Imagine a beach where thin rose-colored sands stretch as far as you can, right next to the deep blue clear waters. How many people are there who can’t hold their breath in front of this view that we’re not used to seeing?

Balos, which is considered one of the best beaches in Crete with its sugar-pink soft sands and vivacious blue sea, is a blessing, especially for families with children thanks to its warm and shallow waters.
