Balos Lagoon

Balos Lagoon

One of the most impressive landscapes of Chania, Balos is a massive rock in the sea, “connected” to the opposite coast with a shallow lagoon where the sand forms impressive designs.

The shallow waters in the lagoon of Balos are either blue or turquoise.
Everywhere there are small shells that in many places make the sand look pink, while the scattered rocks give a special touch to the scenery.


Balos is located in the northwest part of the province of Chania, at the Cape of Gramvousa, 65 kilometers from Lotos Luxury Apartments.
There are two ways to approach it, one by boat from Kissamos, and the other by road. The dirt road starts from Kaliviani and after about 8 Km reaches as far as the edge of the mountain above Balos, where you will go down the path that is 20 min from the beach admiring the amazing view!
