Visit two of the most famous and popular destinations in Crete with this full day tour from Chania, enjoy Balos’ crystal blue waters and discover Gramvoussas’ impregnable castle which is a masterpiece of the 16th century!

Via the National Road the Gramvousa day tour starts westward passing amazing places and traditional villages until we reach the north-western peninsula of Gramvousa. Our ship is waiting at the port of Kissamos. Cruising close to the peninsula you can see the geological phenomenon of the tilting of Crete, which means its rising out of the sea in the west and drowning in the eastern part.

After approx. 1 hour we cast anchor at the fortified island of Gramvoussa and climb the fortress in a 20 minutes leisure walk. The castle towers on top of a sheer rock face of 137 meters. Spectacular views over the deep blue and green waters of the lagoon.

After a tasty snack on board we continue on our day trip to our second stop at the Lagoon of Balos  With its pristine sands, reddish shell fragments and crystal clear warm water…a pure paradise for swimmers.

Late afternoon we return by boat to Kissamos where the bus is waiting for us. One of the best Crete day tours end full of memories!
