Full description

Board a speedboat and travel from Kissamos towards Gramvousa Island. As you make your way along the shore, see the majestic Venetian Fortress of Gramvousa.

Continue to the famous exotic lagoon of Balos, perhaps the most photographed beach in Crete. Discover a beautiful natural landmark famous for its turquoise waters, wild natural beauty, and exotic scenery. In many places, the sand has a pink color while the sea is very shallow and warm.

Discover locations perfect for swimming and snorkeling during your stop at the lagoon. Have the boat for yourself and have your experienced local skipper show you around. Enjoy a fresh Cretan salad and seasonal fruit, as well as local wine and beverages, before heading back to Kissamos.

We were 4 people plus the captain. Excellent excursion, spacious but not luxurious boat, young captain very good, safe and professional. Lunch on board was simple but good (cheese, bread, fruit) and a bottle of white wine. The captain (Costat) made us discover the most beautiful beaches, according to our wishes and the weather that suited us. I invite you to take this tour if you want a nice, intimate excursion far from the tourist crowds Thank you
