Bali in Crete
Hotels and apartments
This was originally a small fishing hamlet, but over
the years has grown into a bustling tourist village, with pretty white
houses and lots of flowers set closely around little hillsides, overlooking
the little fishing harbour and the sea. The delightful way in which
this tucked away village hugs the coastline of hills and valleys makes
it a very attractive and romantic spot, with restaurants and tavernas
jumbling together close to the waters edge.
Life is easy going and simple with lots of opportunity
to balk in the sun or to enjoy the clear calm sea at number of tiny
sand and shingle beaches, and Bali offers a large choice of tavernas,
restaurants, little shops, and a disco. One of the little coves is
for naturist sun bathing. It is 32 km to Rethymno and about 46 km
to Heraklion or 45 minute drive, with the main highway just about
2 km out of the village and a regular bus service on the highway to
From Bali there are plenty of worthwhile sightseeing
opportunities, for example the Melidoni cave in the traditional mountain
village of Margarites, or the old pottery works.
