a magnificent view on the lagoon, as soon as they brought steep descent behind 20 minutes. Then again a steep Stùck up on the lagoon. Definitely nothing for guests with a disability.

  • After we had done the rough 7 km road to the car park at 11:45 we were sent still available parking the last of the parking banksman on one. We put us in the migration to the beach. The view from above on the beautiful lagoon made up for the hustle and bustle. As we could see from above, but the beach was very crowded, an Ausflugssschiff was also just in sight, we saved us the descent. Frankly we had no desire to torment us between people with inflated air mattresses down and back. When we came back to the parking lot was also the right decision! When we started the trip at about 12.30 the parking not been sufficient was (approx. 150 cars). The cars were already about 200 meters is the way back along, with about 50 cars met on the way back us. Conclusion: nice beach but no longer a secret tip. If any really early to be there.
