Balos lagoon is located at the northwest of Crete, at Cape Gramvousa, near the town of Kissamos or Kastelli in the prefecture of Chania. The surreal beauty of this beach enchants anyone who visits it. The mixture of glowing white and pink sand and the incredible lush turquoise waters of the lagoon have brought it to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and every year it fills in the corresponding lists. It is located in the southwest part of the prefecture of Chania, near Kissamos, 55 km from the city of Chania and 17 km from Kissamos. It has a shallow sandy beach, the sea is warm with intense green blue and turquoise water and an amazing color in the sand which in many places, as in Elafonisi, has a wonderful pink color that has given it the countless broken shells.
