Subjects : The lagoon has a wonderful sea and, for those who are passionate about photography in marine subject, it is very interesting transparencies and color settings for portraits and poses, water games with the tide, details of the coral sand, algae, vegetation landscape in general. I think it's also possible underwater photography, but I have not personally verified the organizations to come together in the warm waters and did not notice photographers committed in this regard, given the brevity of my visit and the tourist season in full.

Recommended equipment : Wide angle lens, telephoto 300mm forward gear macro, tripod for long exposures or any other needs (note that the sand is not always a stable substrate and the rock does not provide easy support in the plan), any protection against wind, salt and water (to traverse the branches of the lagoon).

Best months : I believe that from May to October, the lagoon give the best of himself. In July and August there is a lot of tourist visits, but also the best sea conditions. Moreover, the presence of people can stimulate curious shots. On the other hand, those who love nature is bothered by people ....

How to get there : There is a boat-ferry service in the morning about nine o'clock in part from the port of Kissamos, not far from Chania (where the airport), to the island of Gramvousa (stop for a couple of hours - visited the ruins of a fortress overlooking the sea and interesting destination for nature photographers interested in marine landscapes) and then to the lagoon (another pause of a couple of hours abundant), for returning to the port of departure at the end of the afternoon. Bring water and food, to high also sold on board. There is a dirt road that runs along the rocky peninsula which is located behind Balos (twenty poor kilometers), preferably viable off-road or suitable means and leading to the lagoon always starting from Kissamos, but at some point it is necessary to leave the car and walk down to the sea on a trail. This solution allows you to stay in Balos all the time you want to take pictures at sunset, for example, or when the tourist inflow decreases. The road option I have not tested it personally, but I've seen a lot of practice. Moreover, from the top you can enjoy the best possible view of the lagoon as a whole, with all the features of color and situations which offers sea water. And 'possible to agree with the owners of boats and speedboats can visit the place by sea in small groups (Marina Kissamos)

Visits : Input of course free. Check prices and times of passage in boat or other transport (about fifteen euro per person) at the port of Kissamos.

Notes : The visit to Balos Lagoon was a particularly exciting for me that I love the seascapes in the Caribbean or a wild character. Live here in the Mediterranean arid and wild and warm waters of the Caribbean and their colorful reef, in a very particular context. I had the camera with me is that the small compact Sony W300 I use often in situations a little 'delicate for the camera and I took advantage of both (mostly the fast compact), with the discomfort of turning bag over his shoulder in a bathing suit. If you want to make a vacation or a trip to Crete (island of enchantment for fotogtrafo!), A visit to Balos is really good, and not only for photographers. Maria Laura Spini
