What to expect

Discover Gramvousa and Balos from Chania during a guided tour! You will leave at 8am – 9.20am thanks to a personalized pick-up service and after one hour you will arrive at the port of Kissamos. At the end of the gulf, you will notice an impressive geological phenomenon where, because of the passage of time, the western part of the island is rising, while the eastern part is sinking. This phenomenon was mainly created by catastrophic earthquakes that took place in 66 BC and 365 BC.

After 1 hour the boat arrives at the port of Gramvousa. The island's eminent castle was built by the Venetians in 1579 at the highest point of the island, on top of a steep rock at a height of 137m. The panoramic view and the legend of the pirate's hidden treasure will leave you speechless. The walk takes approximately 20 minutes.

Following the two-hour visit to Gramvousa, the boat will depart for the lagoon of Balos. Your stay at the lagoon, where you can enjoy a fantastic swim, will last for about three hours and around 6.30pm you will be accompanied back at your accommodation.
