… the pirate island! The Island of Gramvoussa, is located on the north west Crete across the Balos Lagoon. The only inhabitants of the island are the animals and the undergrowth. Gramvoussa island is also a protected area. The castle on the top of the island, the crystal clear water, the myth for the pirates’ hidden treasure and the shipwreck which is standing at the beach from 1968 create a fairy atmosphere!
