A few  words about Bali village:

Bali is built on the ancient town of Astali,  or Atali. The name of Bali comes from the Turkish language and  means honey, probably because of the existence of many bees in the area, or from the word ballik which means fish.

Bali is a famous summer resort with many traditional  restaurants, shops , bars,  schools for swimming and plugging, as well as a medical center and a pharmacy .  

There is  frequent communication by bus with Heraklion and Rethymnon.

From the port of Bali start  cruises by little  boats, sailing along the beautiful coast  of caves and rocks .
