The idyllic village of Bali is situated on the rugged northern coast of Crete, in Greece, and is a great option for those looking to relax for a week or two in the sun. Like many Greek island resorts, Bali started out as a sleepy fishing village, and while its history can still be seen and felt, today Bali holidays are recognised as a modern resort with fantastic beaches and coves (backed by the beautiful Mount Kouloukonas), authentic towns and a quaint harbour – plus a selection of traditional tavernas and bars across the resort.
Whether you head to the hills, hit the coast or enjoy a day out in the nearby cities and towns, Bali holidays are great for young families and friends who like to explore. There's an abundance of things to do in Bali, Crete, which is nestled between the two capital towns of Heraklion and Rethymnon, including the must-see Samaria Gorge – the longest in Europe – and the famous Dikteon Caves, an ideal day trip for adventure seekers. The beaches in the area are gorgeous, and if you want to learn how to dive, the clear waters at Hippocampos Bali Dive Centre are where to head.
Holidays to Bali are accessible from any part of the island, with regular buses running from neighbouring resorts – making it a great base for a day trip. The best time to visit this part of Crete is in late spring, early summer when the weather is pleasant for both beach activities and sightseeing opportunities – the hottest months are July and August. We have fantastic deals on self-catering, half board and full board resorts in this beautiful corner of Greece, so you can sink your toes into the sand and relax knowing you can save a packet on your spring, summer and late getaways!
