The municipality of Kissamos, northwestern Crete, unanimously decided on Thursday to impose a one euro entry fee for those who want to reach the lagoon of Balos.
According to the municipality's board, the money will cover cleaning and maintenance expenses of the area.
Visitors approaching the area by car will pay the entry fee at the end of the road where a toll post will be placed. The measure also includes those approaching Balos from the sea, who will pay the one euro fee at Kissamos port.
