"Balos, The road of your nightmares" Mountain and Plateau Tip by kat-m
Mountain and Plateau, Crete Island: 9 reviews and 15 photos
Oh well, I should be used to the roads by now, and I was forewarned. As usual I just had to go. The road is a rough path climbing steeply up and around a peninsula with massive drops about 2 yards away fromt the car. The worst thing about the road is knowing you have to come back! On arrival at the end of the road there is a carpark and a canteen selling light snacks and drinks, water is most welcome as you have a bit of a walk to get down to the beach. What a spectacular sight! The view is stunning and the colours of the sea is unforgettable. An alternative is to go round the peninsula by ferry from kissamos, but we missed it. A very scenic and hairaising trip. See main pic on crete island page.
