The daily cruise to Gramvousa and Balos is a must for your vacation in Crete. An earth paradise west of Chania, in the area of Kissamos, waits you for a relaxing cruise departing daily from the port of Kissamos.

During your trip with destination Gramvousa island first, and as the boat sails next to the coast, you will have the opportunity to observe the geological phenomenon where the ground is lifting 6-9 meters over the sea level. This has become due to a strong earthquake 2000 years ago.

After one-hour trip, the boat will reach the pirate island of Gramvousa, with an old legend saying that pirates have hidden a treasure in the island. A Venetian castle is built on a steep rock 137m high, and you can visit it after 15-20min hiking. A unique landscape and a magnificent view from the castle, make it worth visiting. Before the boat departs to Balos you will have the time for a quick swim to the clear blue waters of Gramvousa.

The next stop, after 15 min. is the famous lagoon of Balos. Here the landscape will fascinate you.  A white sand which covers the area gives to the shallow waters a clear emerald color. The boat will stay for 1.5 hour in the open sea of Balos where you can enjoy a swim.
