Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa island 

Live your summer myth in Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa island on a luxury motor yacht!

On this amazing private cruise along the northwest coast of the island, you will enjoy the sea breeze and the Cretan sun as you discover the incomparable beauty of Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa Island on a 55ft luxury motor yacht.

Widely recognized as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, Balos is an unmissable experience during your holiday in Crete. Balos is famous for its turquoise waters and its pink-white sand, which gets its colour from millions of crushed shells and corals. The wild natural beauty creates a unique and exotic scenery.

After Balos, we cruise to the pirate island of Gramvousa. A path starting from the beach leads you to the highest point of the island, where you can admire the Venetian Castle and the magnificent view of Balos, and the neighbouring islands of wild Gramvousa and Antikythera.

Enjoy snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters and explore the reef next to a shipwreck.
