  • The reviews that appear to Balos beach are not related to the beach of samos but that of Crete. Is there a balos beach on samos is in front of the hotels but it is accessible by car and is a nature reserve. Is a normal Beach

  • First, do yourself a favor and don't listen to anyone who tells you to take the boat and come by sea because the road that passes through the mountains is impractical. It isn't, it's just a little rough, but driving slowly and with a little care you can enjoy breathtaking views and it will come without any problem to the wonderful mountain path leading to the Balos Bay. 20-30 minutes of walking in a mountainous landscape typical of Greece will allow you to fully enjoy this experience and to see also some nice little goat (a must!). Once the route (slightly tiring but worth it) you get to the beach itself, and you will be rewarded the effort: the side which can be reached through the mountain trail is the most beautiful and clean the Bay, as well as the less busy, as the hordes of tourists who arrive by sea landed on the opposite side , which soon became uninhabitable in the middle of the day. Tip: bring an umbrella because the equipment is scarce in Balos, especially on the less traveled to the Bay.
