4. Balos – Crete

In the northwestern part of the island of Crete is the breathtaking beach, Balos. The rocky beach has white sand with two bays and crystal clear water.

This beach is famous for its turquoise waters and wild, exotic beauty.

In the summer, the beach is full of tourists, so those of you who prefer some quiet places are not recommended to visit in July – August.
