Balos Limnothalassa is perhaps the most famous beach in Crete. It is known worldwide for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty and wonderful exotic landscape. Fortunately, still untouched by tourism and the conservation area is Natura, with rare species of flora and fauna. It is a white sand beach, with local pink shades created by millions of shells. Located between the Cape Gramvousa and the island of Gramvousa. The problem is that the beach is thin and muddy seabed walking causes a bad feeling and sometimes because of shallow water, emits a bad smell. There is also a major concern tar. Outside the lagoon things are much better. One can swim in deep clear, clean waters and if you like snorkeling place is ideal. Access is by road to a point in a very bad and dangerous dirt road along the cliffs of Cape Gramvousa and then walk 20 minutes to the beach. There are also buses from Chania to Kissamos, working with boats. The boats leave from Kissamos.
