Dive into waters of three seas, count all the blue shades and take a look at the paradize as it is.
How to take a swim in three seas of the Mediterranean on Crete
Balos beach and blue lagoon nearby are the most beautiful places in Greece. No wonder, here three seas meet - the Aegean Sea, the Libyan Sea and the Ionian Sea. Take a close look at a crystal smooth surface of water – you’ll see plenty of blue shades.

By the way a lot of years ago Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited the beach on their own yacht.

How to do?

1. Go to Kissamos port, here you can reach the beach on a boat. Also you can get here by car, the road is not an easy one, but driving a car you'll admire the bay from the height and it is really worth it.
2. You can't get right to the beach by car, but at the parking lot you can take a donkey-taxi.
3. On the beach you can take a deckchair, but you won't find any cafes here - just pristine nature.

How much?

€ 20 - boat from the Kissamos port to Balos bay.
€ 2.5 - bus to the beach from Kissamos
€ 5 - donkey-taxi to the beach
