The delightful way in which this tucked away village hugs the coastline of hills and valleys makes it a very attractive and romantic spot, with restaurants and tavernas jumbling together close to the waters edge. Life is easy going and simple with lots of opportunity to bask in the sun or to enjoy the clear calm sea at number of tiny sand and shingle beaches, and Bali offers a large choice of tavernas, restaurants, little shops, and a disco. One of the little coves is for naturist sun bathing.
It is 32 km to Rethymnon and about 46 km to Heraklion or 45 minute drive, with the main highway just about 2 km out of the village and a regular bus service on the highway to both towns. From Bali there are plenty of worthwhile sightseeing opportunities, for example the Melidoni cave in the traditional mountain village of Margarites, or the old pottery works.
Where to stay
These two villas are situated on a hillside in the mountainous village of Vlychada. They have magnificent views over the small holiday resort of Bali, only 3 km away.
