Description

Balos Lagoon is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Greece with a unique beach full of many different sea shells, where you can have a fantastic swim in waters so crystal clear, you will think you are dreaming. Join this dreamy tour for unforgettable memories.

We start our cruise from Kolymbari port heading parallel with the Rodopou peninsula close to the Rocky Mountains where the views are breathtaking. Enjoying the ride while gazing at the secluded bays and learning some important historic information about the area by our skipper you begin to free your mind. After about an hour we reach Balos Lagoon - before the big ferries arrive full of people - so we can peacefully enjoy a refreshing break in the majestic blue lagoon. After Balos we proceed to Gramvousa Island, the small port of Gramvousa with the famous castle built in 1579 by the Venetians at the highest point of the island, on top of a steep, 137-metre-high rock. Its majestic beauty combined with the panoramic view of Balos lagoon and the legend of hidden pirate treasure linked to it, are good reasons to put on your sneakers and take the 20-minute walk that will get you up there. Apart from your visit to the castle, you can swim to the small beach with the crystal waters and also enjoy your lunch packages. Leaving the Gramvousa Island and Balos Lagoon we follow the same route back close to the Rocky Mountains and small secluded bays like Menies Beach that are ideal for quick dives. The beauty of the scenery, the privacy and the panoramic vistas help you relax far away from crowded beaches. 

Let our skipper create a special 7-8 hours speedboat tour for you, your family and friends and enjoy a hassle-free day and the benefits of local knowledge from fully qualified skippers working for Uncharted Escapes every day.
