If you are about to get to Balos beach by car, while coming from Chania, pass by Kissamos 1 where the national highway ends, and follow the road to the port of Kissamos 2 .
Approximately five minutes drive from Kissamos (4,7 Km), there is a right turn that leads to the village of Kaliviani 3 . (If you won't turn, the road leads to other two of the best beaches on Crete, which are Falassarna and Elafonissi).
Passing by Kaliviani, the asphalt road continues up the Balos Beach Hotel 4 , and beyond that, starts the 8 km dirt road that will lead you to the parking lot over Balos beach-lagoon.
Along the dirt road, you will have the chance to view the sea area of the bay of Kissamos. Although this does not apply to the driver who has to pay the appropriate attention to avoid the stones on the road.
