Today there are in and around Bali in Crete
more hotels than fishing huts, along with restaurants, bars, supermarkets and other shops of all kinds. At rent-a-car companies
such as Eurocars Crete
you can order your rental car
via the Internet directly to the hotel, or to the airport
, or pick it up at the airport
and drop it off at your hotel in Bali
, as you wish.
Although Bali has changed, it still offers a beautiful sight. Especially when you come from Heraklion
in the morning, the village with its white hotels is very picturesquely situated along the west side of the bay in the morning sun.
The hotels extend to the southern tip of the bay. There is a wide sandy beach, and another beach is just aside the small fishing port.
As you drive through the village and turn left just before the port, you come on a windy minor road to the Hotel Evita
. There is in a small bay the third sandy beach of Bali
, and the Atlantis Dive Center
start from here to some of their most beautiful diving excursions.
A beautiful view of Bali enjoys also the small village of Vlychada which lies on the south side of the bay, on the slope of the mountain on the other side of the national road. Up there, there are since some years some more comfortably equipped hotels.
