Highlights

  • Delightful turquoise water and white sand
  • A great day trip if traveling by car or boat
  • A very popular summer beach spot for tourists and locals alike
If you’ve ever wanted to vacation like royalty, then look no further than the famous Balos beach and lagoon, where Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana once visited on their private yacht. 

Famous for its turquoise waters and white sand (with beautiful pink hues in places), Balos beach is a busy tourist location during the summer, but you’ll definitely find a place to lay your head—or beach towel.
