Tour Details

Heraklion Gramvousa Balos Tour

? Every Monday, Friday | Available from July till September

🕛 Duration: 16 hours approximately

An amazing day in paradise and a great adventure for all the family! This excursion leads you to the western point of the Island. West of Kissamos and north of the beautiful village of Kaliviani, stretches the impressive Gramvousa Peninsula.  Starting from the port of Kissamos, followed by a pleasant voyage, we will reach Gramvousa where the ancient shipyard of Tersanas will draw your attention, as well as the geological phenomenon of land elevation by 6 to 9m above the sea level. Here you will have the opportunity to either enjoy the beach with crystal clear water and the amazing view of the never ending sea lagoon; or climb on the top of the steep rock to see the Venetian castle.

Afterwards we take a 2nd short boat trip to the fabulous lagoon of Balos, a shallow and warm water lagoon and one of Crete’s loveliest spots. Here you can enjoy plenty of time of swimming in the inviting crystal clear waters of western Crete and sunbathing at the white sandy beach.
