Pirates Island  

Daily trip to the Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa island, the price starts from 600€ Up with the anchor, the white sails are raised and as soon as the wind blows we are off to another paradise in Crete, the famous Balos lagoon.We now see the beautiful town of Chania from a different perspective with its tall mountains standing proudly above the sea. After a while all we see is the blue color of the sky and the sea and passing by the first peninsula of Crete we are heading straight to the famous lagoon of Balos and to the island of Gramvousa or else the island of the pirates. The clear green waters and an old shipwreck welcome us to the bay and as soon as we anchor at the small harbor we sense the pirate,energy of the place.

The landscape prepares you for something exotic as if the galleon has just let the pirates off. The beautiful Venetian fortress, which was built in the 16th century to protect them from the Turks, stands proudly above the small harbor attracting us like a magnet. Embrasures, strongholds and an amazing watchtower of the Cretan Sea to admire while the crystal waters tempt us to take a swim. Balos lagoon and its surrounding islands (Gramvousa islets) is a must if you are interested in a sailing trip in the north west part of the island.

Our daily trip starts from Kasteli port.
