Just 20 minutes from Kissamos, Falasarna beach is a sunbathers' paradise with its golden sand and crystal clear blue-green waters. Nestled between sheer cliffs, this beach offers stunning views of the Mediterranean, making it ideal for both relaxing and exploring.

The best way to visit it is with an unforgettable Falasarna and Balos tour including transfer from and to your hotel and a meal.

Prepare to be amazed by the natural beauty of Balos beach. This remote paradise is only accessible by boat or a scenic hike with white sand and crystal clear emerald waters. Admire the contrast of the turquoise sea with the rugged cliffs and rocky islands, making it a must-visit destination for nature lovers.

The easiest way to go is with a private cruise to Balos and Gramvousa. If you want to go by road the road leading there is not paved and after parking your vehicle you have to hike.
