Beach
“Balos beach is probably the most famous beach in Crete island. Every year, hundreds of people with their families or their friends visit this place, to enjoy the white sand and the clear water on this amazing landscape. Balos is located at the bay of Kissamos after Chania, 117 km from the city of Rethymno and there are two options to go there: 1) By car, which is not recommended, as most of the rent a car companies do not provide insurance cover, because the road is awful, full of rocks & cliffs and moreover you need to walk about 40 minutes down the mountain, from the parking area to the beach. 2) The easiest and most recommended way is to go to Kissamos and take the boat trip to Balos. You can book your tickets online and park your car at the parking of the port. The boat also takes you to Gramvousa island, opposite to Balos beach which is a very beautiful place with a shipwreck on the beach.”

Harbor / Marina
“The harbor was built by the Venetians during their colonization in Crete and specifically between 1320 and 1356. It was an important center, serving the Venetian military ships, as well as one of the most important commercial ports of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. In the 16th century, due to a perceived Turkish threat, the harbor was included to the new fortification plans of the city of Chania. A fort constructed next to the entrance of the harbour and enhanced with bastions even on the breakwater. During the period of the Turkish rule, the port continued to be a trade center. Much later, the19th - early 20th century, the largest ships at that time, had to anchor outside the harbor and reach the pier by boat. Thus, the port gradually abandoned and used the large natural harbor of Souda, which serves the passenger and commercial traffic of western Crete until today. On the other hand, the old harbour of Chania hosts small boats and yachts, in its eastern basin. ”

Lake
“Lake Kourna is the only lake with fresh water in Crete. It is situated in a magnificent location, just 4km away from Georgioupolis Chania. It is a rather small lake, known from antiquity with the name Korisia. Lake Kournas is a remarkable destination for an afternoon walk or a day trip. The relaxing and beautiful landscape is ideal for nature lovers. In Lake Kournas, there are two fountains with only one of them being visible, especially during the end of the summer: the Eye, as the locals call the fountain. This natural lake was created by the holdback of the underwater that comes from the White Mountains, the resistant rocks and the lie of the natural cavity. Basically, the lake is a huge hollow which is fed from the southeast side with water due to its soil.”
