If I had to define spectacular I would simply say breathtaking. In front of the spectacular places you get the feeling that words are not enough to portray their overwhelming beauty.
I must say that I felt speechless quite a few times during my travel experiences. One of the places that had such an effect on me was Balos Beach, also called the Lagoon of Balos. Situated on the Gramvousa Island, in the region of Chania, this Greek jewel is the most famous and beautiful beach in Crete.
When I first saw this piece of heaven from the top of the cliffs, I simply felt that my heart stopped for a few seconds. Breathtaking is the term I would use, if I had to describe that scenery in just one word. This amazing blue lagoon seems to flaunt its beauty among the high cliffs that surround it.
Once you get to the beach, you will be delighted by a stretch of pink and white sand which seems to be spoiled in the sunlight by the crystal blue waters. Balos Beach is a natural masterpiece, a place which will give you the chance to experience heaven on earth.
If I haven’t convinced you yet, you should take a look at my beautiful collection of pictures which I’m sure will help you make a decision.
