Bali Holidays Travel Guide

Bali is an attractive fishing village in Crete, although when many people hear the destination of Bali they instantly think of Indonesia, although this is normally the case  they wouldn't be disappointed if they were to visit Bali in Crete as it is a resort of natural beauty, clear blue seas and friendly welcoming locals.

The village of Bali is starting to wake up to tourism, but it still steeped in tradition and thankfully hasn't modernised too much.  The houses in Bali are still covered in lovely pink flowers, with the white washed houses creeping down the hillside to the small fishing port at the bottom.

The village of Bali is hidden in a small cove, between a large peninsula and mountainous range.  If your looking for a quiet holiday, then choosing Bali would be ideal.  A Bali holiday is great for couples and families alike.

Bali - General Information

As mentioned before Bali has nothing to do with the Indonesian holiday destination and in fact got its name from the Turkish word for honey, the reason being Bali was well known for producing excellent honey in times gone by.

The main beach of Bali is a sandy and pebble beach which is well catered for with small Taverna's and beach bars.  These beaches never get too busy and are ideal for those who just want to step out of the hotel straight onto the beach. Those who want to explore farther afield will find hidden covers with beautiful smaller beaches.

If your looking to find traditional Greek restaurants in Bali then you will not be disappointed, there are a few fish Taverna's that are dotted through the village and on the seafront, all with excellent food usually landed on the day from the fishing boats.

If you want to book a Bali holiday, then its well recommended to search through some of the major tour operators like Thomson Holidays or Thomas Cook, these companies have some lovely villas, studios and apartments in the small village and fly regularly to Crete.

Bali - Monasteries and Churches

Like many other coastal villages in Crete the landscapes and scenery are breathtaking and there is plenty for the avid walker and explorer to do.  One of the key points of interest for holidaymaker's in this area is Prodromos Monastery at Agios Ionnis, also the mountain village of Margarites within you will find the Melidoni Cave.

If exploring the mountain villages isn't for you then try the water sports  available in the area, including windsurfing, canoeing and water snorkelling.  Scuba diving and fishing are always popular in this area and with a bit of local knowledge you can see some amazing underwater sights and catch some large fish including bream and grouper.

The best way to explore the rugged countryside and sights in Bali and Rethymnon is to hire a car.  
Holiday Autos does some very cheap car hire in this area and you can pick it up at Chania airport or at your accommodation.
