The Balos sunset experience

One of the big advantages to driving to Balos is that you can go there and leave whenever you want — departing early in the morning to arrive before all the ferries, and leaving in the late afternoon or early evening so you can enjoy the lagoons after the ferry crowds have disappeared. You can also hang around even longer to watch a magnificent sunset.

 

“If you stay at the beach until late in the afternoon, then take no hurry to leave; walk higher up the path and enjoy one of the most breathtaking sunsets you have ever seen.” — Elizabeth Estate Agency

Another sunset view of Balos and Tigani, this time in an Elizabeth Estate Agency website photo by Giannis Fountoulakis 

 

This video shows evening and sunset-time aerial views of the Balos beaches and lagoons, Cape Tigani, Gramvousa island and the surrounding area. The clip was posted online by Folia Hotel Apartments at Agia Marina, a beach resort area 8 km west of Chania.

 

 

 

 

 More Balos videos

 You’ll find thousands of Balos films online, though many the clips are personal vacation videos that show more of the people doing the filming than the beach and its surroundings.  Here are a few of my favourite videos that focus primarily on the beach, lagoons and scenery:

This is a fun timelapse video that Michal Lapko shot during a ferry ride from Kissamos to Balos in September 2014

 

The lagoon of Balos, a 4.5-minute clip by Simply Crete, primarily features aerial views of the beach and lagoon, but also includes some underwater shots and shows part of the driving route to Balos

 

In his film Balos Crete, LucasPaludetto takes you on a scenic 2-minute flight above the beach and the footpaths leading to it along the surrounding rocky slopes
