Menies or Diktynna is located 45km northwest of Chania, on the northeastern shores of Cape Rodopos and at the exit of Foundas Gorge. It is a wonderful secluded beach with pebbles and deep crystal blue waters. It is not affected by the usual winds blowing in the area and it is ideal for isolation, far away from the urban centers. In a distance of many kilometers there are absolutely no facilities.

Balos: The famous lagoon of Balos is a shallow , sandy beach formed between the Cape Gramvousa and the small Cape Tigani , below the mountain range of Platiskinos. Balos is surely the beach that has been photographed the most in Crete, a favorite subject of all tourist guides of Greece. It is no coincidence that Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited Balos with their private yacht many years ago.
Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, its wild natural beauty and the beautiful exotic scenery. During the summer, Balos is visited by thousands of people. It would be ideal to arrive at Balos in the morning. These few hours of remoteness in such a heavenly place will remain etched on your memory forever.
The lagoon of Balos has white sand and exotic white, vivid blue and turquoise waters. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal for young children. In many places the sand has a lovely pinkish color, because of millions of crushed shells. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon, the water is deeper and colder, ideal for snorkeling. The lagoon and the wider area, with rare species of flora and fauna, are protected by the Natura 2000 program.
