Enjoy a wonderful day sailing the waters of Crete on this excursion to Gramvousa and Balos Lagoon. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy these dreamy enclaves.
Gramvousa & Balos Lagoon Day Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel at 7:45 am and set off by bus to Kissamos Port. From there, we'll set sail for a wonderful day in Greek waters.
For about an hour, we'll admire the beautiful scenery of the coast of Chania until we reach Balos Beach, a Greek paradise. Here, you'll have two and a half hours to relax on the dreamy pinkish sand and swim in the pristine turquoise water. It comes as no surprise that it's one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete!
Then, we'll cruise over to Gramvousa, also known as the "pirate island." We'll anchor here for an hour and a half, giving you plenty of time to explore the island at your leisure and take a relaxing swim in its crystal clear waters. Also on the island is an impressive Venetian fortress, which you can visit to learn more about Gramvousa and its curious nickname.
At the end of the tour, we'll return to Kissamos Port. From there, you'll be taken back to your hotel in Chania by bus, arriving around 4 pm.
