Balos Lagoon is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Greece with a unique beach full of many different sea shells, where you can have a fantastic swim in waters so crystal clear, you will think you are dreaming. Leaving Chania harbour we are enjoying the ride while heading to secluded bays. After about an hour we reach Balos Lagoon - before the big ferries arrive full of people - so we can peacefully enjoy a refreshing break in the majestic blue lagoon. After Balos we continue to Gramvousa Island and the small port of Gramvousa with the famous castle built in 1579 by the Venetians at the highest point of the island, on top of a steep, 137-metre-high rock. Its majestic beauty combined with the panoramic view of Balos lagoon and the legend of hidden pirate treasure linked to it, are good reasons to put on comfortable shoes and take the 20-minute walk that will get you up there. Here you can also swim in the beautiful crystal clear waters. Leaving the Gramvousa Island and Balos Lagoon we follow the same route back close to the Rocky Mountains where the views are breathtaking, small secluded bays are ideal for quick dives until we reach Menies beach for another swim stop where the privacy and the panoramic views helps you to relax far away from crowded beaches. On the way back to Chania old harbour our last swim stop takes place to Theodorou island, a small declared protected park by the state famous for the protection of Cretan Ibex "Kri-Kri". Crystal clear waters with the wild beauty of the island provides an ideal last stop foe swimming before we return back to Chania old Harbour.
