A great trip for any Chania visitor is the mini-cruise to Gramvousa and Balos! The castle of Gramvousa was built by Venetians on top of some steep cliffs as fortification. Today it offers visitors a panoramic view of the amazingly blue waters of the Cretan Sea.

What to expect?

Stop at: Chania Venetian Lighthouse

Our trip starts at your hotel or a location in its vicinity with our bus. Our destination is the port of Kisamos.

Stop at: Gramvousa Fortress

As soon as we reach the port, you go aboard the ship to set out on the cruise. The ship departs from the port at 10:20 am. An hour later you reach the small island of Gramvousa. The ship stays at the island for two hours. The castle of Gramvousa is to be found at the top of the island. If you wish, you can climb up the path to the castle, if not, you can stay on the beach and swim. (Climbing will take you at least 20 minutes.) The ship departs from Gramvousa Island at 01:30 pm, the breath-taking lagoon of Balos is the next stop. The journey is short, and lasts only about 20 minutes. The ship reaches Balos at 01:50 pm, and stays there for three hours.

Stop at: Balos Lagoon

Words can’t possibly do justice to the wild beauty your eyes will see once you reach Balos.

The white and pink sand, the turquoise, warm and shallow waters, the rocks reaching for the sky around the lagoon, all these amazing elements come together to create a heavenly landscape, which you are bound to want to return to!

The ship departs for Kissamos Port at 04:30 pm.

Stop at: Kastelli Kissamos Old Port

On board and throughout the journey, you can enjoy your meal in the self-service restaurants of the ship, where traditional Cretan dishes are being offered, or at the ship’s bar. You reach Kissamos Port an hour later, our bus will be waiting for you there, in order to return you to your hotel.
