According to CNN, Balos and Falassarna are included on the list of the World’s 100 best beaches!

Here is how they were presented:

100. Falassarna Beach

Best thing about the sand at Falassarna ?
There’s so much of it there’s little chance of playing beach-mat overlap with strangers.
his slice of coast takes in five consecutive beaches, the middle ones being most popular, the ones on the ends better for solitary sun lovers.
Highlight: On the first Saturday of August, thousands descend for Crete’s biggest beach party.


35. Balos Beach, Crete, Greece

Cameras compulsory. Near Kissamos on Crete, Balos Beach is a lagoon of swirling colors — pastel pinks, blues and turquoise.
It can get crowded and microorganisms in the muddy shallows can cause unpleasant smells, but for postcard pictures it’s one of Greece’s best.
Highlight: For “dark tourists” there’s a cave here that was the scene of a massacre in the 19th century.
