We had rented a small car. It was good for all other places, but a more powerful engine would be better for this trip. It is not difficult to get there if you are at least an average driver. Google led us to the Balos...More
There is nothing more beautiful in West Crete, no better beach, but you go there with a packed lunch, water and drinks since there are no restaurants and maybe not even a public loo. Don't drop your wastes, Bring more than you brought since we...More

Balos is absolutrly amazing, the most beautiful scenery of the whole island and one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. However you must be prepared to het there - the 7km drive on a heavy stone road which takes about 1 hour driving in...More
