October 12, 2020

Have you ever thought that COVID-19 might lock us all up again? Well, let’s not waste our precious time. Are you on holidays in Crete? Well, Kissamos is a very well known place to stay if you want to stay away from the touristic spots of Chania Prefecture. In Kissamos you have everything! Great food, awesome local people and most importantly Balos beach and Gramvousa Island are closer than you think.

How to Go to Balos and Gramvousa?

Pick the freshest solution for your way to go to Balos and Gramvousa! You can easily rent a RIB boat from Kissamos, Kastelli port for your boat trip to Balos. It’s a minimum of half an hour ride, not in a traffic jam, not in the heated roads. Rather you will be on board of our boat meeting amazing local people, on a skippered boat rental from Kasteli, or you can hire a bareboat and also  explore not only Balos, but also Gramvousa, the old fortress and deserted island.

If the weather allows it, you can even ask our skipper to take you to Falassarna or Elafonissi by boat. So, you are actually killing two birds with one stone, or we would say four birds. Balos, Gramvousa, Falassarna and Elafonissi. Do you know how long it would take you to visit all these places by car? At least 3 days one for each beach. Let’s not forget that you cannot even go to Gramvousa by car, since it’s an island opposite to Balos Lagoon.
