Bali is a coastal village situated 37klm east of Rethymno. It is the second main resort on the north coast of the prefecture after the town of Rethymno. Very picturesque with wonderful bays and part of it built on the ancient site of Astali, Bali combines the beauty of a small place with all the facilities of a tourist resort.
There are several beaches and a small port with a waterside cluster of cafes and tavernas. Bali is a combination of sea, mountain, pretty white houses and lots of flowers around the hillsides.
From Bali you have the chance to visit the Melidoni cave and the traditional village of Margarites with the old pottery workshops. The Monastery of Saint John is also worth visiting.
