Gramvousa

Northwest of Kissamos is the beautifully wild and remote Gramvousa, whose main attraction is the stunning lagoon like sandy beach of Balos on Cape Tigani on the west side of the peninsula’s narrow tip. The idyllic beach with turquoise waters is overlooked by the two islets of ‘Agria’ and ‘Imeri’. The rough but drivable dirt road (best in a four wheel drive) to Balos begins at the end of the main street of Kalyviani village and follows the eastern slope of Mt Geroskinos. From there the view is spectacular.
