Bali Village in Rethymno Crete Greece
Bali was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbour and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali offers a large choice of taverns, restaurants, little shops, diving school, bars and discos (you can also find a surgery and pharmacy). It is 25 km to Rethymno and about 45 km to Heraklion, where is the nearest airport and a port. The main highway is just about 1 km out of the village. There is a regular bus service on the highway to both towns. Bali offers plenty of worthwhile sightseeing opportunities, such as the old Monastery of Saint John, the Melidoni cave, a lot of traditional mountain villages just a few km from Bali, where you can find traditional products. The area is also recommend for walking and outings to Panormo, Rethymno, and Fodele. Bali is an ideal place for quiet and restful holidays.
