Stalida is primarily known for its beautiful beaches. But it also serves as a starting point for exploring some of the natural wonders of Crete, including the breathtaking Balos Lagoon. A Balos Lagoon tour from Stalida promises an unforgettable adventure, allowing visitors to discover the mesmerizing beauty of this unique destination.

The journey typically begins with a comfortable bus transfer from Stalida to Kissamos. Kissamos is a coastal town located on the northwest coast of Crete. From there, participants board a boat that will cruise along the coastline. The route provides stunning views of the Cretan landscape. The boat journey itself is an integral part of the experience, as passengers can soak in the Mediterranean sun and enjoy the refreshing sea breeze.

Balos Lagoon

As the boat approaches the Balos Lagoon, anticipation builds among the passengers. The first glimpse of the lagoon is truly awe-inspiring—a shallow, turquoise lagoon surrounded by a white sandy beach and bordered by dramatic cliffs. The contrasting colors of the water and the beach create a postcard-perfect scene that leaves visitors in awe.

Upon reaching the Balos Lagoon, the boat anchors, allowing participants to disembark and spend several hours exploring this natural paradise. The lagoon is renowned for its shallow, crystal-clear waters, making it an ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling. The unique geography of the area, with its islets and sandbars, adds to the charm and uniqueness of Balos.

Visitors can also take a leisurely stroll along the sandy beach, capturing the beauty of the surroundings from different perspectives.

Our tours include an optional lunch served on the boat.

After a day of exploration and relaxation, the boat sets sail back to Kissamos. There the bus transfer awaits to take participants back to Stalida. The return journey provides an opportunity to reflect on the beauty of Balos Lagoon and the memories created during this enchanting day trip.

A Balos Lagoon tour from Stalis is not just a sightseeing excursion; it’s a sensory experience that immerses visitors in the natural wonders of Crete, leaving them with lasting memories of turquoise waters, sandy beaches, and the unparalleled beauty of Balos.
