Rethymno - Gramvousa Island - Balos Lagoon

Gramvousa Island is a little paradise. It is a unique place, a great part of our island, with beautiful beaches and fantastic views. Here and in the lagoon of Balos you will have the opportunity to see the most beautiful places you have ever seen in your life.

In the Gramvousa Island you can swim into the crystal clear turquoise water and also you can visit the famous Venetian fortress (built in the 16th century). By there, you can take a lot of fantastic photographs and admire the incomparable view.

We board the Gramvousa Ferry from Kissamos Port. Enjoy meals or snack which you can find in the ferry's kitchen. Feel comfortable on a deck chair or in the lounge. On the way we see the elevation of the land along the cliff edges of Crete. This elevation has happened over 2000 years. The ferry makes a close pass of an abandoned pirates cave.

We arrive to the island of Gramvousa after approximately 45 minutes. Here you will admire the Venetian Castle. During the Ottoman rule the Cretans had made a last stand here against the Turks. The views from this point are spectacular. Also you can go for a swim in the crystal clear waters.

Afterwards, we head towards the pristine Balos Lagoon for a swim in the waters that start with the coral sands and gradually end in the deepest blue. Here you will have plenty of time for relax.

At the port of Kissamos you can take excellent photos as the sun will be behind you as you look out to the scenery of the island.
