A quiet port town situated on Crete's western tip, Kissamos attracts mostly domestic tourists and possesses more of the quintessential Greek feel than livelier resorts strung along the island's coastline.
Escape the urban bustle at Sfinari Beach and Mavros Molos. Discover out-of-the-way places like Maria Beach Bar and Kastro Gramvoussas. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kissamos: Cretan Brewery (in Zounaki), Elafonissi (Aspri Limni Beach & Elafonisi Viewpoint) and Odigitria Monastery (in Kolymbari). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Balos Lagoon, explore the fascinating underground world of Agia Sofia Cave, enjoy the sand and surf at Agia Marina Beach, and get engrossed in the history at Archaeological Museum of Kissamos.
