While in Crete we decided to rent a car and visit Balos Lagoon. This place is otherworldly. There was also a relatively smaller crowd in comparison to some of Crete’s popular beaches. It’s so off the beaten path that there is literally only one cafe there. No food. I repeat, No food. Do not make the mistake we made by showing up with nothing but a few pieces of fruit and some snacks. Although, the crystal clear water makes you forget about your hunger in an instant.
I noticed some people had set up campsites here as well. Maybe if we were younger. But you should try it out!
